Mikumba Magic at it's finest

In Komodo National Park we always try to mix up the dive sites to get more variety, including going North for the current at some of our favorite dive sites, Crystal Rock, Castle Rock, and The Cauldron. If we get requests for diving with mantas we usually go Central and dive Karang Makassar & Mawan, and for the best of rest we head to Batu Bolong. Click here to read more about the different dive sites we visit.

If you have booked your trip with us via email or an agent please come to the dive centre the day before by 6pm to check in and get equipment ready.

Are there any prerequisites or diving experience required?

Diving Experience

Minimum of Open Water course, 10 dives and Deep Adventure dive (which can be taken on board).

We require that every guest has recent diving experience (within the last 6-12 months) before joining our liveaboards. If not, you will need to do a refresher.

We can also do the Advanced course on both boats and Nitrox course on Jelajahi Laut with you whilst on the trip if you want to improve your skills.

Insurance

Guests must have their own travel insurance, personal dive insurance and trip cancellation insurance with no exclusions for Acts of God and Force Majeure events. You will not be permitted to join our liveaboard trips without presenting insurance information when you check in.

For diver insurance please make sure that it covers you for the depth of your certification and for dive accident cover including recompression treatment.

We can provide short term DAN insurance at an additional cost. Please ask at time of booking if you would like this.

What should I do if I have dietary restrictions?

We can cater for most dietary requirements including halal, vegetarian and gluten free, but if you have specific dietary restrictions we must be notified of this before your arrival.  However, due to our remote location and nature of the trips we can’t guarantee that they can be met.  Where possible, we are happy to prepare meals with food that is brought on to the boat and we recommend purchasing this in Bali or from back home as you may not find what you need in Labuan Bajo.

What if I have severe allergies or medical conditions?

If you suffer from severe allergies or medical conditions you must make sure you have adequate medication with you and let us know so we can inform our boat crew. You will also need clearance from a doctor too.  Please note not all medications are safe to dive with.

The medical facilities here are minimal and evacuation to the nearest major hospital (Bali) can take 12-24 hours in good conditions.

Recompression Chamber

Although we hope we never need to use it there is a recompression chamber at Siloam Hospital in Labuan Bajo.

Join us on one of our beautifully renovated liveaboards for an amazing Indonesian dive experience.
