We can't recommend enough the experience! We spent 5 wonderful days/4 nights on the boat with two other couples (max 8 people capacity). It's the perfect duration for the cruise as the area is full of amazing dives, viewpoints and other surprises ; the planning crafted by the staff is incredibly complete and balanced, as well as adaptable depending on the preferences of the travellers. We swam with turtles, sharks and mantas through snorkelling sessions, witnessed the flight of the giant bats at the sunset, climbed Padar island for another sunset (you'll enjoy every single one of them), set foot on some of the most amazing secret beaches and had plenty of time to enjoy the air of the ocean, read on the deck & taste the delicious fresh meals prepared by the cook. The global experience is worth every cent. The boat is very comfortable and offers all the commodities you can hope for. The staff is very professional, skilled and it has been a pleasure to sail with them. Laurent will be your guide an what a guide! He's in love with the area and the lifestyle, strongly conveys his passion and is always of a precious company! Thanks again Laurent, you did wonderful and Komodo is lucky to count you in. Go, you'll love it.

We have had one of the most wonderful experience of our life aboard the DUYUNG. 3 hilarious couples with a very knowledgeable diving instructor and cruise leader: Laurent.
Laurent is full of stories and experiences and therefore makes this trip not only safe and fun but also extremely human.
Could not recommend more. Best value for money, awesome food, wonderful crew.
Above water: insanely beautiful and pleasant, cruising the waters of Komodo park
Below water: one of the richest aquamarine life accessible to all (divers and snorkelers) with giant turtles, huge manta rays, reef sharks and endless fishes
10/10

We spend 5 days/4nights, on the Duyung with Laurent and the crew.
The boat is well maintained, the food is good and varied, and the nature is incredible.
Laurent was knowledgable and truly passionate about the Komodo National Park.
He made us discover some great islands and lovely people.
The boat trip was really flexible, catering for PADI divers, non divers as well as new divers. My husband was lucky enough to go on his 3 first ever dive there with Laurent at his side. He cannot get over it! We saw Manta Rays, turtles and beautiful coral.
This boat cruise was authentic, relaxed and wonderful.
Merci Beaucoup!

We spent 5 wonderful days aboard Duyung, a traditional Indonesian boat. The staff is very helpful and the boat clean and comfy. The food was great too. If you plan to visit this part of the world, don't miss Komodo archipelago. The scenery is outstanding and the marine life just incredible. Ludo and his team can organize dives too, as the boat is fully equipped for such activities. We had a really great time there, sailing around.

Wow! If you are looking to visit Komodo National Park islands then look no further and do not hesitate in contacting Ludo for a trip of a life time. Ludo and his crew are fantastic, we have such special memories that will last our lifetime. The boat is beautiful, very comfortable with plenty of space and kept immaculately clean. You can sleep on the deck in the open air if you want to which was fantastic. There is plenty of food, drink and snacks provided. There is also a large fridge where you can store any extra treats you might want to bring along. You can shop at a large supermarket opposite the harbour before boarding. Snorkels, flippers, bath towels, sarongs were provided.
Ludo is very passionate about the area and looking after the delicate environment and wildlife. We don’t dive but the snorkelling was incredible, some of the best we have seen in many years. Ludo will keep you away from the masses as much as possible and unlike many other boats Ludo turns the generator off of an evening so you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of life at sea.
You will be treated to local villages, beaches that you will have to yourselves, stunning scenery, amazing sunsets, an incredible display of bats which will take your breath away and if you are lucky and the mantas are in the area then to swim amongst them is absolutely breathtaking, it was one of the best wildlife encounters we have ever experienced. Ludo never rushes you, everything is completed at your pace with total flexibility. Each day you will experience something different, something unique, something that will take your breath away. This trip was an amazing experience and I can not recommended Ludo highly enough.

We loved the cruise with Ludo to the Komodo archipel. Snorkling, sleeping at the deck, the trekking , the bat show , the Komodo dragons and the wonderful visit to the fishermen village. It was very nice ! Unfortunately the manta ray left the area in August , but that's nature !
Ludo and his crew really took good care of us and tried to make it very comfortabel for us.

Ludo and his crew provided an amazing scuba and exploration experience of Komodo national park. Having read about the challenges of diving in Komodo and being fairly new divers, we were hesitant to take this trip but Ludo's knowledge and experience of both the area and diving made us feel safe and well informed. The thrill of being only a few feet away from eight huge Manta rays, seeing the Komodo Dragons up close and a hike to watch the sun set into the ocean are among a few of the highlights but that is only the start of what we saw and learned on this trip. The boat crew is terrific, providing great service and delicious meals. We would highly recommend Ludo's boat whether for scuba or exploration to anyone wanting to experience the beauty of Komodo in a friendly, fun filled yet relaxing atmosphere.
