Komodo liveaboard, the WAOW
View Video Gallery Bookmark and Share

This brand new 3-masted boat can accommodate up to 18 divers in en-suite cabins for dream liveaboard cruises around the Indonesia archipelago including Komodo, Alor, and Raja Ampat. All the cabins are generous in size and come equipped with their own lounge area and entertainment system.

There are several communal areas for relaxing between dives including a restaurant and bar, lounge with TV and music facilities, free Wi-Fi internet (email and WhatsApp) facilities, and dedicated camera room with computer system. There are also 2 sun decks equipped with loungers and 2 shaded seating areas for sunbathing, relaxing with a cool drink and taking in the breathtaking scenery.

MSY WAOW has been designed especially for scuba divers and is therefore equipped with the latest equipment and facilities for ease of diving. The dive deck is designed for space and comfort and the 3 speed boats are used to accessing the sites and ensure that guests dive in small groups only.

This Komodo liveaboard has state of the art safety equipment to be able to visit the most remote and mystical areas of the Indonesian archipelago on extended expeditions. Every customer is equipped with a Nautilus LifeLine which is a system for the locating of divers in the event they are separated from the chase boat. It has a radio, GPS and MMSI number programmed into the device.

The enthusiastic, friendly tour leaders and guides have years of experience but still remain passionate about scuba diving. WAOW is a great choice for an exclusive, extra special cruise with high-quality, luxury facilities and top-class service.
