Komodo Expedition 8 days 15 dives 23-30 Nov 2019 - 8 Days

Komodo Expedition 8 days 15 dives 23-30 Nov 2019

The only resort set inside the Komodo national park, Komodo resort and dive club is the perfect destination to maximize the diving and minimize the boat travelling times between dive site and home base. Join Nomadic Scuba this November.

Komodo Dive Highlights

Think manta rays, sharks, eagle rays, tuna, jacks, trevallies, bumphead parrotfish and Napoleon wrasse – but the abundance of smaller fish is phenomenal – prepare to be amazed.

For international flights: You would have to arrive at Labuan Bajo airport for the transfer to Sebayur island prior to 12pm on arrival day. Should you require a night stop in and air ticket from Bali to Labuan then we can assist you with this at an additional cost.

Komodo Resort & Dive Club

As the only resort within Komodo National Park, we will reach the best dive sites in a third of the time it takes others travelling from other resorts. This unique biosphere contains almost 6000 Komodo dragons, deer, monkeys, lizards and birds surrounded by turquoise waters.

In your traditionally designed lodge, you'll find a large comfortable bed, enclosed bathroom and a private veranda with seating and sunset views.

Each lodge comes with a path from your room to the beach and a partially shaded wooden beach deck with a pair of sun loungers.

Frequently asked Questions

How experienced do I need to be as a scuba diver?

Komodo is well known for its currents and as such we would recommend that divers are fit and comfortable enough to be self reliant underwater. You don't need to be a solo diver but ideally an Advanced diver with 20+ dives, 30m depth qualification with a minimal history of equalization issues.

Can I fly once we arrive back at Labuan Bajo airport?

The general opinion and recommendation within the dive industry is to refrain from flying for at least 18-24 hours after your final dive. Considering the 15+ dives made during the week we would recommend that you aim to exceed 24 hours between your final dive and flying.

Do I need prrof of my dive qualification?

The highest altitude reached is 4190m. This is the elevation of Annapurna Base Camp. ABC is the highest we will climb in this trek.

What about battery charging and hot shower facilities?

Yes, you can charge batteries en route. Charger should be brought. There are hot shower facilities as well. You may have to pay certain amount for both ($1-$2). Negotiate. Also, hot water facility could be free at lower elevation.

Do I need cash with me?

The resort itself does have a card payment system and your purchases during your stay can be credited to your room account. We would always advise travelling with a little cash for small street purchases or gratuities you may wish to offer.

What about internet access?

The Resort does have free WiFi but if you need to be online very often then we would suggest purchasing a local sim card and an internet bundle to be super sure.

Can I dive solo?

No, at Nomadic Scuba we are all about the safety. If you are travelling solo then we can organize buddy groups for the dives to ensure everybody is safe and following international recommendations.

Do we Deco dive?

No, if you are a recreational diver it is not recommended to purposely dive into decompression. With the Komodo currents we feel it would be unwise to risk deco diving as your deco stops may become a bit difficult to adhere to and maintain the location expected for surfacing.
