Duyung Baru Komodo

Which Komodo Liveaboard? Diving from the Duyung Baru

Which Komodo liveaboard to choose? You can't go wrong with the Duyung Baru<. Fr a start this liveaboard takes just six divers in three cabins. With the co-owner and dive guide Vovo Korth taking a dim view of crowded dive sites, often the seven of you will be the only people in the water. Komodo has fabulous diving, with sharks, turtles, eagle or manta rays on nearly every dive. If you're more into small stuff there are plenty of nudibranchs and seahorses as well.
Manta Ray

Manta Ray is Creature of the Month

The Giant Manta Ray is the largest living ray and a very impressive sight underwater. Mantas migrate vast distances, crossing international boundaries, in search of food. Products from manta rays have a high value in international markets, and targeted fisheries hunt them for their valuable gill rakers used in traditional Chinese medicine. Monitoring and regulation of the exploitation and trade of manta rays is urgently needed, as well as protection of key habitats.

These sharks are known for their ability to make sudden and sharp turns as the unique wide-set placement of their eyes allows them a vertical 360-degree view, which is ideal for stalking their prey.
