Nearly all our staff are diving and boat experts from the area. All of us love to share our passion for these rich seas: you will dive with hundreds of species of fish and corals and the vast pristine reefs. It is the unusual trip where our guests don’t experience passing pelagic like manta rays and sharks, amazing critters and much more. We live and work in the park: Wicked Diving focuses on preserving and protecting our home. Join us in exploring this amazing place.
Wicked Diving has been proudly operating our own liveaboards for more than 13 years. We are not agents – we operate our own liveaboard. Remember that we live here and we will be diving with you. At all points of your Komodo journey, it is obvious that we care deeply about your experience. Every step possible is taken to assure that you, our reefs and communities are protected and safe. You will find that we take responsibility for your experience from the first email until long after you leave. As such, Wicked Diving is far more concerned that you have a great time and enjoy your time than we are to try and sell you any trip we can. Our focus is YOU!
Wicked Diving is absolutely committed to to working in and protecting our local communities. We dedicate 2% of all revenue towards training programs that work with local schools. We cooperate to train local dive guides, snorkel guides and administrative staff. You are directly benefiting these communities when you book with us – and you will dive with many of the graduates of this program! Experience first hand what a positive impact your dive trip makes 🙂
If you think we are just blowing bubbles: 5 star rated on Tripadvisor and consistently positive feedback. We have had our Fourth straight year of “Certificate of Excellence” awarded again in 2016, 2017, 2018 AND 2019

We try to assure the comfort of all our guests equally. If you have dietary restrictions – we must be notified of this before your arrival. Due to the remote location and nature of the trips – we can not guarantee that they can be met. In many cases we are happy to prepare meals and food stuffs that are brought on the boat and we recommend purchasing these in Bali or the in locations with a far larger selection of food stuffs
Due to our remoteness, the activities we undertake and, most importantly, the well-being of our guests – we have strict policies regarding health and safety on our liveaboards. If someone suffers from severe allergies or conditions – we must strongly urge you to re-consider your options for joining these trips. The medical facilities are minimal and evacuation to the nearest major hospital (Bali) can take 12-24 hours in good conditions. Please learn more about these
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. Our very experienced guides choose dive sites, times and even locations to make sure each dive is safe and suitable. And with more than 100 dive sites, it’s never a bother to move on to the next one!
We do mandate that every guests have recent diving experience (less than 1 year ago) before joining the Komodo Liveaboards. In some places this is called a “Refresher” or a “scuba tune-up”.if not, we will require a “scuba tune-up” or refresher before your first dive….believe us, the trip will be soooo much more fun! Did you know you can easily do an Advanced Course while on the trip? The cost is a bargain and the opportunity priceless!
