The ‘Komodo Liveaboard Diving Cruise’ aboard the boutique Adelaar liveaboard is regarded as the finest way to travel to Komodo. The Adelaar’s crew pride themselves on being the experts of the Komodo Liveaboard diving scene, as they have been sailing this unique maritime route for over two decades. This unique brand-new itinerary takes divers to Sumbawa, to a little-known whale shark aggregation at the bagans of Saleh Bay. 

Be prepared to be thoroughly pampered on this Komodo Liveaboard vessel, which sleeps just 8 passengers, as you surface from your day of diving, you’ll be treated in true Indonesian hospitality where guests are always guests. Sit back and relax, enjoy a delectable array of the onboard cuisine, freshly prepared each day, by our Balinese cooks. Sunsets always seem to be special at sea. Whether it is relaxing from a full day of spectacular diving, and winding down with a cocktail or anxiously anticipating that special night dive, while listening to the distant sounds of waves lapping on remote islands.
