Komodo Natl Park Liveaboard - First Dives


View Indonesia 2012 on mjschrum's travel map.

We signed on for our first diving liveaboard in the Komodo National Park off the coast of Flores. We were lucky enough to be the only two on a beautiful boat designed to accommodate up to 8 passengers plus the divemasters and crew. Our excellent divemasters Scotty and Valerie did a refresher course at Sebayur and then we had a lovely shallow dive with very rich coral. Tatawa Besar was a fast drift dive where we scooted along with the current and enjoyed the show. Swam upcurrent with a black tip reef shark for a minute for more viewing before he decided to swim off.
