Komodo Dive Boat Description
Our Komodo dive boat for the 2017 season is a comfortable,seasoned veteran of Indonesian waters. She is only 14 years old, but has sailed the seas the whole time. From surfing safaris along the West coast of remote Sumatra to the Mergui Archipelago of Myanmar all the way to Eastern Indonesia of Papua. She is very strong, capable and designed to explore the world around us.
Designed from the keel up as a sailing schooner using traditional methods that have served the Bugis people of South Sulawesi for centuries. This is all done by hand over the course of 18 months.
Small groups and more than diving
Rather than pack on dozens of divers – we always keep things small! With only 10 guests, we can cater to your needs…as well as reduce our impact on dive sites. No crowds in the water here!
We make plenty of time for non-diving activities, ranging from site-seeing on the Islands to Beach and reef clean-ups. We’ve even been known to break out the BBQ and enjoy a sunset on the beach when the time is right!
