SHENRON
Our Liveaboards & Safaris for Komodo National Park

Liveaboard in Komodo & beyond

Excellence in Guest Experience

At Dragon Dive we say “don’t judge a dive boat operator by what they say about themselves – it is way more interesting to read what their clients have to say about their experience.” Hundreds of our guests have posted comments and reviews of their trips.  You can access them all here.

It's our second Liveaboard in Komodo and on Shenron, you will sleep on a proper bed, not outside on a deck. The boat is magnificent and the staff is very professional. At this price just do it... Our best experience so far.

Our Dragon Dive Liveaboard “SHENRON“ is a Phinisi boat: a traditional Indonesian wooden sailing ship built in 2017 and refitted in 2022 with diving in Komodo in mind. Guests are treated to a comfortable liveaboard to relax on between dives with deluxe cabins for a great night’s sleep.

Our 5-day dive safaris take divers to explore one of the best diving destinations in the world  – the UNESCO-protected Komodo National Park. You have the opportunity to sail through remote areas of Komodo National Park and discover the legendary Komodo Dragons on a unique diving liveaboard cruise.

From November to March, you will sail across the South Komodo area exploring Padar island and Rinca island. From April to October, we will offer you the best dives in Central & North Komodo National Park. Our diving liveaboard cruise is guaranteed to give you an experience you will never forget!

In the North of Komodo National Park, the water temperature is usually nice and warm from the Flores Sea (27°-29°C). There is an abundance of fish near pinnacles where you can spot schooling surgeons, big eye jacks, snapper, barracudas and some pelagics.

The further South of the Komodo National Park the water temperature will drop between 18° to 24°C. Padar island has some beautiful sites where we can start to feel the influence of the Indian Ocean and the difference in temperature.

For those interested who are not Advanced Open Water certified, we require you to take the Deep & Night Adventure dives on board for an additional cost. These dives would count towards completing your Advanced Open Water course if desired in the near future.
