Komodo Shalom Liveaboard Description
The Komodo Shalom Liveaboard is the newest member of the Wicked Diving fleet. Operating from September 1st, 2018 she is a comfortable, seasoned veteran of Indonesian waters. While only 13 years old, she has explored 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 has been designed as a “sleep pod” with individual 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 far more than diving
Rather than pack on dozens of divers – we always keep things small! With only 16 guests, we can cater to your needs…as well as reduce our impact on dive sites.
We make plenty of time for non-diving activities, ranging from site-seeing on the Islands to Beach and reef clean-ups. There is plenty of room for the social guests, and places for privacy on the sundecks, cabins, dining areas…something fro almost everyone!
Komodo Dive Boat Accommodation
The accommodation is in personal privacy bunks. Each bunk has its 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 hot water bathrooms throughout the boat. Special requests for upper or lower suites are subject to availability.
We have 4 Twin Berth cabins and a large single (1) Eight Berth cabin. Our twin and 8 berth cabins are all fitted with the sleeping pods for each guest comfort. All cabins are air conditioned and with sea view windows. 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) is 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.
