The Indonesia liveaboard, Komodo Dancer at Sumbawa

With a choice of 3 standards of en-suite cabin, you'll soon discover that touch of service class that sets the Dancer Fleet diving cruises apart - just turn up at the dive deck in your wet suit and let the staff take care of the rest. A local crew, trained to international standards of service, will make your Indonesia liveaboard cruise one to remember. You'll even get a warm towel and back rub after each dive!

A traditional style 38 metre long sailing yacht, but with a nitrox membrane filling system and EANx diving certifications available too, Komodo Dancer is for serious scuba divers too.

There is so much space on board this liveaboard that you can always find a quiet corner to share with someone or just to be by yourself to work on tanning those white bits. With a complimentary glass of wine with dinner, there is normally a great atmosphere on board, so the Komodo Dancer's tours score highly not only in terms of comfort and style but also the après-dive experience.
