Mastroaldo Liveaboard

Who We Are

Mastro Aldo is operated liveaboard providing short leisure 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 sites in the park and is a great option for the budget-conscious and those short on time.

A maximum of 10 people are accommodated in Mastro Aldo's 5 cabins. The cabins are comfortable with private bathrooms. The cabins have air-conditioning however at night, only fans are used to cool the cabins. The focus on this liveaboard is on personal service, good food and a great knowledge of the sites.

Your tour starts with a complimentary pick up from the Labuan Bajo airport. The liveaboard's cruise director will welcome you on board and, together with the 13 multi-lingual crew, you will be well looked after. Your 2 nights and 3 nights cruise will include an island dragon tour, sunset beach set up with afternoon tea and snacks, 4 meals a day and snorkeling, scheduled to visit sites avoiding the day boat crowds.
