The Komodo Sea Dragon is a 38mtr/125ft long liveaboard in Indonesia.

Aboard the main vessel, guest cabins are located on the upper and main decks, with plenty of natural light and breathtaking ocean views. There are 8 sun loungers on the upper deck, as well as a relaxation area that can be converted into an outdoor dining area. The bar, library and audio/video entertainment are in the air-conditioned lounge, by the outdoor bar, all located on the main deck.

The Komodo Sea Dragon’s 7 days/6 nights itinerary takes guests to some of the best spots in Indonesia, where guests have the chance to see amazing marine life and the legendary Komodo dragon. The adventure starts on Padar Island, for diving and snorkeling around the beautiful reefs. From there, the boat will move on to South Komodo, where guests will explore more of the amazing underwater world. The last stop on the itinerary is Komodo Island, home to the famous Komodo dragons. Here, guests will have the chance to see these impressive creatures up close.

Great boat and service, wonderful dives

It was great to be able to see a lot of Mantas during the dives in the south. The main dives in the north had to be canceled and replaced with less interesting ones due to the currents that are too strong close to full moon or black moon so be mindful of the effect of the moon on the currents and the implications for your trips. Double check you gear (all of it) if you rent at the beginning and check the bill when you have to pay as they will not propose the best deal (e.g. if you dont rent the full equipment but just bring one item , you may end up paying much more by being charged for each individual item you rent). The team is friendly. It happened that an instructor during the dive sometimes do not pay enough attention to the diver, so dont take safety for granted.

Friendly and attentive staff.

Overall experience is good. The only reason why I did not give it a 5 star would be that the dive equipment provided was not checked well before.

Fantastic LiveAboard with a great and friendly staff

All from the many Mantas to the weird craps during night dives - overall Komodo is a great place to dive, and the ship and crew of Sea Dragon was excellent ... highly recommended!

Very nice typical Indonesian boat

The rooms are big and confortables.  The Chef makes great food. Bonne and Allan are so caring and attentive to what we like or not, it's a pleasure! About the dives, they are very looking for safety. Tides and currents make it difficult to plan. In April, visibility isn't great (10 to 15 meters max) but there is no one on the dive sites and we've had a great weather. Arjon, our diving guide, is such a good guide! His eyes can see macro and he helped when I was in difficulties with the current. Anyway, it's a great crew.  Thanks for this trip into Komodo National Park!

Great Diving in Komodo

Very professional operator, guests will be taken care for from the moment they will be picked up at the airport (or hotel) until they leave. Knowledgeable guides will show you all the best dive sites Komodo National Park has to offer. Lots of Manta Rays, but also Eagle Rays and Reef Sharks and a lot of critters, too. Food was good and cabins spacious and spotless clean. The balcony is a big bonus. We did not use the sun-deck because the synthetic-leather covered deck-chairs were either all wet (due to the rain) or burning hot (due to the sun). All 12 crew members were professional and helpful at all times. Trip is highly recommended.

The best liveaboard I have ever been on!

The diving is was beautiful, the food was absolutely amazing. The crew were just the best. Real luxury! Always offered tea or coffee, even between dives. Someone always opening doors and helping you with whatever you needed. I will definitely book this boat again next time I come to Komodo. If you want a real luxury dive experience, look no where else. If Jello and his team are on board, you are going to have the best diving you can get in Indonesia.

The crew were just amazing. The dive guides were some of the most experienced I have ever met, with over 20 years experience between them (Jello, Engel and Arjun). The safety and the diving were top notch, before you realised you needed help, someone was there already sorting you out!
