Speed Boats

If you like to explore most of the attractions in the Komodo National Park only in one day, we recommend a speed boat. The speed boats can host 1 to maximum 15 people. They have a cabin and an outside place to sit. 

There are no toilets or a bar on board. You either can go to Rinca, Padar or Komodo Island or you might also combine two or three of these islands.

Compared to wooden boats with diesel engines speed boats are much faster, but also more expensive.
Below you can find a comparison for how much time you need to go to each Island by speed boat and by a wooden buginese boat.

One Way Speed Boat Wooden Diesel Boat
Rinca Island  40 minutes  2 hours
Komodo Island  90 minutes 4 to 5 hours
Padar Island  90 minutes  4 to 5 hours

The given times are approximate depending on the weather and sea conditions.
