Experience the magic of diving in Komodo aboard the budget-friendly Salakanagara liveaboard. Built in 2015 and upgraded in 2018, the Salakanagara phinisi offers liveaboard dive trips from 3 to 6-nights. From pygmy seahorses to large numbers of migrating manta rays, diving in Komodo National Park offers something for everyone. Itineraries are available as either 4-day or 7-day cruises departing from Labuan Bajo on a Tuesday or Saturday. Once a month there is also a special dive trip that coincides with the full moon.
