With a maximum of just 10 guests on board this liveaboard, the Moana offers you an escape from big groups and guarantees plenty of individual attention in a variety of dive crew languages. This compact Phinisi schooner has 5 air conditioned cabins all with ensuite showers. The boat may be less than enormous, but is modern and perfectly formed and is a great boat for individuals, groups or families to see the best of Komodo dive region.

Moana is ideal for those looking for an affordable and short Komodo diving adventure. The tours encompass all the best dive sites of the area plus a walk with the famous Komodo dragons, while all the time you are looked after by the attentive and friendly crew.

Moana departs from Labuan Bajo in Flores, just a short hop to Komodo. Flores is reached by a quick domestic flight from Bali. The proximity to the best dive sites means no long cruises across open seas. Unlike some of the other Indonesia liveaboard charters, with the Moana you will be scuba diving in Komodo just a few hours after boarding!
