Talking about tropical weather, there’s a high chance that you might get some wet days during the sailing time. Relax, this won’t be the end of the world. This is the risk you have to take and tackle. Luckily, we have covered some compelling activities to keep you entertained during rainy times in the Flores sea.
It’s Just A Short Rain
As long as you are not visiting the Komodo during January to February, everything would be okay. Two first month of the year calls the wet season in this region. It’s when the rain is the heaviest. Light rain might unpredictably come all year long, which is normal in tropical country. Mind you, Indonesian’s easter region like Bali and Flores receive lesser rain than the western region (like Java). If it does rain outside the wet months, be assured that the rain is light and doesn’t last very long. Most of the times, it only last thirty minutes to an hour.
When It’s Light, You Can Still Go Outside
Because the rain in Flores could be very light when it falls out of its season, many Komodo cruises operator in Labuan Bajo desides to continue the itinerary. We have seen travelers continue their hike to the fabulous Padar Island or the Gili Lawa. Just wear a light raincoat and you’re good to go. You can also dive and snorkel during the rain—you’re going to be wet anyway. Light rain doesn’t really impact the underwater except for reducing a bit of visibility.
Play Some Games
The rain is less inviting for a casual chill on the open deck. During the rain, most passenger would either gather on the indoor salon or catching some rest on their cabins. This is a great opportunity to have fun with other travelers you’ve been sharing the boat with! The best Komodo Labuan Bajo cruises usually prepare some group games on the table. Pick up UNO, Jenga, card decks, or popular board games to turn the boredom into fun times!
