Behind this unusual name hides one of the best diving destinations in the world. Located at the junction of two continental plates between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores, the Komodo National Park comprises three main islands: Rinca, Komodo and Padar,

It was declared a National Park in 1980. It is the only natural habitat of the Komodo dragon, a unique animal that has granted the inclusion of the area in the list of World Heritage Sites by Unesco. It is since November 11, 2011 one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

 

 

Underwater, you will find everything you’ve always wanted to contemplate: pelagic abundance, adrenaline with diving in currents, macrofauna and fantastic coral reefs.

The best months to go to the Komodo National Park are during the dry period that lasts from March to November. The visibility in Komodo is generally good, it ranges between 15 and 30 meters depending on the dive site and the water temperature varies from 28 ° to 30 ° c.

 

 

Komodo is located in the Coral Triangle, one of the most important biodiversity centers in the world that gives home to 30% of all coral reefs in the world and more than 35% of the species of reef fish.

Some dive sites are cleaning stations for large pelagic, so it is possible to observe dozens of stingrays throughout the year in an uninterrupted dance.

 

 

In addition, lovers of underwater photography and the macrofauna will find some diving spots to put into practice their best techniques to capture the diverse beauty that their funds offer us. Undoubtedly Komodo is a place like no other that deserves one or several diving trips.

Highlights:

BATU BOLONG & GPS POINT

Batu Bolong is considered one of the best diving spots, located in the north of Komodo. They emphasize the amount of life that we find as well as the quality of their corals. Sponges and hard corals completely cover the walls of the pinnacle, a meeting point for Napoleon fish and white tip sharks and where thousands of small reef fish fight for space and food. Hawksbill turtles, sweet lips, listed surgeonfish and gray sharks. If the current is respectful it will be a dive to remember.

 

A little further west we find GPS Point, where the protagonists are the pelagic. Especially banks of large barracudas, hammerhead sharks and tuna offer a show in the blue. But they are not the only colorful invertebrates wandering in dense fields of staghorn coral overflowing with antia, napoleon, bat fish, gray sharks and nurse or great snappers accompany them in this incredible dive spot.

CASTLE ROCK & CRYSTAL ROCK

Another of the most appreciated dives in Komodo are Castle Rock and Crystal Rock, where the clarity of its waters shows us its extensive gardens of soft coral of great beauty. Its colorful reefs are visited by a lot of life as beautiful reef fish, bat fish, black tip sharks, large banks of groupers, fusiliers and tuna.

CANNIBAL ROCK & HORSESHOE BAY

Welcome to the paradise of lovers of underwater photography.

 

Cannibal Rock, its particular name comes from the great Komodo dragons that inhabit its coasts. The great interest of this area lies under its waters, plagued by all kinds of toad fish of huge sizes, nudibranchs, pygmy horses, green turtles, rhinopias, clown fish dancing in their anemones and a few funds full of life.

 

Like Horseshoe Bay, where the muck diving is the protagonist of the bottom, and the dives, although not always with the best visibility due to its sandy bottom, we discover creatures to take our best macro photographs. As a large quantity of toad fish of a thousand shapes and sizes, almost always huge, where we will find the peculiar mime octopus, the sepia flamboyant, ghost pipe fish or spectacular seahorse colonies among many others.

MANTA ALLEY & MANTA POINT

Located on the south coast of the island of Komodo, these points are the best to observe a large amount of stingrays.

They are attracted by their strong currents, loaded with plankton, and cleaning stations. With luck we can find groups of more than 20 individuals enjoying the feast. In addition, its shallow waters also attract reef sharks, napoleons, parrotfish or barracudas dancing on a coral-covered stage.

It will be a perfect place to anchor us, if conditions require it, and enjoy the parade of life in front of us.
