8 days 7 nights
Group trip (8 travellers per group)
Not a diver but you wish to experience living aboard in the Komodo Archipelago? Liquid Adventures welcome you onboard its environmentally-friendly vessel; Kira- Kira or Akomo Isseki that runs all electrical systems from solar panels to reduce emissions. During these 8 days, you will snorkel, kayak and try wakeboarding (available upon request). You will visit the less-explored Batu Moncong on the boundary of the National Park with epic sunset views of Gunung Api Sangean in the background. This trip also includes a visit to Komodo Island to see the fabled Komodo Dragons. Meals will be a selection of freshly-cooked Indonesian and Western meals, along with the catch of the day, and freshly baked bread plus treats throughout the day. You will be rewarded with their signature beach BBQ on the last night of the trip. Both boats cater to a maximum of 8 passengers in 4 cabins (3 twins, 1 double bed for more comfort), so you can expect a more intimate experience onboard.

Hand-crafted over 2 years, the boats were built with stability, comfort and safety in mind. Able to travel up to 1000 nautical miles, they are highly economic and were built environmentally conscious, running all electrical systems from solar panels in order to reduce emissions and operational noise; so you can truly capture the sounds of the ever resonating jungle and shore lapping seas at night. Both boats are crewed by the Bugis sailors, from Bira in South Sulawesi; who are known for life at the sea under sail. Kira Kira and Akomo cater to a maximum of 8 passengers in 4 cabins, offering more bespoke dives and services onboard.
