Indonesia liveaboard, Moana in Komodo
View Video Gallery Bookmark and Share

With year round 4 night trips, 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!
