Some surf boat charter companies have their own advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, it is better for you to know how to find the best surf charters for spending your valuable holidays. And here are the tips in how you are doing it.

Get your surf boat charter from the qualified surf company

Some places that are best for surfing are possible to offer the boat charter for the surfers. Some are offered by the local people to send you to the surfing spots without being accompanied with the surf instructors and some are giving you the complete surf package where you will not only guided by the professional surf instructors but also have someone to share the same interest.

If you need the professional surf charters, you’d better getting it from the surf company even though what the local people are offering can also be considered. But first, think about which one will really prioritize your safety because surfing can be as dangerous as you have never been imagined.

Surf company that have been establishing for years can be the main options while the cost can also be affordable enough.

Ensure that the surf boat charters have interesting itinerary

We have the same amount of time while being on the land or the sea. When you are spending your holidays at the surf boat while surfing at the best spots, surely that you will also need to do something else than just being on a surfboard for the whole day or in case you need some beneficial diversions on the next day.

Island hoping can be included into the itinerary while there will be things to do at each islands you will be visited. All of those things can make your surf holidays be more unforgettable as long as the surf charters company have their own itinerary.

Surf charters with evacuation plans

Everywhere can be the battle field for the travelers including the surfers. You will never know what things could happen while controlling the surfboard among the big waves. In such condition, the surf company should have been trained their team (the boat’s crew) in how to keep safe the surfers as well as the boat itself in case the wind and the sea are changing.

Surf companies should have been known what to do when there will be something like that through the evacuation plans both for the surfers and the boat.

Ask the boat charter company if you are possible to stay on the boat during your surf trip

Accommodation is always the main thing to think about when planning the travel. If you think that the surf boat charter is what you will need for the next trip, you’d better ask the company or travel operator whether or not you are going to stay the whole days in the boat.

Even some of the liveaboard travel providers are not allowing the travelers to spend the night on board. So does when you are renting the surf boat, you have to make sure that the boat is possible as your main accommodation to experience the ultimate level of your surfing trip.

Komodo Liveaboard: How to Save Money for the Trip

The raw and wonderful cruising trip to Komodo National Park, Flores, with the notorious Komodo liveaboard has long been kept as summer dream for many travelers. And the trip will continue to be a dream if you do nothing to make it come true. While most of us are not millionaires—who can arrange any liveaboard trip anytime we wish—it takes a bit of financial planning to book the liveaboard vacation in Komodo. We need to save money, spare some income, limit expenditures, and carefully pick itineraries and extra facilities we want and can afford. We know your struggle, too, and that’s why we want to share some insight on how to save money so that you could set sail in the dreamy Komodo sooner than you think. 

Simple Tips to Make Money for Komodo Liveaboard Trip

Set A Komodo Liveaboard Jar of Changes

The easiest and simplest way to make money for sailing with Komodo liveaboard is, of course, saving changes from your weekly consumption. Remember how Carl and Ellie of Pixar’s UP saving up their changes into a glass jar for their dream trip to the Paradise Falls? Take their example and set your own daily saving.

Limit Café Breaks

Also, limit your coffee-to-go per week. Whenever you want to stop by Starbucks, JCo, Dunkin’ Donuts (or other coffee shop) for a quick grab, think about sailing away in Komodo’s remote, peaceful landscape. It doesn’t mean that you need to cut your daily caffeine consumption at all. If you can’t live without your regular morning coffee, consider to purchase grounded coffee beans and brew your own at home. Take it with you in tumbler or thermos and enjoy it in your office (or class). Just so you know, a bag of good quality coffee beans or grounded coffee, that could last nearly a month, is equal to 2 cups of Starbucks’ grande cups of coffee. Simply cutting off your daily visit to coffee shop will save you a lot more money than you thought.

Set Up A Garage Sale

We all have few things we don’t use anymore though they are still in perfect condition. Having a garage sale is a good idea to earn more extra money for making your Komodo liveaboard sailing trip comes true. Go through your house, look deeper inside your cabinet. Find clothes that you rarely use, stuffs you (or your kids) have outgrown, or things that you’ve find plainly boring for no reasons. Bonus point if you have accessories or furnitures that you don’t use anymore; like table lamps, rice cookers, bangles and necklace, hats, baby cribs, or even a couch! They usually sold quicker. Garage sale buyers love furnitures that they couldn’t normally purchase. Also, you don’t have to have an actual garage to have a sale—just post it in your social media or put it in secondhand marketplace site!

Sign Up for Temporary Online Taxi/ Taxibike

Most Komodo liveaboard boat trip are usually come affordable after you save up for three months or so. You can even take the basic one for just one to two millions rupiah for 3D2N sailing—though not for the best experience. Medium class liveaboard with double bed cabins and standard hotel facilities could cost you 5 – 7 millions rupiah for same duration of trip, and probably more on boats with additional water sport facilities onboard. If you think you need more money for your dream Komodo trip, consider to sign up as Uber/ Lyft driver and earn extra bucks this way. If you stay in Indonesia, you would not see any Uber or Lyft, but you’ll find the local counterpart: Gojek and Grab. Start driving in your spare time and you’d be quite shocked to have more than a million rupiah just in a week. Yes, that’s actually possible!
