Komodo National Park was established in 1980 and declared a World Heritage Site and a Man & Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1991. The protected area of the Lesser Sunda island chain sits at the Southern end of the Coral Triangle and contains some of the richest marine biodiversity on Earth.

The remote yet fascinating Komodo Archipelago lies east of Bali between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores, and is home to the prehistoric ‘Komodo Dragon’. This reptile has managed to survive for thousands of years, and is found nowhere else in the world. But it is beneath the dragon’s lair, in the underwater world, that draws diving enthusiasts from all corners of the earth. We offer several itineraries departing from Bali, Flores and even Maumere. You can choose to mostly stay in the Komodo National Park or take this opportunity to explore lands and waters beyond the Park.

  • 0 Dives

Clear, warm water with lots of fish awaits you on the first day of diving on the seamounts off the island of Moyo. An optional village visit with a stroll to a nearby waterfall is also possible.

  • Pulau Moyo, Sumbawa Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
  • up to 3 Dives

Day 3: Sangeang

After a second night’s crossing, the critters inhabiting the colourful reefs of Sangeangs rich black sandy slopes are waiting to be discovered.

  • Sangeang Island, Sangiang, Bima Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
  • 3 day dives, 1 night dive
4

Day 4: Banta

A completely different underwater landscape provides the setting for today’s underwater adventure. The hard coral formations on Bantas white sandy substrate are the home of a multitude of fish, turtles, sea snakes, reef sharks and the occasional eagle and manta rays.

  • Banta Island, Bajopulau, Bima Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
  • 3 day dives, 1 night dive
5

Day 5: South Komodo

This whole day is dedicated to rays: during the day we check out ‘Manta Alley’, arguably one of the world’s best sites to observe the gentle giants – and in the evening we look for their smaller cousins, the elusive torpedo rays.
So the area was designated as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in 1991. Once safely back aboard, we travel south for a late morning dive along the coast of Komodo. At dusk, we dive Lehok Sera to search for the elusive mandarin fish.

  • Komodo Island, Komodo, West Manggarai Regency, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
  • 3 day dives, 1 night dive

Day 6: South Komodo National Park

We plan an early morning departure, as we head to the extreme southern end of Komodo to Manta Alley. This area typically has much cooler temperatures with nutrient rich waters, perfect for Mantas! We then enjoy lunch as the boat moves to southern Rinca to an area known as Nusa Kode. With the towering cliff walls surrounding all sides, the landscape in this remote area, is breathtaking. Between dives, we board the dinghy and head towards the shore, to get up close to the resident dragon population. After the sun sets, we prepare for a night dive, and a late dinner.

  • Komodo National Park, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
  • 3-4 Dives

Day 7: South Rinca

There are two dives planned for this area, one of which will be the famous ‘macro temple” of Cannibal Rock, a photographers dream come true. From here we journey north to Padar Island for our afternoon dive. Just before sunset, we go ashore and hike across a beautiful crescent bay, to witness a spectacular sunset. Alternately, for those who prefer to be underwater, a night dive is planned.

  • Padar Island, Komodo, West Manggarai Regency, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
  • 3-4 Dives
8

Day 8: Padar & North Rinca

We depart early from Padar and enter the central park area, also known as ‘current city’. This area of the park is subjected to the strong tidal currents that run through the Lintah Strait, bringing with them, plenty of marine life. These currents make for lots of action and exhilarating drift dives. Mantas are often seen in these parts. In the late afternoon, we make our way north toward Wainilu and prepare for a night dive.

  • Selat Lintah, Indonesia
  • 3-4 Dives

Day 9: Central Komodo

We spend the day diving around the center and northern boundary of the Park off the uninhabited islands of Gili Lawa Laut and Gili Lawa Darat. Finally, we anchor in a quiet bay for the night, and plan a night dive.

  • Komodo National Park, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
  • 3-4 Dives
10

Day 10: North Komodo

We enjoy the last dives of the trip around the Northern boundary of the Park and the islands of Sebayor. Be aware of your “no fly time” and plan your last dive to stay within safe flight limits.

  • Komodo National Park, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia
  • 3 Dives
