Overview

The Indo Aggressor – cruising the Komodo Island region in comfort and style!

Indo Aggressor (formerly Komodo Dancer) is a proud member of the Aggressor Fleet of liveaboards. Based in Bali, she explores coral walls and fish life in the nutrient-rich waters of Komodo National Park on 7-10 night itineraries. The Indo Aggressor liveaboard provides interesting island cultures, land excursions to see the famous Komodo Dragons, colourful marine life and exhilarating drift dives combined with first-class onboard service and amenities – a lot to look forward to in just one cruise.

Indo Aggressor also offers cruises where divers can experience the most colourful, interesting and diverse dive destinations: Buton and the Tukang Besi Islands (Wakatobi) to the north and the collection of islands from Alor to Flores, the eastern end of Nusa Tenggara in the south and the Forgotten Islands in the south of Maluku. These unique liveaboard trips are scheduled one way, starting and finishing in different locations.

What to expect

The Indo Aggressor provides 80cuft tanks with DIN/yoke adaptable valves, tanks, weight belts and weights. There are two 100cuft tanks on-board. The diving is via the two dive tenders, which are specially designed for local conditions. Each 6m (20ft) long & 2.5m (8ft) wide dive tender is powered by two 40 HP Yamaha outboards with electric starters, which are driven from the front, leaving most of the interior free for divers and gear. The tenders also carry their own oxygen unit, VHF radio and have bilge pumps; 1 dive master is assigned to each tender, together with a driver and an assistant. Guests board the tender and then don their gear at the dive site. Enjoy fresh water showers on the back deck after your dives and dry off with a warm towel. Nitrox courses are conducted on-board, and Nitrox fills are available for Nitrox certified divers at extra cost.

Komodo Island & Marine Park

Officially declared a World Heritage Site in 1991, the Komodo Marine Park around the islands Rinca and Padar encompasses 132,000 hectares, making it one of the largest protected zones in the region. These legendary islands are the only habitat where the Komodo Dragons still roam freely. The Komodo Dragons are survivors of prehistoric reptile carnivores which thrived in tropical Asia some 100 million years ago. Wild eroded mountains and deserted bays with fine pink and white sand beaches dominate these secluded islands.

Indo Aggressor’s primary itinerary focuses on diving in Komodo National Park which sits at the heart of the intersection between five major ocean currents, making it one of the most biodiverse places in the world. The park is home to more than 1,000 species of fish, 385 species of reef-building corals, 70 species of sponges, 10 dolphin species, six whale species, giant sea turtles, dugongs, and various species of sharks and rays.

The underwater terrain ranges from thrilling vertical walls and pinnacles to tranquil sandy flats. The marine life provides a broad spectrum of experiences from heart-pounding encounters with mantas and other large pelagics down to the total satisfaction of spotting tiny pygmy seahorses. Indo Aggressor also visits Bima Bay and Sangeang Island where the muck diving rivals that of the Lembeh Strait.

The sparsely populated and still pristine Komodo Islands provide the gateway to a unique dive experience in medium to strong currents with surprisingly cool thermoclines. It is one of the few areas in South East Asia where pelagics can still be found in abundance.

Staying Connected

There is a satellite phone on board for emergency communication only. Please note that WiFi is not available.
