We offer liveaboard trips of 3, 4 or 5 days.

All our trips include hikes on Rinca island to track down and discover the legendary & Jurassic Komodo Dragons. Opportunities for swimming and discovering pristine and white sandy beaches are available.

Liveaboard customer Sarah said : “After shopping around and receiving quotes from different companies I decided to go with Dragon Dive Komodo. They are the only dive center offering dorm rooms for backpackers at a cheaper price than the alternative of sleeping on deck! I got my money’s worth and the diving was obviously incredible”
