KOMODO DIVING LIVEABOARD

Komodo National Park features one of Indonesia’s richest and most biodiverse scuba diving and even the world. Certainly one of the best diving destinations in Indonesia.

Also renowned as the home of the famous Komodo dragon, Komodo National Park is located in the strait of the same name at the confluence of the Indian Ocean and the Banda Sea.

In the north, you can find a collection of the world’s most beautiful varieties of reefs, boasting a rich combination of hard and soft corals, shoals of anthias, wrasses, angelfishes, and also predators—reef sharks, tunas, and giant kingfishes.

In the south, you will see more soft corals with an amazing profusion of colors, and even more macro (and manta rays too!). The water is rather cold and the temperature can drop down to 23°C in July and August.

Komodo offers a wide variety of dives: pelagic dives with sharks in strong currents, gentle drift dives, wall dives (colorful drop-offs, monumental boulders, seamounts, pinnacles, and sandy slopes), and macro dives. You can also find manta rays, turtles and if you are lucky enough, some whale sharks and cownose rays.

For many. the beauty of Komodo diving can only be beaten by the holy grail of Indonesian diving, Raja Ampat.

KOMODO BEST TIME TO DIVE

Komodo National can be dived almost all year long although conditions are not optimal from December to March.

Lots of people are asking us when is the best time to dive Komodo. Wallacea Dive Cruise liveaboards visit Komodo National park during the dry season only – June to October. Not only this is the best season to encounter schools of Manta Rays in several spots like the notorious world-class “Manta Alley” in the South part of Komodo island, but also schools of hundreds of Cownose rays and so many more rare species. The landscape is also breath-taking during the dry season.

KOMODO ISLAND PHOTOGRAPHY

The national park of Komodo Islands offers the liveaboard diver just about every type of tropical scuba diving imaginable – from warm, calm, and colorful shallow reefs alive with hundreds of reef fishes and crammed with invertebrates. 

Komodo National Park offers the full range of subjects to underwater photographers: from small critters of a couple of millimetres to manta rays and even whales. Prepare your lenses, you will use them all! There are over 1,000 fish species, almost 300 types of coral, 70 sponges, 14 species of whales, and several turtle species… The park also contains a variety of marine ecosystems, including fringing and patch coral reefs, mangrove forests, sea grass beds, and seamounts.

Choosing between macro and wide-angle is not always easy in Komodo because both could be to use on every dive. Talk with our dive team for the best advice for macro because if the current is strong, it will be difficult to get those shots. These dive zones may have great potential for macro.
