Komodo Diving Liveaboard & Activities

Komodo is not only a diving and snorkeling paradise, the beauty of its underwater treasures is comparable to the wonders of its rugged landscape. Throughout each and every Komodo diving liveaboard we organize excursions, from beautiful secluded beaches such as Pink Beach, to hiking up spectacular panoramic view points on Padar Island, and of course visiting Komodo or Rinca islands for spotting the Komodo dragons.

2 Kayaks will be also available if you wish to explore the surroundings in between itineraries.

All the diving activities are included in your Komodo diving liveaboard package and most dives will take place during the day. However, night dives are also conducted where and if possible considering Komodo’s rapid changing underwater conditions.

PADI courses are not available at this moment and so we require all divers to have a minimum certification of PADI Open Water certification and 50 logged dives or PADI Advanced Open Water certification and 25 logged dives.

Please be advised that all dives during our Komodo diving liveaboard are planned and executed with mandatory safety stops. It is mandatory for all divers to use a dive computer, observe safety stops and stay well within the dive computer limits.

The first dive of the trip is always a check-dive during which we can also perform refreshers if necessary.

Before each dive, our guides will provide a detailed briefing about the site topography, sites of interest, current conditions as well as safety recommendations and procedures.

On dive sites, where strong currents are expected, and prior to entering the water, the dive guides will check the direction and strength of the current. They will determine whether to continue or change the dive plan if conditions are deemed unsafe or potentially dangerous.


Due to the remoteness of our cruise destinations, it is mandatory for all divers to have a DAN or another dive insurance which covers injuries, emergency evacuation and treatment in a hyperbaric chamber.

In addition, we strongly recommend all our guests to have a Health and Travel/Cancellation insurance.

If for any reason divers are not able to join the trip due to unexpected circumstances such as last minute flight cancellations, delayed flights, etc. we will support with all necessary documentation for insurance claims. Refunds and reschedules do not apply and will not be honored.


Snorkelers are very welcome aboard our Komodo diving liveaboard!

Most of the dive sites offer amazing snorkeling, and even when the divers explore a deep reef, snorkeling activities can be organized ad hoc.

All snorkelers will be accompanied in the water by experienced snorkeling guides.

Please, note that all non-divers/snorkelers are entitled to a 10% discount on the cabin rates.
