The Komodo Dancer LiveAboard visits dive sites between Bali Indonesia and The Komodo National Park Indonesia, part of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Any time of the year this area of Indonesia offers good diving. Visibility may vary from season to season but 10 to 30 meters (35 to 100 ft.) can be expected at most dive sites.
Komodo Dancer offers 11 Day/10 Night Komodo
+liveaboard cruises featuring an enhanced itinerary that allows guests more time diving, more time in the signature area of the Komodo National Park and an opportunity to explore the newly discovered area of the Sangeang Islands Indonesia. To achieve this, each sailing of the Komodo Dancer LiveAboard will be a one way cruise that will either begin in Bali and end in Komodo National Park or will begin in Komodo National Park and end in Bali.
Many of our guests are avid photographers who like nothing more than hunting out weird and wonderful critters on the reef and sand. As part of the newly expanded Komodo itinerary we have added two locations to the west of the Komodo National Park – Sangeang Indonesia, an island volcano to the north of East Sumbawa and Bima Bay Indonesia, an inlet that meanders down to Bima town on Sumbawa. There are two specific sites in both of these areas that are producing a dazzling array of rare creepy crawlies on a regular basis – “Estuary” on Sangeang and “Fuzzy Bottom” at the entrance to Bima Bay.
Vibrant local cultures, Komodo Dragons, colorful coral reefs and abundant marine life are perfectly paired with superior accommodations and a professional, attentive crew to make Indonesia and the Komodo Dancer LiveAboard the ideal choice for diving adventure in the Pacific.
Welcome the Alor Islands
Come experience the allure of Alor, a cluster of small volcanic islands located just east of Flores Island in southern Indonesia on the itinerary we call “East of Flores”. Your
Alor liveaboard diving adventure begins in Maumere, the capital of Flores where the elegant, two masted, wooden Komodo Dancer will meet you. Climb aboard to explore the best of these fauna-rich waters in the Flores Sea. Exciting diving is possible e year round!
This 10-night cruise on board the Komodo Dancer will explore the chain of islands between Flores and Alor, deep into what is called East Nusa Tenggara. Crystal clear visibility, exciting drifts along sheer walls, dazzling coral gardens and some magnificent sandy critter dives combine to house one of the most prolific and diverse marine ecosystems on earth. “East Flores” and the Alor area are now firmly on the map of must see places for divers wanting to experience something exciting, new and out of the ordinary.
This is what we call “pioneer diving” where we go way off the beaten track of the underwater world. There is hardly any tourism infrastructure in these parts – and that is what makes this a perfect liveAboard itinerary because we bring everything with us!. The Komodo Dancer is your self contained “resort” providing the creature comforts and service associated with a Dancer Fleet voyage while utilizing her mobility to expand our explorations into this rarely visited area.
