Save 10% on Moana Cruising14th September 2016 | Sandro Lonardi
The InterDive trade show is this weekend, September 15th to 18th! To celebrate, Diviac is rolling out several new special deals. This Komodo special is one of our favorites, but be sure to take a look at all of them on the Diviac Magazine.
The first InterDive special is a deal on all Moana departures. Book before the end of September and get 10% off the Moana Cruising departure of your choice! This boat's itineraries sail to Komodo National Park, giving you a glimpse of manta rays and dragons. Snag this deal and you’ll pay only $1618 for a 5-night cruise!
Here's a hot tip! Moana Cruising usually only sails in Komodo, but at the end of December 2017, she will be setting her sights on far away lands, like Wakatobi or Sulawesi. This special cruise is almost full, but you can apply this 10% offer to the last 2 available spots!
Best of all, this special gives you the opportunity to sail on a traditional liveaboard through storied lands. Book this deal before it’s gone!
The Moana is a 100-foot (30m) Phinisi schooner. This cozy and professional sailboat has been pampering its guests with great diving and great accommodations for more than a decade.
There are 5 cabins on the Moana. All of them are situated below deck and fall into three different classes. Two of the cabins have a double bed; two boast three beds; and one is considered a family room with a double bed and two bunk beds. There is a maximum of 12 divers on the boat in order to ensure comfort for everyone.
The common areas are also quite spacious. The indoor salon is air-conditioned and the deck area has plenty of sun loungers for relaxation.
The dive deck has everything necessary to store your gear, and the diving takes place from small speedboats. The Moana is one of the only ships that remains in Komodo year-round, so you’ll be diving with the people who know the area best.
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.
