Our trip was 4 days and 3 nights, and at the end of it, I really didn’t want to leave! From the moment we joined the boat, we were made to feel like part of the family – everyone was introduced to us before we even left the harbour, even though they were busy trying to take us out to the Komodo National Park, they had time to meet the guests and welcome us to our home for the next few days, “Ratu Pelangi” – which we found out means Rainbow Queen.
Each day we did 3 or 4 dives, even managing to get in 2 night dives on our trip – don’t worry too much if you’ve never done one before though, there’s always an instructor on the boat to teach the less experienced people, and they have things set up so you can even take a PADI course, like Nitrox or the Advanced course as a couple of people managed to get certified on our trip. It’s definitely worth doing the PADI course in Komodo as it’s famous for its currents.
For certain nobody went hungry, and they catered to all tastes, even providing vegan pancakes made with coconut milk – they really did make an effort for everyone which is quite surprising seeing they are one of the cheapest liveaboards in Komodo.
