Uber Scuba Komodo Amalia Review: Diving in Paradise

Padar Island, Komodo National Park

Famous for its dangerous dragons, aquatic adventures, and jaw-dropping scenery – a visit to Komodo National Park should be on every traveler’s bucket list. But more importantly – it should be near the TOP of the list for every scuba diving addict (such as myself).

Indonesia is arguably the single best country in the world for scuba diving, and Komodo is one of the crown jewels that keep divers coming back year after year. It’s a magical underwater playground that can be hard to describe, but those who have experienced it for themselves know exactly what I’m talking about.

Mantas, sharks, eagle rays, turtles, crocodile fish, moray eels, and fish everywhere you look as if you’re inside an aquarium. Komodo has SO MUCH to offer divers, from extremely diverse coral gardens to an array of marine life that’ll blow your mind. Plus stunning topography dive sites with vibrantly colorful coral.

While there are plenty of dive resorts offering day trips out to Komodo National Park for scuba-diving and sightseeing, the BEST way to explore Komodo is setting sail on a liveaboard!

I just got back from doing 4-Day/3-Night Liveaboard with Uber Scuba Komodo and had such a surreal experience — and it will forever remain one of my diving career highlights. My only regret is that I didn’t wait to book one of their 5 or 6-night liveaboards, but those are saved for primarily during peak season.

So let’s dive into this liveaboard experience and look at what made this a highlight of my scuba adventures thus far!

I also posted a highlight video on my YouTube, so check it out before reading the article:

Uber Scuba Komodo Liveaboard Overview

I first came to Komodo back in 2015 (back in my snorkeling days), and ever since I became scuba-certified, it’s been a DREAM of mine to come back and finally experience scuba-diving here. I can honestly say that it’s the best diving I’ve encountered in my life (so far).

After each dive, instead of using my logbook, I’d head to my laptop and jot down some quick notes about what we saw, and what made each site unique.

We did 11 Dives over 4 Days (but I actually ended up extending my time in Komodo and did 6 more dives)

  • Day 1 (Two Dives)
  • Day 2 (Three Dives) + Komodo National Park + Pink Beach  
  • Day 3 (Four Dives) + Padar Trekking & Sunset + Night Dive
  • Day 4 (Two Dives)

At the end of each day, the dive guides would show us on the map where we sailed and the dive sites completed —…
