Komodo liveaboard, SMY Mangguana

This Komodo liveaboard is 27 metres in length and accommodates up to only 8 guests in 4 double or twin bed cabins with en-suite private bathrooms. With such a small number of guests you are assured of plenty of personal service from the crew of 7, as well as small dive groups.

The lounge and dining area is in the open air on the main deck and features TV, DVD and music system as well as a computer. It is here during meal times and general surface intervals you can enjoy the ever-changing scenery of Komodo and its surrounding islands. On the upper deck there is a partially shaded sun deck which is another popular spot for relaxing and taking in the views.

Nitrox is available and is unlimited for guests diving for 7 days or more. Mangguana is keen to emphasise that it caters to the needs of non-divers as well. Although this is not a luxury option, if time or budget is tight for you then this could be a great Komodo diving tour choice.
