Visit Komodo with Samara Liveaboard

Share A True Adventure

When 5 years ago we started to build Samara 1 and Samara 2, little we knew about our journey ahead. It was a wild and romantic,- but also a very challenging time. Living and Working on a beach surrounded by jungle, dealing with the countless technical aspects of boatbuilding. It was a high intense experience. To see and to help building this impressive wooden Phinisis was worth wile! With a lot of work and the help of many hands we launched this two boats in 2016 and 2017 and started to operate them successfully from the port of Labuan Bajo, the Gate to visit Komodo and the surrounding National Park.

Sail Komodo Save And In True Luxury

Today the Samara Phinisis are among the most successful and well maintained Yachts in Labuan Bajo. We are proud to have delivered extraordinary memories to hundreds of our customers over the last years. Samara today stands for a truly luxury sailing experience in the Komodo National Park.

    Magical, memorable, magnificent.

    Took the fam (wife, 3 kids 18, 15 & 6 and myself) on a 3-day 2-night circuit around Komodo National Park on the Samara. Hand-crafted boat was gorgeous and comfortable, staff were terrific, food was delicious and plentiful and the environment was just incredible. The personal touches of Fresa (Indonesian) & Marc (Swiss) came through in every detail and we can’t recommend it highly enough!

    Definitely an experience that will never be forgotten! The room was always cool and the beds were clean and comfortable. Surprisingly, my children had no problem sleeping on the boat. We never had to worry about being hungry cause they serve abundant, delicious food from morning til’ evening. And to top if off, the entire crew was sensational! Very friendly and never hesitated to help us and to take care of the children. Thank you for the wonderful trip, we will definitely come back again someday

    Enno Lorian

    We are very and happily satisfied with the boat facilities, especially the delicious food that they served. The crew was friendly and helpful, even though we had a little trouble with unfitting snorkeling equipment, over all my family and I really enjoyed the experience of our holiday in Flores with Samara Liveaboard

    Kenanga Wungu

    Very well organized, incredibly lively and warm crew. Note worthy, the professional and attentive attitude to every passenger. Very knowledgable and helpful. We had an amazing experience, such as hiking, trekking and snorkeling despite the fact that we are not very “sporty”, but the crew made sure we were ok every step of the way. Delicious food and great service. Thank you Samara for making this a memorable experience.

    Joe L

    Best crew, best chef – always making sure that the boat is nice and clean. The kids loved sitting on the deck looking at the breathtaking view of all the islands! All in all, just perfect.

    Ayu Nadya Parama

    We are two families with eight people and Samara II is an amazing boat! It has plenty of room for us. The chef is great and always ready to serve us. And the captain, Mr. Stefan always ensured that we were safe. We love the crew too, they are amazingly helpful. Not just us, the parents, but also our four teenagers had a great time visiting Komodo National Park. We highly recommend Samara!
