That’s the sound of our Cruise Director going for the usual morning wake up round on the boat. At 06:45 and the boat is softly rocking with the waves of the ocean and you know you’re about to experience the best diving in Indonesia.
The first thing we do in the morning is gather around the breakfast table to have our first dive briefing. There’s something totally magical about jumping into the ocean early in the morning to enjoy the marine life!
During the morning dive on our budget liveaboard, our chef will prepare a big breakfast with pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs, toast and a fruit platter for us to enjoy when we come back to the dive boat. After breakfast we get relax a while before going for our second dive at another stunning dive site in Komodo National Park.
The main routine on the boat is pretty much diving, eating, relaxing and sleeping. So, after some freshly cooked lunch you have a longer surface interval where you can choose to read a book, exchange diving memories with your buddy or take a nap either in the shade or on the sundeck.
Our dive boat is perfect to just relax in a bean bag, overlooking the stunning views of Komodo National Park.
When we feel ready, it’s time to go diving again. Diving in Komodo is unique, there’s no other place like it, and the landscape is equally amazing, some days we’ll even go on land excursions in the morning or afternoon, there are numerous islands and beaches to visit.
The evenings onboard mostly consist of delicious food (both western & local favourites), sunset watching & maybe a beer or two with a game of cards.
After a full day of diving has taken its toll, the guests are often tired and will go to bed for a good night’s sleep before doing this fantastic schedule over again.
