3 Day Komodo Liveaboard Diving
3 Day liveaboard through the Komodo Islands Marine Reserve
For the diver who wants to experience the Komodo National Park, our 3 Day Komodo Liveaboard Diving adventure offers you the perfect schedule! Take time to see many of the dive sites, the beaches and to enjoy this World Heritage site. We offer two distinct 3 Day Liveaboards each week. On Friday we depart for a diving only journey and each Monday we do a 3 day trip that includes a Komodo Dragon walk, but one less dive.
Manta Ray Research on our Komodo Liveaboard
During the months of July and August we conduct Manta Ray research tours. These trips focus on the dive sites where we encounter Manta Rays most frequently - There all our guests and staff document the encounters, through photo and video and we collect all our data on the encounters - adding these to a global database of encounters. This database helps track that actual numbers of Mantas as well as their migratory pattern and is used to help CITES and other organizations in thier research. In addition we have lectures and presentations about Manta Rays. Each guest will also get a unique Manta Ray/Eco-diver certification for joining these trips. When joining these trips you not only contribute to the increasing awareness of these species - but also contributing directly to conservation efforts. These special trips depart every Friday in July and August and are only $780 per person.
Why Komodo Diving?
Wicked Diving is proud to present one of the most famous dive sites in the world - Komodo Islands. Featuring some of the most exotic and diverse environments on earth! From the giant lizards on the beaches to the vast reefs underwater. Our 3 Day Komodo Liveaboard brings a whole new ethos to a region filled with super-luxury boats and decrepit backpacking "boats". We will be operating with a constant emphasis on Low-impact and Safety-Focused dive operations, we offer our guests the same high standards we operate on with in Thailand. Tell me more right now!
Your Safety is our first priority on our Boats! We only scuba dive in small groups and have plenty of surface interval in between dives. There are thorough briefings before each dive and an extensive marine safety and environmental briefing at the start of the trip. Your Komodo Liveaboard is not just about being safe. Our staff is not only very experienced and safety orientated, they also love to have a laugh and often we end up doing all kind of games in the evening when the diving is done.
With small groups and our boat designed and built in the shipyards of Sulawesi, our 3 Day Komodo Liveaboard combines adventure, ecologically aware operations, incredible staff and of course...great diving! Check out the Komodo Liveaboard Schedule
Komodo Liveaboard Diving = World-Class Diving
The diving in Komodo is considered among the best in the world, with its remote location, vibrant reefs and incredible marine life - Komodo diving is a truly memorable experience. The Islands may seem barren and brown due to the infrequent rains and unique micro-climate. With the famous Komodo Dragons roaming the beaches many people already know these islands already, but don't overlook the 150+ species of birds, Buffalo, Monkeys, pigs and dozens more species. Please bear in mind that we only include the Komodo Dragon walk on our Monday departures
Under the water, guests on our 3 Day Komodo Liveaboard may experience passing pelagics like Manta Rays and Sharks, amazing critters and a rich diversity of marine life. At some of the Komodo dive sites, the currents can be challenging, the water can vary from warm to quite cool and even the waves and surface currents can make these dive sites seem daunting - but it is definitely worth it. For these reasons, please choose a reputable dive operator with an eye to safety and sensible diving. Tell me more right now!
There was some damage to the reefs from dynamite fishing in years long past, but as the Komodo National Park was established and rules enforced, the reefs have recovered and conditions are very good bordering on great. The Komodo National Park is often held up as a role model of Responsible tourism practices. the fees you pay for entrance to the Komodo Park all contribute to the protection and maintenance of the park. If you would like to know a bit more about our departure point - Labuan Bajo. Also check out the Komodo Liveaboard Schedule.

These trips tend to favor the intermediate and advanced divers. However, we often had guests on one trip decide to stay on again and join the next trip (if there were spaces available) - so don't be surprised if you change your travel plans!
Wicked Diving always works in small groups. With only 4 divers per guide - you will feel the personal touch. In fact, you may be surprised at how many of our guests decide to do extra training because they feel so confident. On the boat you can find other guests doing their Advanced Course!
Komodo Liveaboard Diving Safety
With safety features you'd expect on huge luxury liveaboards (large life raft, radar, satellite phone) and amenities you'll never find on a budget liveaboard in Indonesia - (20 sets of brand new gear that is serviced annually, brand new compressors, LED lighting) we are not sure if we are "cheap luxury" or "fancy budget"? I guess you might say we are "just right!" The 3 Day Komodo Liveaboard tours are great fun, reasonably priced and offer you the rare chance to visit all the best dive sites at one go.
