We had an unforgettable 3 night liveaboard snorkeling experience with Bajo Dive Club. Much of that was down to Sander's expert planning and coordination onboard - which meant we were lucky enough to enjoy many of the wonders of the park without being surrounded by boatloads of other snorkelers and divers. He also gave clear safety briefs before each dive. Sander's recently introduced sunset cruise was also another memorable moment! Our guide, Akbar, was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and coral we encountered and ensured that we saw manta ray, turtles and shark during almost every trip into the water. Other highlights included an eagle ray, scorpion fish, baby mantas and a walk to see the Komodo dragons on Rincha island. Food onboard was plentiful and tasty - we had veggie with a fish option. Donuts, pancakes or fried banana were also out ready after each dive. Overall a great experience.

Our two day boat trip with Bajo Dive Club couldn’t have been any better! The first day consisted of going to three main tourist attractions: the first one being Pulau Padar, second destination being Komodo National Park, and our last and final stop, Pink Beach. Our second day consisted of going diving in three beautiful spots; Siaba, Manta Point, and Batu Bolong. These two amazing days wouldn’t have been possible without the excellent staff of the Bajo Dive Club! Their staff made sure that we felt safe and comfortable throughout our trip. The staff on the boat are expert in their fields and demonstrated a lot of professionalism. We would highly recommend Bajo Dive Club for your holiday in Flores!

We were only in Labuan bajo for two days so we were scrambling last minute to find a dive shop that we felt comfortable with. We are pretty new to diving and know some areas in Komodo National Park would not be suitable for us. The owner knew exactly where to bring us that we would still have an amazing experience and learn new things but still well within our skills. The lunch prepared on the boat was very good and there was more than enough food provided throughout the day! I highly recommend this dive shop and I’ll never forget the experience we had here! Some of the most beautiful diving I will probably ever experience

Highly recommend booking with Bajo Dive!! We were going for a Discover Scuba Dive and were pretty nervous as it was our first time diving but Lydia made us feel super comfortable from the very beginning. She talked us through the whole process, gave a great safety briefing and allowed us to take our time under the water. She is good at reading how you are feeling and will do everything she can to make sure that you are comfortable and have the best experience possible. She also has so much patience which is what you need when it is your first time diving! The food on the boat is great and they cater for vegetarians too. They took us to the best dive sites and the crew on board were amazing. Leonard who was training to become a dive master was also great too and very professional throughout. The prices are slightly cheaper than the other dive shops in town but it is not lacking in any way so don't let that stop you. Thank you Bajo Dive for the best day - looking forward to coming back to Komodo again! :)

I took several fun dives during 3 days with Bajo Dive Club and it was awesome. Sander, Lydia and Damas are very nice and professional!! They also know a lot about the Komodo National Park and about the dive sites, so you will learn a lot about this amazing area and also get very fun and interesting dives. They choose perfectly the dive sites and the time to go there, they were looking for lots of stuff under the water and we saw many pelagics and macro. The staff in the boat was also super nice and the food they prepared was delicious. Moreover, they helped us with everything we needed to get ready (equipment...) I would strongly recommend to dive with them. Thank you all again for the amazing days there!!! I hope we can come back in the future!!
