Peter Hughes Diving in cooperation with partner/owner Meridian Worldwide Ltd and P.T. Ombak Putih, presents the Komodo Dancer.
Based in Bali, Indonesia the Komodo Dancer explores the waters in and around the Flores Sea including Komodo National Park. The Komodo Dancer is a traditionally crafted, two masted wooden motor sailor, stretching 30 meters long, 9 meters wide and accommodating 14 adventurous divers.
Following the standards of the Dancer Fleet, the Komodo Dancer replicates Peter Hughes Diving service, amenities and the highest standards of safety in the industry. Vibrant local cultures, Komodo Dragons, colorful coral reefs, abundant marine life coupled with superior accommodations make Indonesia and the Komodo Dancer your next stop in diving adventure.
Komodo Dancer visits dive sites between Bali and The Komodo National Park, part of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Any time of the year this area of Indonesia offers good diving. Visibility may vary from season to season but 10 to 30 meters (35 to 100 ft.) can be expected at most dive sites.
Komodo Dancer offers 12 Day / 11 Night cruises featuring an enhanced itinerary that allows guests more time diving, more time in the signature area of the Komodo National Park and an opportunity to explore the newly discovered area of the Sangeang Islands. To achieve this, each sailing of the Komodo Dancer will be a one way cruise that will either begin in Bali and end in Komodo National Park or will begin in Komodo National Park and end in Bali.
Many guests are avid photographers who like nothing more than hunting out weird and wonderful critters on the reef and sand. As part of the newly expanded Komodo Itinerary, Peter Hughes has added two locations to the west of the Komodo National Park – Sangeang, an island volcano to the north of East Sumbawa and Bima Bay, an inlet that meanders down to Bima town on Sumbawa. There are two specific sites in both of these areas that are producing a dazzling array of rare creepy crawlies on a regular basis – “Estuary” on Sangeang and “Fuzzy Bottom” at the entrance to Bima Bay.
Vibrant local cultures, Komodo Dragons, colorful coral reefs and abundant marine life are perfectly paired with superior accommodations and a professional, attentive crew to make Indonesia and the Komodo Dancer the ideal choice for diving.
