Our opinion on Blue Marlin Dive Komodo:
Komodo National Park desperately needed a dive centre like this one: Blue Marlin Dive has at last invested its expertise and reputation in one of the best places to dive around the world... Komodo! Since it's opened early 2013, it offers the logistical flexibility that's always been lacking around the region: as a matter of fact you can now either spend a week (or more) out there aboard a beautiful dive boat, or be transfered on a daily basis to the dive sites and be back on land by dusk. Or both! This unique SpeedBoat service is so fast and efficient that ALL dive sites in the area are now a stone-throw away! You can plan your dive trip as you wish: one day, a few days, a couple of weeks... or let the managers Kim and Dai customize it for you!
Let's check the dive centre itself. At first sight it gives out an impression of high-standing, and once you check in there's a genuine homely feeling! It is the first all-in dive company in Labuan Bajo, capital city of the island of Flores and your gateway to Komodo's delights: a dive centre, a swimming-pool, a restaurant, a bar and accommodations. The restaurant and the bar offer a breath-taking view over the bay, and serve a 'fusion' carte with the best of South East Asia and European food, punctuated by a Sunday Roast and a Wednesday Pub Quizz night.
All the PADI dive courses are available and the equipment is brand new Aqualung. If you're willing to go a bit further, Blue Marlin Komodo also offers TDI technical and rebreather courses, on demand. It's up to you! The whole team is super qualified and focused on your needs. It is worth noting that you can buy a DAN diving insurance for the duration of your stay... just in case! Blue Marlin Komodo's green attitude is everywhere: member of Green Star/Project AWARE but also of Manta Watch, Aquatic Alliance and Sea Shepherd, they frequently organise beach and dive sites clean-ups.
Ikan Biru, translation of 'Blue Marlin' in Indonesian language, used to travel between the Gili Islands and Komodo for several years. Now it is based permanently in Komodo National Park. Made completely out of wood and set in a very friendly fashion, it's definitely got the spirit of adventure! At the heart of the Park, some of the best dive sites in the World are just a few hundred meters away, for you to enjoy... The groups are 4 strong and your guide is an expert in currents and Indonesian marine life. The liveaboard is still the best way to enjoy everything Komodo has in stock, though the exclusive Blue Marlin Dive SpeedBoat offers new possibilities... The choice is yours!
Typically, Blue Marlin Dive Komodo is the kind of dive operation, liveaboard or dive centre, once you've tried it you just can't stop talking about it! When something is so good, you may as well share it!
