Come aboard Moana for a six day cruise in the Komodo National Park. You will see some of the world's most famous diving spots and the mysterious Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis). Many of the dives are challenging because of strong currents. Therefore the trip is best suited for advanced divers.

Non-divers can relax on the sun deck or go trekking on Pulau Rinca and see the big lizards in their natural habitat. Accommodation will be in one of Moana's private cabins with en-suite bathroom and air-condition. It is possible to book the tour with optional dives (standard) or with unlimited diving (upgrade).
