MSY Aurora

Since 2009, the Aurora has been sailing through Indonesia, touching exciting destinations such as Komodo National Park, Raja Ampat, Alor and the Banda Sea. She brings international clientele to the best dive sites through a combination of tradition and modern luxury.

The Aurora was built in 2007 by master craftsman in South Sulawesi in the style of a Pinisi schooner. The double-masted ship includes two decks and 9 cabins to accommodate 22 divers as well as a spacious dive deck, an entertainment area with plush seating and a sun deck with lounges, perfect for topping up your tan.

Diving from the Aurora is a comfortable experience. With three small dinghies, you’ll be ferried to and from remote dive sites. Safety is also a non-issue. The ship includes emergency oxygen and a satellite phone.

Whether you choose to sail Komodo, Raja Ampat or somewhere in between, you’re sure to always remember your time aboard the MSY Aurora.


Diving in Komodo National Park is exciting and rewarding. The area is well known for its strong currents and is often recommended for divers with experience. Liveaboard diving over a period of 5 to 10 days is the best way to explore the many dive sites the park has to offer.

Water temperature can be chilly, sometimes dipping below 77°F (25°C), so bring extra layers of neoprene or a hood on top of a basic 3mm suit to stay warm. It is possible to dive year-round due to the dry weather.

The north area of Komodo National Park is a good place for shark spotting at underwater seamounts. Visibility is usually excellent at 66-100ft (20-30m) and if the current is strong enough, a reef hook will come in handy, allowing you to relax and take in the action. This is also an area for exhilarating drift dives as there are several channels in between the many islands with swift currents.

For macro lovers, Komodo National Park has plenty to offer as well. Sheltered dive sites boast a myriad critters hiding amongst slopes and walls of healthy hard and soft corals.
