Detailed information about your selected cruise ship!
Our “Komodo Liveaboard Diving Cruise on the Adelaar has to be the finest way to travel to Komodo. Our signature round trip cruises depart every other Monday from Bali, and travel to Komodo with a return to Bali. We pride ourselves in being the experts of Komodo Liveaboard diving, as we have been sailing this unique maritime route for over two decades.

However varied your dive experience, our full service dive center and team will be ready to meet your needs, to ensure your Komodo diving experience is personally tailored and one to remember.
