Good diving, good staff but dusty cabin
Diving in Komodo National Park is fun and adventure. Good visibility underwater generally. As my trip was during full moon, currents were really strong sometimes. It's good experience though quite harsh. Thanks to our dive guide Wayan and the other crews for the support during the trip! Special thanks to Tony for his proactive assistance for diving preparation before dive briefing! Food is generally okay though a bit too sweet and salty for me. Cabins should be cleaned thoroughly before guest embarkation.

- We sailed in November during full moon and experience ever changing currents and otherwise perfect weather.Dive site on south and central route present reefs full of marine life from macro to mantas and sharks. Dive guides Wayan and Paldy were helpful spotting rare camouflaged critters we would never see without their eagle eyes! Nusatara is as advertised, older but reasonably equipped and maintained, everything is in working order .Comfortable cabins with AC and private en-suite. Crew is attentive and helpful, good food with something for everyone. Land excursions to Rinca Island is added bonus on last day of the trip.Truly memorable trip.
