The INDO AGGRESSOR™ offers various Komodo diving itineraries to 4 different areas. The most well known, Komodo National Park Indonesia was established in 1980 and was declared a World Heritage Site and a Man and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1986. The park was initially established to conserve the unique Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis). Since then conservation goals have expanded to protecting its entire biodiversity, both marine and terrestrial. The Komodo National Park encompasses 1,817 square kilometers of spectacular land and marine wilderness, including the islands of Komodo, Rinca, Padar, and Gili Montagne and their surrounding waters. The signature land attraction on your INDO AGGRESSOR™ LiveAboard scuba diving trip in Komodo will be an encounter with the world’s largest lizard - the flesh eating Komodo Dragon.
The INDO AGGRESSOR™ is a traditional Phinisi boat that travels as a motorized yacht and has sails. The sails are still maintained for Komodo diving and other activities but only if offshore and weather permitting due to all the travel close to the islands.
The INDO AGGRESSOR™ offers itineraries to 4 different areas:

Many of our guests are avid photographers who like nothing more than hunting out weird and wonderful critters on the reef and sand. As part of the expanded Komodo diving itinerary we have added two locations to the west of the Komodo National Park on our liveaboard – Sangeang Indonesia, an island volcano to the north of East Sumbawa and Bima Bay Indonesia, 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.
Please Note: The Indo Aggressor requires that every diver carry a Surface Marker Buoy or SMB, also known as a safety sausage, signal tube, or surface marker on every dive to comply with dive safety standards. An SMB is an important safety accessary for every diver regardless of where you are scuba diving.
