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.
