Komodo Live aboard Cruises

Komodo. The lure of the unexplored is irresistible, so embark on a journey in a real life "Jurassic Park" above and below the surface of the seas. These are the Lesser Sunda Islands of Indonesia, one of the last frontiers of the underwater world, boasting some of the finest dive sites imaginable.

 

The “Ombak Biru” sails 7 and 11-night dive live aboard cruises year round. Our on-board dive operation runs the most sophisticated air and nitrox system available. Our experienced crew and dive masters deliver you to the breathtaking dive sites. After your dive it's back on board to our trademark hot towels and hot showers!

 

 Most of your dives will be in the Komodo National Park Reserve, an area playing host to more than 1,100 species of fish such as jacks, mantas and the occasional whale shark.

 

 

 Most world-class diving sites are usually formed by either unusual volcanic formations of undersea rock or by massive amounts of limestone (coral) deposits.

 


The dive areas of Indonesia that we visit are blessed with both!


 

Between the islands are vast unexplored coral reefs teeming with unusual tropical reef fish. With a careful eye, even the most experienced fish watcher will discover hundreds of new species of brilliantly colored reef fish.

Plus an astounding array of invertebrates, some of which have never even been properly identified!

 

Whether you are ripping along the top of a sea mount on a current dive, poking around in the shallows late in the day or night, or visiting the islands on a topside adventure in search of the famous Komodo Dragons, Indonesia is calling!!

 

The on-board dive operation of the Ombak Biru has been painstakingly put together to enable you to discover the thrilling diving that the Komodo region has to offer. From our state of the art gas compression systems to high end scuba training, the Ombak Biru has it all!

 

Courses: We are equipped to teach many of the PADI and TDI scuba courses and many specialites too. Due to our location, destinations and the equipment that we have on board we highly recommend our Photographic and Video programs as well as our Nitrox/EANx courses.

 

The “Ombak Biru” was constructed in 2001. She is built and rigged as a traditional Buginese schooner but with all modern conveniences to make sure you are safe and comfortable during your dive liveaboard cruise.
