Komodo Dive Boat Description
Our Komodo dive boat for the 2018 season is a comfortable, seasoned veteran of Indonesian waters. She is only 3 years old, but has sailed the seas of Eastern Indonesia that whole time. She is very strong, capable and designed to explore the world around us. Updated to modern standards – each bed is designed as a pod with power outlet, LED reading lamp, personal fan and privacy curtain. Cabins are fully air-conditioned and have secure storage for personal gear.
Not too fancy, not too cheap….just right!
Small groups and more than diving
Rather than pack on dozens of divers – we always keep things small! With only 14 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. After having this boat for a few months, we are currently upgrading all the cabins, dining and dive area. The pictures here are before her upgrades (new photos around February 2018)
Komodo Dive Boat Accommodation
The accommodation is in individual privacy bunks. Each bunk has it’s own power and lights, as well as security area. Privacy curtains and sound-insulated walls makes for great comfort and serenity. She also sports several bathrooms throughout the boat. Special requests for upper or lower suites are subject to availability.
We have 4 Twin Berth cabins and a single (1) Six Berth cabin. Our twin and 6 berth cabins are all fitted with the sleeping pods for each guest comfort. All cabins have their own air conditioner and an opening sea view window. Each of our cabins has 220v plug sockets in the cabin as well as in the pods, so you can charge your battery packs or your dive torch.
The wheel house (captains quarters) can be found in the middle of the boat with the main dining area located just in front, where you can help yourself with coffee, tea, toast, water, electrolyte drinks and fresh fruit which is always on the table for your convenience.
