Last Minute Komodo on Mermaid 1

06 May 2018 - 07:54 PM

We have a last minute availability of a space in a Budget cabin on the Mermaid 1 liveaboard for a trip to Komodo!  This is with a male so it's best that the space would go to another male.  The dates for this trip are 1 - 10 June 2018, in other words in around 3 weeks time from now. 


The Mermaid 1 is the flagship vessel of the Mermaid fleet, this 9 night trip will depart and return to Bali.  Therefore, there are no domestic flights needed. 


All of the best spots in Komodo will be visited on this trip with amazing black sand sites in Sangeang, Manta Alley, Horseshoe Bay, and Castle Rock all on the itinerary.  The space is 2900 Euro (approx USD $3473) plus a National Park/Harbour Fee of 150 Euro (approx USD $180, paid directly on the boat).


The Komodo itinerary is a special one as there are really amazing encounters with mantas, big schools of fish, beautiful reefs for wide angle opportunities and world class macro life as well.


A member of the Underwater Tribe will be on hand to help with all photo related questions.  This is not a Photo Workshop but there will be plenty of photo talk and some casual presentations about the best way to capture stunning images in the Komodo area.
