Diving & Snorkelling with Komodo Island’s Finest Liveaboards

In the land of dragons, manta rays rule the underwater world. Rich in coral reefs and ripe for drift dives, Komodo Island is a part of Indonesia best experienced with a luxury liveaboards holiday.

Surrounded by the Komodo National Park taking in 26 smaller and 3 major islands of the coast of Flores, Komodo Island is a mecca for divers. With abundant opportunities to get up close and personal with dozens of manta rays, whitetip and grey reef sharks, eagle rays and dogtooth tuna, it’s a sea-life diver’s delight.

For those looking to discover some of the most stunning undersea vistas in the world, the drift diving around Komodo is not to be missed, offering you impressive views of sandy bottoms, endless beds of soft corals and dramatic walls. The sheer size and variety of Komodo National Park means that liveaboards are the only way to see all that this part of the world has to offer, and LDADiveTravel is the only liveaboards provider you need.

Diving level: Experienced divers

Itineraries: 5 to 14 nights

Best time to go: April to August

Liveaboard in paradise

For those looking to explore Komodo National Park, there are a wealth of choices in your liveaboard holiday. However long you’re planning on staying and whatever kind of budget you have, there’s a vessel for you. Largely you’ll have a choice between sailboats and steel-hulled yachts, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Gaff-rigged Phinisi sailboats like the Indo Siren and the Arenui offer classical grace and comfort but can be somewhat noisy, while quick and stable steel-hulled yachts like the MV Gaia Love and the Mermaid offer a smoother ride, perfect for anyone prone to seasickness. These boats split thire time between Komodo and Raja Ampat, but some remain in Komodo year-round.

BEST TIME TO GO

The best time to dive in Komodo is from April to August, offering the most choice in terms of liveaboards. This also coincides with the dry season and the period of coldest sea temperatures, offering great visibility and the best pelagic action. However, Komodo is a gem year-round.
