This is the one!

Highlights were the incredible diving experiences in the dive sites. From seeing so much life underwater to chillin and sharing stories on the boat makes every second very memorable. Thank you very much Mikumba Diving!

The food was amazing. Thank you Chef. The attention to detail with the crew of setting up gear and making sure everything is in proper working order was very assuring. The dive guides are experts in everything Komodo. Amazing experience overall!

Couldn't recommend more!

The crew set a really friendly and warm tone on the boat and were so helpful in every way. The food was excellent and plentiful. We adapted to the weather and currents to ensure we had the best dives possible. I have done 4 liveaboards, and this was my favorite experience yet! I would go back to Mikuma Diving for sure. Special thanks to Salla and Hans!

Budget but with big advantages

The Boatvand crew make it easy to fall in love with Liveaboards. The food was good and plentiful and you will never go hungry. Good that you have 3 dives in-between. The dive conditions were not ideal (off season) but we made the best out of it. I wished my divemaster pointed out a little bit more, as well as little interaction other then diving. But the people on board make up for it und little secret: book the sleeping deck above under the stars. It's great at night, more space and cooler.

Une expérience inoubliable avec un excellent rapport qualité prix

Nous étions un groupe de quatre personnes sur Live aboard. Une équipage attentionné toujours prête a nous aider. La nourriture est excellente, surtout les beignets aux bananes :-) Notre guide Sardyn était au top, les briefings avant les plongées étaient juste et précise et Salla instructeurs de plongée responsable et coordonatriste avait une rigueur sur la sécurité en plongée tout en étant cool et relax. J’ai eu coup de coeur a dormir sur le pont supérieur.

unforgettable 3 days with a great crew, delicious food and fantastic animal encounters

we did the 3D/2N trip and it was so amazing from beginning to the end!!! the crew and all the guides were very nice, they helped you everytime you needed it and tried to make the best trip for everyone on the boat. they also cared to put the diving groups as good as possible together so that the ones with better air consumption could stay longer underwater:)) the food was very delicious and they also offer very good vegetarian options:) the breefings were really good with informative facts about the diving places and the currents and they really cared about everyones safety and fun! we were so lucky we saw mantas on two dives, many sharks, nice schools of fish of all kind and even dolphins on our last dive!🥳 the visit on rinca island was so amazing too, we went there early morning right when the park opened and when the komodo dragons were the most active. we were lucky there too and saw three dragons eating the meat off a buffalos skull! would definetly recommend this trip and hope to dive sometime again in the waters of the komodo national park🦈🐬🦎

Unbelievable diving experience

I spent 4 days and 3 nights on board the Nusantara with Mikumbu Diving and the whole experience was perfect from start to finish. The boat and crew were all excellent, and my dive guide Hans, was brilliant. All the dives were really well briefed, I loved the little dive site drawings on the white board, and felt safe on all the dives. The land based trips for the Komodo dragons and a sunset walk were also really great additions. The food was class, really above my expectations of what was possible to prepare on a little boat, and various dietary requirements for people on board were all catered for well. The sleeping cabin is on the cosy side, but after a day of diving its perfectly possible to sleep well, there are portholes to let fresh, cooler air in. There's a nice spot on top with bean bags to chill out on, or an area below for some shade. The equipment was all pretty new and in very good condition. And the dive sites are world class!

One of the most amazing experience of my life

By far was the highest point of my 24 days trip around Indonesia. And I would say one of the best tours I have ever made around the 28 countries I had been. The divings were amazing, the crew very friendly, the visual always breathtaking. I totally recommend it.
