Moana Double CabinWelcome onboard MOANA. After a refreshing welcome drink, we set sails heading south. Now it is time for a short introduction to the facilities of our vessel and the tour program. Afterwards, there is only one thing left to do: relax and enjoy great views, while we are steaming towards our first stop: the famous Komodo National Park. The route depends on several conditions (weather, moon phase, season). The first dive will be in the afternoon. The spot near Sebayur Kecil is often used for a check dive because of the conditions are suitable for beginners. After wards snacks on board. Moana will stay in a quite bay for the night.

Day 3: Gili Lawa - Tatawa (B/L/D)
Diving with MoanaFirst dive before Moana hoists anchor and moves to the area between Komodo and Rinca. Passage 2 is also known for strong currents. Depending on the starting point you will follow a lushly covered wall with many ledges which transforms to a canal with harsh edges. The currents follow the natural topography until you reach a basin. Following the rim you will reach a shallow coral garden where leaf scorpionfish (Taenianotus triacanthus), frogfish and crocodilefish (Cymbacephalus beauforti) hide between the rocks. Meet mackerels, turtles and sweetlips on the way. In the afternoon Moana will stay near Komod and Rinca. From there we can reach many of surrounding diving spots. Some of them are the best of the National Park. For example Batu Bolong south of Sebayur Kecil. It is easily spotted from above because of the characteristic rock arc. The diving spot is aptly named Current City. The tip of an underwater mountain is densely covered with corals and many fish can be found here. The currents attract also big fish.
