Antares the brightest star in Komodo National ParkVerified review

Myself and 3 friends had the pleasure of being aboard Antares for 10 days in May 2017. This well appointed yacht is fully equipped. We were well looked after by her guide and crew and saw as much of the national park as possible. Tanks were ready every time, currents and dive plans backed by knowledge and experience. 3 dives a day every day. Great and fresh food at every meal. Perfect downtime between each dive and the locations were second to none. Antares is a fantastic diving boat - Comfortable, Friendly, Food, Fun, Dive sites, Night name it they have it. I grabbed a great bunch of photos and if I could post them in here I would. Get on board and enjoy.
