MV Nusa Tara dive boat review
The 20 meters Nusa Tara operates as a liveaboard in Indonesia. Indeed, the wooden schooner offers scuba diving cruises in the Komodo National Park. The vessel is the smallest owned by the Grand Komodo Fleet and would be a perfect private charter for small groups and families.
Boat Cabins & Layout
The Nusa Tara maybe the smallest of it’s fleet but it’s also the most private. Indeed, with only 3 cozy cabins, the dive boat welcomes a maximum of 6 guests on-board. Moreover, the cabins all come complete with en-suite private bathrooms, air-conditioning and enough wardrobe space for two guests. The cabins have showers with hot and cold water as well as a toilet and wash basin.
Nusa Tara’s On-board Facilities
The main deck of the Nusa Tara is home to the spacious lounge and dining area. Fan cooled and letting plenty of natural light in, the area displays plenty of seating space for the small number of guests. Also, the TV/DVD system should entertain everyone if rainy days happen. Plus, underwater photographers will be pleased as the is a dedicated camera station. The station allows plenty of electrical sockets and space to work on your toys. Finally, step outside to enjoy the fresh air from the top sundeck. Partially shaded and fitted with more than enough loungers, the sundeck is perfect to enjoy the breathtaking views of Komodo.
The Nusa Tara was built in 1996, renovated in 2006 and is part of the Grand Komodo Fleet. Just like sister ships such as the Putri Papua and TemuKira, the Nusa Tara is a traditional wooden schooner. Also, the dive boat is equipped with modern facilities and newer navigation and safety technologies, just like her counterparts.
Scuba Diving with the Nusa Tara
The Nusa Tara features a somewhat spacious dive deck which displays individual kitting up stations. Also, there’s a dive platform at the aft to make water/tender entries and exits easy. Plus, there’s an fresh water shower right on the platform so you can rinse yourself right away.
Furthermore, just as mentioned above, there’s a dedicated camera table and fresh water rinse tanks so you can take great care of your camera gear. Finally, the passionate scuba instructors and guides team will always be close and ready to help with anything. Happy bubbles you go!
