    fantastic diving, lovely crew, food and boat 6 Day / 5 Night Cruise in Komodo National Park, Indonesia in May

    The diving around Komodo is excellent - highly varied with at least one spectacular and unique site per day. Currents can be strong (though we went during a low-current period) so nervous divers may want to check on the moon-phase before booking. The crew are fantastic, including the (very professional and friendly) manager and lead dive-master Mario, the lovely on-deck servers and many more helping out behind the scenes. Food was amazingly good, with a main meal or tasty snack between every dive. The boat Moana is wooden and very pretty, with *loads* of space up on deck for the (max 10) guests to spread out on. Time between dives is so nice and relaxing, sitting reading and watching the many islands slide by. Sleeping up on deck at night was nice, with really clear stars one night. Cabins are very comfortable - quite small, but are all you need, and for the price (which is much less than some other boats serving the region) perfectly fine. Only two minor niggles - would prefer the other dive masters to be a little less "invasive" in poking some of the underwater critters (though it's a little hypocritical of me to say this, as my photos did benefit from that.....) and it might be good to be clearer up front that the Komodo dragon island visit is a little bit rubbish (we just saw a few dragons hanging around the ranger compound toilet......none out in the woods), but then we didn't go primarily for the dragons. Overall - fantastic crew/boat/diving/food, good value for money, and a wonderfully relaxing week.

    Wonderful experience, amazing crew that made us feel pampered and spoiled. 6 Day / 5 Night Cruise in Komodo National Park, Indonesia in April

    Mantas, abundant sea life, healthy corals, nice scenery everywhere, and the food was amazing everyday, to to extent of calling it gourmet. Mario runs a very good crew, everyone was friendly and seemed happy to be working on Moana. There are many options for liveboards out there, but going with Moana was the right choice for us, and will recommend it to others. Also the staff at liveaboard.com has been extremely helpful and supportive throughout the whole process. Thanks to all of you for answering our many, many questions, and for being so helpful! Olivia

    Experienced Guides = excellent trip 6 Day / 5 Night Cruise in Komodo National Park, Indonesia in September

    The dive spots are amazing. Diving with some of the more experienced guides in the Komodo park. Moana dives exclusively in Komodo year round, which means they understand the dive sites, currents and tides that only years of experience diving the area brings. The boat is comfortable and well run. The pacing of the diving is great - we had the opportunity of up to 4 dives on a full day - which on a 6 day dive trip was about right. We also got to experience some of the Komodo National park - seeing the dragons, doing a sunset walk, spending time on a remote beach. Perfect liveaboard - dive and cruise.

    Wonderful cruise around Komodo 6 Day / 5 Night Cruise in Komodo National Park, Indonesia in October

    The cruise was just perfect. Everything well organized, we dived in amazing spots (beautiful coral gardens, a lot of marine life, reef sharks, turtles, mantas, stingrays, snakes). The crew was extremely friendly and helpful, and very familiar with the region. In most of the spots we were alone, no other boats. Moana boat is very comfortable, with a lot of space to chill out. The food is delicious.

    Great diving, great boat and crew, good fun. 6 Day / 5 Night Cruise in Komodo National Park, Indonesia in June

    Being a step ahead of other boats such that the dive experience was second to none. For example, beat the crowds in at a site and were able to watch 3-4 mantas play for 45 mins with no crowd to scare them away.

    Fantastic diving, thriving reefs, amazing staff topped off with Komodo Dragons. 6 Day / 5 Night Cruise in Komodo National Park, Indonesia in March

    Unbelievable experience. The best liveaboard trip I have been on. The crew were brilliant, nothing was too much hassle. The diving was great, never seen so many fish , everything was bigger in Komodo, huge Napoleons. Getting to see the dragons on the walk at the end capped of an unforgettable trip.

    Best guides ever 6 Day / 5 Night Cruise in Komodo National Park, Indonesia in March

    Sightings on dives were amazing, ocean life from big to small. Some super fun drift dives too. We were assigned the guide Sarif, who was simply the most careful, experienced, thorough and thoughtful guide - especially for me as a new diver experiencing strong currents for the first time. Apart from knowing all the good spots to see mantas, baby sharks and such, he would always anticipate the currents, and clip me in with a reef hook even before I knew I needed it! Big kudos also to cruise director Mario for keeping us equal parts prepared with his briefings and regaled with his stories, and to Marcello and Marci with their guitar/singing on the last night. Bonus: really tasty food, with extra portions on hand if requested. Note - The boat is not “5* luxury” (and I don’t mean this in any way as a criticism - you get what you pay for, bearing in mind elevated Komodo prices compared with other regions), though everything is clean and well maintained (most importantly the vessel itself!). What I mean, your ensuite toilets will not have hot water although there is hot water on the main deck shower, you will not have fresh towels everyday, your cabin will be ‘cosy’ in size. But on balance, for Komodo, would definitely dive with Moana for the quality of the staff and guidance.
