The KLM Sea Safari VI liveaboard in Komodo

There are 4 decks for guests to enjoy which creates a lot of space on what is not the largest liveaboard in the area. It is nicely furnished and features good quality entertainment facilities, comfortable relaxation spaces and a spacious dive station. The air conditioned dining room, which features a computer and power points, is on the main deck. The diving station, as with many of the Phinisi schooners is situated on the bow of the main deck with rows of tanks in stations along the starboard and port side.

The open air bar area which, outside of meal times, is one of the main social areas, is on the upper deck toward the stern. It features comfortable seating over the wooden deck and is partially shaded for your comfort. For sun lovers there is a separate sun deck which is a great place to work on your tan or take in the beautiful passing views.

The Sea Safari VI accommodates 20 guests in Deluxe and Standard class double and twin bed cabins, all of which have private bathrooms.
