Daily Dives

A DAZZLING ARRAY OF DIVERSITY

If you would like to explore Komodo National Park while remaining land-based, day trips are the perfect way to do so. We have four speed boats, TOBY, DIPE, SIMON and SWEETHEART, all equipped with modern marine safety equipment and extremely experienced crew in accordance with marine tourism guidelines. On all boats, we never exceed the ratio of 4 divers to 1 guide (always a certified divemaster or instructor). All of our equipment is excellently maintained Aqualung gear, most of it brand new. Our regulators are equipped with an SPG and it is possible to request one with a depth gauge. Though not all of our regulators have depth gauges, we do offer guests the option of renting Suunto dive computers for just IDR 100.000/day. Prices on our boats are inclusive of equipment, lunch, soft drink, snacks, coffee/tea, drinking water, towel, and even NITROX tanks for any EANx certified divers. They do not include Komodo National park fees which are currently IDR 275.000/day Mon-Sat or IDR 350.000/day on Sundays & bank holidays. For non-diving members of your party who would like to join and snorkel for the day, we charge IDR 900.000 to spend the day on either boat.

daily boats

Toby..

Our 600 HP speedboat.

You will struggle to find a faster boat in Labuan Bajo. Where other boats take 3 hours to get to the north of the park, we do it in less than 1. Toby is for our serious divers and is an advanced only boat (excluding trekking days to Rinca). On Toby, we hit the best and most advanced sites in the park. Toby holds a maximum of 13 divers. IDR 2.800.000 includes 3 dives, gear rental, coffee/tea/water/juice, snacks, lunch, and, of course, a fresh towel. Hugo guests and Toby guests meets at 7:30, leaving at 8:00. Usually, Toby is back by 15:30 – the perfect time to take a shower downstairs, unwind at our restaurant, and watch the sun set over the harbour.

Simon and Sweetheart..

Our smaller speedboats.

Arriving after all daily boats leave? Too busy diving & want to squeeze in a dragon tour before flying in the afternoon? No problem! Our smaller speedboats, Simon and Sweetheart, both hold 5 divers and can be chartered for tailor-made itineraries. Choose between half a day or a full day boat trip. You can reach PADAR island for some panoramic selfies, chose to do 1,2 or 3 dives with it or just take your family on a snorkeling “manta hunt” alongside pristine beaches. Prices are based on requested itineraries and are available upon request.

Dipe..

Our 400 HP speedboat boat.

Dipe is our 400hp speedboat, slightly smaller than Toby, she takes 12 divers or trekkers and snorkelers at the same speed and comfort to all the sites in the archipelago.

refresher

REKINDLE YOUR LOVE OF DIVING

If you haven’t been diving in a while (over 6 months), we strongly suggest signing up for a quick refresher course. A quick theory review and session in the pool can help you become comfortable once again with some previously learned diving skills as well as improve your buoyancy skills. The Quick Refresher lasts about 2 to 2 and a half hours and costs IDR 800.000. It may be done in the pool the day before diving or if the guest is short on time, at the beginning of the 1st dive when fun diving.

Our Scuba Tune-Up (full refresher) lasts about 3 hours and costs IDR 1.250.000. This must be done in the pool the day before. If you only want to hop in for about 30 min to be reminded about your equipment and review the core competencies, we can also do a quick refresher.

Divers prepare to start their rescue practice in the pool.

Scuba Tune-Up Theory

We’ll ask you to fill out a small survey to gauge what you still remember from your previous dives. With your instructor, practice setting up equipment as reviewing the physics of diving, body air spaces, out-of-air emergency procedures and typical dive procedures.

pool practice

Many divers find that scuba diving is much like riding a bike – once back underwater, you’ll begin to remember the skills learned from previous experiences and courses. Your instructor will go through 20 short skills to help you feel at ease the next day and make the most out of your day of diving.

back in the ocean

A thorough briefing by your instructor will let you know exactly what to expect and cover anything you may not have discussed in the theory or pool session. Swim with turtles, explore the reefs and try to understand why you took such a long break from diving in the first place!
