Liveaboard At A Glance
The Indo Aggressor (formerly Komodo Dancer) is a traditionally built wooden Indonesian two masted sailing Phinisi Schooner accommodating 16 guests in eight air conditioned cabins. She operates an itinerary in the chain of volcanic islands, known as the Nusa Tenggara region of Indonesia, taking divers from Bali to the Komodo National Park. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1991, and famous for the Komodo Dragons that still survive there, this vast area offers some truly stunning diving coupled with breathtaking top-side scenery and wildlife.
Indo Aggressor was built in Indonesia; she is a wooden schooner accommodating sixteen passengers in a choice of three different types of cabin; four twin bedded staterooms, two double deluxe staterooms and two twin/double owner`s suites. All the staterooms are located on the lower deck; they have air conditioning and in the ensuite bathrooms are bathrobes, hairdryers and towels. The twin rooms have bunk style beds. The deluxe staterooms are in the bow of the lower deck and have a double bed. The two spacious owner`s suites are located on the aft of the upper deck and the windows make them light and airy. The forward upper deck has a large sun lounging area which is partially covered. The main facilities of the boat are on the main deck with a comfortable saloon and dining area, the galley and crew quarters. The dive deck is on the forward section of the main deck while the two 6 metre dive tenders are stored on the aft section when the boat is in transit. Early morning hot drinks are delivered to the cabins before breakfast which is taken in the dining area. An Indonesian buffet style lunch is provided and snacks, coffee, tea and soft drinks are always available between dives. Dinner is a sociable time, served as guests sit around the large table and share their experiences of the day.
Diving takes place from the two 6 metre fibreglass tenders which have plenty of space for dive equipment and cameras and in addition have VHF radios, shot lines and boarding ladders. Each boat is crewed by at least one Divemaster as well as a driver and an assistant. Dive cylinders are left on the tender to be refilled. Nitrox diving and courses are available as well as a range of PADI specialty courses. A full range of regulators, BCDs, wet suits, computers, masks and fins are available for rental. A dive guide will give a full briefing before each dive and there are reference books on board to help guests identify local marine life. Water temperature can vary considerably between Komodo and Alor (between 20 - 28 deg C) so a full wetsuit is recommended. Visibility is typically from 10 to 50 metres, depending on the season.
