How long is the boat trip from Flores to Komodo?
I shall be there in February (rainy season)
Unless you are doing a pre-arranged tour e.g. from Bali, answers to your questions will vary. Depending on demand, and it will not be high in February, you can negotiate prices for a boat trip of two days one night visiting both Rinca and Komodo islands when you arrive in Labuanbajo. Time to Rinca is a few hours from Labuanbajo and then another couple across to Komodo. It depends whether you are stopping to snorkel along the way - highly recommended - and the type of boat. It is a few years since I went to Komodo and I don't know whether things have improved, but the accommodation was rat infested so I would recommend sleeping on the boat.
If you are travelling alone, it may be worth joining a tour that leaves from Bali. Quite a few on offer but have a look at the Perama website just to get an idea.
Have a great trip.

if you take one day tour by a boat trip to PulaU Rinca,From Labuan Bajo Pier would take about two hours. It would be better if you joint a package tour....there aRE
if you take one day tour by a boat trip to PulaU Rinca,From Labuan Bajo Pier would take about two hours. It would be better if you joint a package tour....there aRE many tour operator along Sukarno Hatta street-Labuan Bajo, they offer a trip to Komodo National Parks....a one day tour cost to Pulau Rinca is about IDR 325K to 500K, depend on how many persons ....
