Labuan Bajo is a fishing town located at the western end of Flores in the Nusa Tenggara region of east Indonesia.
Once a small fishing village, Labuan Bajo (also spelled Labuhanbajo and Labuanbajo) in Flores is now a busy bustling center of tourism. It is the launching point for trips to Komodo Island and Rinca Island, home to the famous Komodo dragons. Nearby Kanawa and Seraya Islands are a great opportunity to do some diving and snorkeling and every evening at Kalong Island thousands of flying fox bats put on an amazing display. Within a few hours of Labuan Bajo can be found several waterfalls, trekking and many diverse beaches.
The best season goes from October to March, a warm water current comes from Australia making the GT's more aggressive. Our boats set sails around 6:30am from the Labuan Bajo port, heading to our fishing spots about an hour from the dock. Giant Trevally fishing must be accompanied by appointed national park onboard, they shall be supervise the fishing to ensure catch and release for the fished fish.
There are hundreds of places where the GT likes to hunt, but after years of experience we know exactly where to take you.
For popping and jigging the boat has capacity for up to five anglers, and for fly fishing anglers you have beautiful flats to enjoy casting. We do not provide fly fishing tackle, a #12 or bigger is highly recommended. For popping and jigging you can rent from us high quality tackle and lure for 50 USD per day/per angler.
You will arrive at the Ngurah Rai International Airport in Bali, where you will stay for the night to catch the next day a 40 minutes domestic flight to Labuan Bajo. We highly recommend to stay 2 or 3 days in Bali to rest from the long flight and enjoy Bali, there are lots of places to visit like the monkey forest, beautiful temples and beaches. From the airport you will go straight to the hotel and you can use the rest of the day to visit Labuan Bajo or take a fast trip to Komodo National Park and meet face to face with the amazing Komodo dragon. All transfers from and to airports are included and prearranged, you don't have to worry about that.
