Description and details
Diving on the KLM Mastro Aldo in Indonesia
KLM MASTRO ALDO WILL SPEED YOU OFF TO KOMODO NATIONAL PARK FOR SHARKS, MANTAS, DOLPHINS AND TINY MACRO-CRITTERS.
Here in Komodo we need to take safety very serious, therefore we never take more than two buddy teams with one Dive Guide. Also our experienced Dive and Boat Crew knows very well how to handle the famous current affected waters of Komodo. We will choose dive sites that are suitable for each individual Diver and their experience level. This means that we do not mix Beginners with Advanced Divers but rather go to different entry points of the individual dive site. This will ensure fun and safety for everyone.
ABOUT THE BOAT
Mastro Aldo is a European owner-operated liveaboard providing 3 Night and 6 Night Scuba Diving Tours in Komodo. At 22 metres, the ironwood-built Mastro Aldo is one of the smaller liveaboards visiting the Komodo National Park. However, what it lacks in size it makes up for in stability. It is one of the few catamarans visiting the 40 plus Dive Sites in the park and is a great option for the budget-conscious and those short on time.
For sure the live aboard option is better than doing just day trips. You get to see more remote dive sites and do not miss out on Sunrise and Sunset Dives! There is nothing better than a shark feeding frenzy at Castle Rock. Trips to Komodo and Rinca Island are included in every trip as tourists here must go to see the Komodo Dragons... Other than that we will provide sunset island trekking, beach BBQ and free of charge Night Dives.
IT IS BIG, COMFORTABLE AND ALL CABINS HAVE A PRIVATE BATHROOM WITH A/C.
Mastro Aldo has 5 Standard en-suite cabins. On the main deck there are 3 cabins with windows - 2 with twin beds and 1 with a double bed. On the lower deck there are 2 double bed cabins with portholes.
WE ARE FORTUNATE TO HAVE TWO WESTERN TRAINED CHEFS ON THE BOAT WHO WILL PREPARE 3-4 DELICIOUS MEALS A DAY.
The food will be different every day ranging from traditional Indonesian to Asian fusion and Western food. Our Head Chef is a seafood and BBQ grill specialist, and also a gourmet Western food genius! You will not eat the same meal twice (unless of course you want too!). For breakfast we serve a-la-carte eggs, pancakes or fruit salads. Fresh German bread with Nutella, Jam and so on will be available too. Every trip we will arrange a cozy sunset BBQ on some of the most pristine beaches in Flores. Every trip our Chefs will add some new ideas to their wide range of signature dishes. Trust us; you will not lose weight on our safari trips!
