Join the team as a research assistant aboard sailing vessel Lambo from the Komodo National Park to the Gili Islands. Explore, learn, make every dive count. 

Indo Ocean Project partnering with Pirates Bay Cruises is proud to announce The Komodo Expedition! This comprehensive research trip takes the Penida Project on the road across islands and seas from Nusa Penida to Komodo National Park and back in an action packed 2-week adventure of a lifetime.

The program is jammed packed with exciting world class diving and land based activities, because it’s not ALL about the science. Between research dives, waterfall hikes, Komodo dragon encounters, and workshops, you will be taking part in data collection, entry, and analysis right from the decks of the liveabaord vessel Lambo. You will be working and living besides experienced marine biologists, dive instructors, and boat captains. Every one of the dives are dedicated to baited remote underwater video (BRUV), survey diving, and photographic identification of sharks and rays, making every dive count!
