nusantara Quick Pitch

The Nusantara Liveaboard, whose name comes from the Malay-Indonesian term for the Indonesian archipelago, is the perfect budget liveaboard for joint day trips or safaris. After its major overhaul in 2021, the Nusantara is looking like a whole new liveaboard with its spacious sundeck with shaded areas for taking a relaxing nap or reading a book. 

The Nusantara Liveaboard is run by Mikumba Diving. For another of their liveaboard options, check out the Jelajahi Laut

 

Dive Overview

Indonesia is known as a top destination for divers. It is even said that after you have made your first dive in Indonesia, your diving life will never be the same again. Any expectations and wishes can be fulfilled: from very small critters to giant pelagics, the Indonesian waters situated all around the "Ring of Fire" offer probably the richest marine biodiversity in the world.

Itineraries: Komodo - Raja Ampat

KOMODO

Komodo National Park is located within the Lesser Sunda Islands in the border region between the provinces of East Nusa Tenggara and West Nusa Tenggara.  The park includes the three larger islands Komodo, Padar and Rinca, and 26 smaller ones, with a total area of 1,733 km2 (603 km2 of its land).  The area was made a National Park in 1980 to protect the Komodo dragon, the world’s largest lizard.  Later it was dedicated to protecting other species, including marine species and in 1991 the park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Komodo National Park has been selected as one of the “New 7 Wonders of Nature”, and is part of the Coral Triangle, which contains some of the richest marine biodiversity on Earth.  There are over 100 different dive sites, more than 1000 species of fish, 350 different types of coral and over 1000 individual mantas have been identified.
