When you are booking a sailing trip with Komodo boat for a week, things could be quite boring after a few days. The thing is, Komodo National Park is so wide with dozens of little islands and mind-blowing dive sites to explore—and each one of them is particularly unique to another. For true adventurers, the basic three days sailing trip that’s commonly offered by the majority of liveaboard operators are not enough. However, the time that it takes to sail from one destination to another could be quite long. Soon, you would be running out of thing to do in the boat—especially when phone signals doesn’t reach to the sea to connect you to the internet. To save you from the burden of boredom, we have gathered seven fun things to do onboard during the long sailing trip.
Go Fishing Right from the Komodo Boat
If you know you would be spending a lot of time in the sea, you might probably as well go for fishing! It’s one of the most exciting thing to on boat. Beside that, how often do you sail in a boat and have a chance to caught fresh fishes? However, fishing in Komodo’s waters need advanced preparation—otherwise, you would be charged for illegal fishing. If you plan to do fishing to fill up vacant times in Komodo boat, do notify your boat operator and pay the fees. The Komodo National Park itself has been known as a GT fishing heaven, offering any fisher a huge catch and adrenaline pumps.
Learn How to Sail with the Skipper
You could just lie lazily in the boat’s sun-beds while the boat steadily cross the sea, enjoying the panoramic surrounding and get lulled by the wind. Or you could get up and fill your time by learning something absolutely new: how to sail. When you have absolutely nothing to do, come up to the skippers, have a lively chat with them, and ask them to teach you on how to navigate the sail, basic rope knots, reading the wind, or even the direction of the stars!
Pick Up A Guitar and Play Some Music
Music is one of absolute boredom-killers. Problem is, you can’t connect Spotify or Google Music to your online playlist—or if you do have the offline versions, your phone is probably lying sadly with low battery. So pick up a guitar and start playing your favourite song!
Read Your Favourite Books
How many times have you read an actual book (or the digital one in Kindle) back home? In our busy world, we always find excuses to skip books; works, house duties, going out, sleeping, and else. Here in Komodo boat, you have plenty of time to waste—and you could better put it on reading those books you have never finished.
Write Your Dive Logs
With a handful of stunning dive sites to explore and loads of activities lining up afterwards, it’s easy to forget your dive logs and spent most of your vacant time to lie around the deck instead. Make use of the time by filling up the details of your recent dives to the log book. Don’t wait until you get back home. The sooner you fill, the more details you’ll remember. Also, you will get invested on filling up the book to forget the time.
