The ultimate in rustic character and flexible scheduling all in one modestly priced package. The Mona Lisa serves as a mobile liveaboard dive platform stationed in the Komodo Islands year round. Guests are transferred daily by speed boat from Labuanbajo to the Komodo Islands, so you have the ability to board or disembark everyday of the week. No other Komodo liveaboard offers quite as much flexibility at such an affordable price.
Built in 1996 and totally refitted in 2006 the Mona Lisa is a traditionally crafted Phisni Schooner made of iron and teak woods. At 33 meters (110 ft.) long and 7 meters (23 ft.) wide she easily accommodates a maximum of only 12 guests in 6 twin bunk bed cabins. All of the cabins are furnished with individually controlled air conditioning, finished in warm teak wood, and have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold water.
To accommodate her 12 guests there is a wonderful outdoor seating area for relaxing and dining, as well as a spacious air-conditioned indoor lounge equipped with TV and DVD. The indoor lounge is great for viewing your photos and video, or exploring the extensive library of marine and general interest books. For relaxing in the evening sea breeze, watching the sunset over the Flores Sea, or brushing up on your tan there is also an impressive outdoor sundeck on the upper most level.
