Welcome To Diving Komodo

Welcome to diving Komodo, your new adventure down here in Labuan Bajo, the gateway into the Komodo National Park!

“I looked into the sea with the same sense of trespass that I have felt on every dive. A modest canyon opened below, full of dark green weeds, black sea urchins and small flower like white algae. Fingerlings browsed the scene. The sand sloped down into a clear, blue infinity. The sun struck so brightly I had to squint. My arms hanging at my sides, I kicked the fins languidly and traveled down, gaining speed, watching the beach reeling past. I stopped kicking and the momentum carried me on a fabulous glide.” - Jacques Cousteau on his first scuba dive in 1943

Exploration, exotic locations, amazing color and beauty... these are just a few of the things you will experience in the spectacular underwater world. Welcome to your new adventure, diving in Komodo, down here at the Komodo National Park.

Komodo is unique because it offers two totally different marine environments. In the north we experience the warm clear waters that flow from the Flores and Banda seas. Typical of most tropical locations throughout the world. To the south, we encounter cooler waters that flow from deep in the Indian Ocean.

You can dive the Komodo National Park all year round but:

The best season for diving in Komodo is from March to October, in this period the current conditions is not too strong.

If you want to see lots of Manta Rays, the best time is during the rainy season, from December to February.

 

Komodo experiences a strong tidal flow. Not all sites are affected by current. Drift diving is excellent, however during spring tides some sites are impossible to dive, which is influenced by the ocean tidal conditions, so you must listen to the briefing of your dive guide carefully!

 

The waters that surround the Komodo islands are turbulent and teeming with unparalleled marine life. A marine reserve, Komodo National Park  is largely documented and explored. The park includes 132,000 ha of marine waters. It is one of the richest areas for coral biodiversity in Indonesia and one of the richest fish faunas in the world with an estimated 1000 species. While diving in Komodo, all the reef's with their vibrant colour quantity and exotic fish life are spectacular.  Schools of pelagic fish, manta rays, whales, dolphins, even the occasional dugong follow the many waterways cutting trough the Komodo National Park.  Below the surface, the seabed is covered with lots of corals and marine invertebrates - it is an underwater photographers paradise.
