Save £1,800pp on a liveaboard trip to Komodo National Park



The vast Komodo National Park is one of Indonesia’s most iconic and exciting dive areas, and is best dived by liveaboard to fully appreciate the area’s riches. Dive Worldwide is offering incredible savings of £1,800pp on trips aboard the Indo Aggressor when booked by 21 August 2019.

The Indo Aggressor is a beautiful, traditionally crafted phinisi that offers a touch of luxury in the National Park. It sleeps just 16, and each of the cabins is air conditioned and has a private bathroom. With a staff of 17, each guest is fully looked after on with facilities including a sun deck and entertaining salon, a trip aboard the Indo Aggressor promises to be unforgettable both beneath the waves and topside. Photographers, too, are well catered for with camera table and charging station.

Komodo National Park was officially declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991 and remains one of the largest protected zones on the planet. A liveaboard is, without doubt, the best way of exploring the Park, allowing unrivalled access to the three major islands; Komodo, Rinca and Padar , but the countless  smaller ones too. Only on these legendary islands do Komodo dragons, survivors of the prehistoric carnivores that thrived in tropical Asia some 100 million years ago, still live and roam freely.

The waters offer an incredible diversity or marine life with more than 1,000 species of fish, 385 species of reef building corals, 70 species of sponges, 10 dolphin species, 6 whale species, giant sea turtles, dugongs, and various species of sharks and rays. There are over 50 dive sites to explore, varying from colourful shallow coral gardens to fast flowing drift dives along the walls, pinnacles rising from the deep and calm conditions in the bays where macro life is prolific in the volcanic sands.

Special Offer Price (Boat only): from £1,800pp based on 2 sharing (SAVING £1,800pp), including 10 nights’ FB accommodation on liveaboard, 9 days diving (34 dives), tanks and weights with Dive Worldwide (, 01962 302 087). Depart 26 August and 9 September 2019. 7 night itinerary departing 1 October also available.

Booking deadline: 21 August 2019.
