Dive Resort providing guests with day trips catering to different levels and styles of diving, flexible liveaboard, PADI courses taught by multilingual instructors, the only purpose-built training pool in town, accommodation options for different budgets, and a restaurant serving delicious meals all the while offering world class views and spectacular sunsets.
Komodo is the place where you’ll find adventure diving amidst some of the best biodiversity in the world and trekking with the world’s largest living lizard.
If you have the time, the best way to experience Komodo National Park is by liveaboard. It is the ultimate combination of world-class diving and Jurassic Park-style adventure featuring volcanoes, uninhabited islands, Komodo dragons, dolphins cruising alongside, spectacular sunsets and tranquil star-filled nights.
Liveaboard IKAN BIRU is perfect if the idea of “dive, eat, sleep, repeat” appeals to you. Its unique hop-on, hop-off concept allows you to join other divers as you explore the park for any amount of time between three and twelve days. Each full day on Ikan Biru sees at least 3 dives, often more. Make new friends as you log some serious time underwater, sleep under the stars, and see Komodo’s best.

Boasting a spacious upper deck, Ikan Biru is fitted for maximum 8 guests to relax, dine and sleep under the stars in absolute comfort. Serving as a cushion filled lounge during the day, at night the crew convert the upper deck into open-air sleeping with comfortable mattresses and bedding. The two below-deck guest bathrooms are stocked with all necessary toiletries and hot freshwater showers. Ikan Biru is equipped with a fully stocked kitchen with two fridge/freezers, beer/wine cooler and gas cook top/oven. Jos, our onboard chef is a pro in that space and even serves freshly made bread each morning. We are happy to cater for various dietary restrictions upon request. Ikan Biru is equipped with modern marine safety equipment and an exceptionally experienced sailing & dive crew per marine tourism guidelines.
Departures to embark on liveaboard, Ikan Biru are scheduled in advance and made once every 3 days using either our small speedboat Simon, or one of our dayboats. Ikan Biru, runs on a rolling schedule with a unique, “hop off” concept. This means that you decide how long to stay (with a minimum of 3 nights) and when to disembark, effortlessly whisking you from the liveaboard using either of our dayboats. You are guaranteed a minimum of 3 dives per night booked. Ikan Biru is an ‘advanced certification only’ boat that provides guests with the opportunity to dive the best spots in the park at optimal tides. This means you are sure to go to Manta Point at the best times for mantas and hit The Cauldron on a fast falling tide to experience the ultimate adrenaline rush. We ensure guests get a minimum of 3 dives per night booked, but you might find that full days on the boat allow time for up to 4!
With the 3 nights minimum stay, we ensure that you can visit both the Komodo dragons at Pulau Rinca and the north side of the park as these attractions are on opposite sides of the park. We only take advanced certified divers, but we do offer the advanced course onboard as a special package for just an additional IDR 3.200.000 (approx. USD 243) per person. Drift, Deep, Night, Fish ID, Underwater Photography or Nitrox theory specialities are available upon request.

If you would like to explore Komodo National Park while remaining land-based, day trips are the perfect way to do so. We have three day boats, HUGO, TOBY and SIMON, all equipped with modern marine safety equipment and extremely experienced crew in accordance with marine tourism guidelines. On all boats, we never exceed the ratio of 4 divers to 1 guide (always a certified divemaster or instructor). All equipment is excellently maintained Aqualung gear, most of it brand new. Our regulators are equipped with an SPG and it is possible to request one with a depth gauge. Though not all of our regulators have depth gauges, we do offer guests the option of renting Suunto dive computers for just IDR 100.000/day. Prices on Hugo and Toby are inclusive of gear rental, snacks, food & beverage on board and towels. They do not include Komodo National park fees which are currently:
IDR 275.000/day Mon-Sat or IDR 350.000/day on Sundays bank holidays. For non-diving members of your party who would like to join and snorkel for the day, we charge IDR 700.000 to spend the day on either boat.
You came all this way and can’t forget the dragons!!!! The Komodo Dragon (varanus Komodoensis) is the world’s largest living monitor lizard and is indigenous to Komodo, Rinca and Padar Islands. Spend the second half of your day trekking around Rinca to get a glimpse of these prehistoric creatures. Your wildlife adventure isn’t limited to dragons; buffalo, Rusu deer, monkeys, pigs and horses are also commonly present. Further down the scale, indigenous frogs, snakes and lizards abound on the island, not to forget the aptly named endemic Flores Rat. As you near the end of your trek, take in the scenery with a breathtaking panoramic view of the national park.
We offer this combined trip on our speedboat. We visit Rinca, as this island allows for a much better chance of seeing the Komodo dragons due to the presence of the ranger station. It is up to your group to decide on the short trek (1 hour) or medium trek (1.5 hours). We will take care of all your trekking fees. However, we recommend bringing a bit of cash on land for beverages, souvenirs, and of course tipping your lovely ranger.
