The Komodo National Park lies in the Wallacea Region of Indonesia. It’s identified by WWF and Conservation International as a global conservation priority area, and is located in the center of the Indonesian archipelago, between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores.

Komodo National Park

Located in the heart of the Indonesian archipelago Komodo national park is composed of three main islands; Komodo, Rinca, and Padar. There are also numerous smaller islands scattered across the park, all are of volcanic origin, and create channels, bays, & reefs for the perfect diver’s playground! Covering a total surface area of more than 1,800km2 Komodo has one of the most dramatic landscapes of all Indonesian diving destinations, the park features rough hillsides of dry savannah, green thorny vegetation, beautiful sandy beaches and, of course, stunning coral reefs.

 

Diving in Komodo

Enjoy spectacular diving in the North, Central and Southern areas of this incredible National Park.

More than 1,000 species of tropical fish, 260 species of coral, and rare marine mammals such as the dugong live within Komodo National Park. Strong daily tidal flows combine with nutrient-rich water upwelling from the depths of the Indian Ocean to create ideal conditions for thousands of species of corals and tropical fish to flourish. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991 divers travel from all over the globe to experience the spectacular biodiversity of more than 50 world-class dive sites ranging from challenging blue water current dives with a chance of glimpsing large pelagic species to discovering rare invertebrates on a ‘muck’ dive closer to shore.

In the Northern and Central areas of the park expect great visibility and warm (27-28C) water, big fish sightings are common and photographers will find wide angle is the default setting. Highlight Dive Sites include Crystal & Castle Rock, Shotgun, Batu Bolong and Makassar Reef (Mantas on the moon) 

In The South the water temps are usually much cooler (21-25C) and the visibility can be less than perfect in these nutrient rich waters. However, dive sites such as Cannibal Rock, Secret Garden, and Torpedo Alley provide sightings of the most diverse marine life in the park. Incredible Manta aggregations can also be seen in the South at Manta Alley.

Prepare for strong currents and conditions suitable for advanced level divers throughout the safari. We recommend 30-50 minimum dives logged prior to your Komodo safari. Currents are usually strongest around the new and full moon.
