Each adventure is unique to islands and dive sites that make up the Komodo National Park. The best thing to enjoy it all would definitely by embarking on the best Komodo liveaboard around. Make the most of experiencing the beautiful Komodo with the support of great liveaboard!
So.. What Does the Best Komodo Liveaboard Should Have?
A clean ship gives the best feeling. No leakage, no puddle of water, and definitely no muddy floor. Being constantly in the middle of water and beaches, you know how easy it is for a ship to get wet and sandy (or both). Also, nobody want to lie in damp sundecks patio or dingy cabins. Whether it’s budget or luxurious, a clean ship is definitely an indicator of good liveaboard.
High Level of Professionalism
Luxury facilities is nothing if all you get is just crappy service. The level of professionalism of the crews and dive guides is an important factor of a liveaboard that would set the whole mood of the sailing trip. Even cheap, budget liveaboard can feel very meaningful if the crews give all their best—sometimes even go out of their way—to please you.
We have heard story of a newlywed couple hiring a small, budget liveaboard for their honeymoon. They even got only one cabin with bunkbeds, so there’s no chance for the lovebirds to even sleep together. But the captain (doubled as chef) gave his best and made special candlelight dinner with special decoration—despite of using humble materials—for the couple, which left wide smile to their face.
There’s no better sailing experience than having the crew gives 100% attention to you. You’ll know that this boat is worth spending on if you find floods of praises and raves from the previous customer experiences.
The Availability of Spacious Dive Platform
As diving is one of the main highlight of Komodo National Park’s attraction, a liveaboard that call itself the best Komodo liveaboard of the area should have these spacious dive platform. The availability of this facility make it easier for divers to store their gears safely, making complicated gear adjustment, and rinse properly.
If given the choice, no one would want to sleep in an open deck, jostling with dozen other passengers in the same open deck, with only thin mattresses to lay their back. No. If given the choice, everyone would definitely opt for ensuite cabins with AC, double bed, and private bathroom. Because privacy is a luxury, and having one to support your well-being during the entire trip is definitely a life-saver.
Those little bottle of soaps, shampoos, and toothpaste are some little luxury that won’t be available in otherwise budget liveaboard. When you are sailing in a remote destination, being completely isolated from the outer world, and live in a boat, these availability of these little luxury makes you feel at least you are sailing with the best boat in the park.
