Abundant marine life
Located 200 nautical miles east of Bali, the Komodo National Park is nestled between the large island of Sumbawa and Flores in Indonesia, all of which are part of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Accepted under the UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Programme in January 1977, and officially declared a World Heritage Site in 1991, Komodo National Park encompasses 132,000 hectares of marine waters making it one of the largest protected zones in the world.
Maps & Itinerary
Scuba diving in Komodo National Park is best done by liveaboard, which allows you to explore the area to its fullest.
The park and surrounding area boasts one of the world’s richest marine environments, with over 260 species of reef building coral, 70 species of sponge, marine worms, molluscs, echinoderms, crustaceans, over 1,000 species of cartilaginous and bony fish, marine reptiles, and marine mammals. Some notable marine species on this 10 night liveaboard itinerary include pygmy seahorses, anglerfish, nudibranchs, manta rays, dolphins, Napoleon wrasse and groupers.
As no visit to Komodo National Park would be complete without encountering the world-famous Komodo Dragons, our 10 night Komodo liveaboard itinerary also includes a land visit to observe these giant lizards in their natural habitat.
1. Dive gloves and reef hooks are not permitted within the National Park boundaries.
2. Drone use requires a permit to be obtained in advance, and is prohibited in some areas
On a typical day we offer up to 4 day dives; 3 day dives and a fourth sunset or night dive. The diving day is scheduled as follows:
- Light Breakfast followed by a briefing and Dive 1
- Full Breakfast, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 2
- Lunch, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 3
- Snack relaxation period, briefing and Dive 4, where possible
The itinerary outlined above is an example only and may be subject to change depending on local regulations, guests’ experience, flight schedules*, weather and logistics and is at the Captain’s discretion. Adverse weather, sea conditions and restrictions imposed by the local authorities can affect the Komodo National Park itinerary and play a part in determining which dive sites are visited on each trip.
*Please be advised that domestic flights in Indonesia are often subject to delays, schedule changes and cancellations which can result in missed connections and / or late embarkation. We strongly recommend that you make arrangements to arrive at your itinerary’s start location the day before the embarkation date. Please refer to the Trip Information document and Indonesia Travel FAQs, or contact our reservations team for further advice.
Launched in April 2011, the 40m Indo Siren was built on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi and is handcrafted from ironwood and teak (traditional to the area). You will find no other diving liveaboard as beautiful in Indonesian waters, and being built by divers for divers, you can rest assured that every need has been thought of and addressed.
Welcoming a maximum of 16 guests per trip ensures that there is ample space to relax. The 8 cabins are comprised of 2 fixed doubles, 2 flexible twin/doubles and 4 fixed twins, all offering air-conditioning and private en-suite bathrooms with hot water
