Q & A

Q : What type of wetsuite do i need for Komodo ?
In general the water temperature in the Komodo area is around 24-28C (75-82F+) so usually a 3-5mm wetsuit is fine, but the southern dive sites in Komodo can drop down to 24-26C (75-78F) so some guests prefer a 5mm with hood.

Q : What power does the vessel provide ?
Our cabins on board have both 110V and 220V international power sockets with voltage stabilizer. The standard power socket in Indonesia is a European two-prong plug.
