wonderful trip

Mario's 20 years experience in Komodo put us in the right place at the right time. Varied diving: walls, coral gardens, drifts, night dives. New terrain fish and critters every dive. Roni's smile and humour, efficient crew and well maintained gear. Food was too good. Put on weight despite 4 dives a day. Moana is beamier than other traditional boats and we didn't roll as much as other boats moored near us, slept well. Chris Australia 800+ dives.

Unique experience combined with a incredible crew!

The crew was fantastic and took care of us really well. The food was delicious and the portion enormous, you won’t get hungry! The boat is well maintained and has enough space for the guests! The manager is so knowledgeable of the area and always find the perfect spot at the perfect time to dive! Overall it was an unique experience and couldn’t have dreamt better (or maybe a bit longer !)

Exploring komodo aboard the Moana!

This was my first liveaboard trip and I can't help feel like I got spoilt by the awesome Moana and its crew. The ship was beautiful with larger than expected rooms, the chef was insanely good and the food was probably the best I had in Indonesia - yes on a boat. The dive sites were phenomenal with tons of wildlife and visibility (and currents). The crew took care of all the guests even catering to specific dietary needs. Some core memories and friends were made in this trip. I loved the small Group size of 10 with a family vibe. I can't help but feel like other liveaboards might be ruined now because of my time with the Moana!
