Diving in Komodo
 
The Komodo National Park's waters are known for their high marine biodiversity, making it an ideal destination for adventurous divers. Whale sharks, manta rays, clown frogfish, nudibranch, and coral proliferate in the area.

The marine ecosystem around the park's islands are actually two separate habitats, quite close to one another.

The southern parts are fed by deep sea currents that bring cold water from Antarctica through the Indian Ocean. That portion of the park supports an amazing and colourful profusion of temperate zone marine life.

A few miles to the north, the tropical waters nurture over 1,000 species of warm water fish and marine mammals, including at least fifteen different varieties of whales and dolphins.

Few places enjoy Komodo's reputation for being a remote and inspiring place and diving Komodo and the surrounding area evokes the same feelings. These small, brown scorched-earth islands fringed with sandy beaches are lapped by the clear waves of the national park, where you may even see the dragons patrolling the beach or viewing you from a high rocky outcrop.

Unlike other parts of Indonesia, the reefs around the south of the islands have suffered relatively little damage from dynamite fishing. Much of the area now lies within the protection of the national park. The shallow reefs between Flores and the northern region however, were bombed in the past but are now recovering their former splendour. The affected area covers around 15% of the archipelago, and even here steep drop-offs and current-swept points offer excellent Komodo diving.

Besides the sheer excitement of simply being somewhere like Komodo, you are also cruising over some of the most exciting dive sites in Indonesia. The water is not always warm, in fact it can be decidedly cool. The seas are not always calm, in fact the currents can rage. But the abundance of pelagics, more critters and interesting macro-action than you could imagine, the dazzling colours and diversity, make diving here truly the stuff of legend.

The Diving Season

The season is year round with November to January seeing the best conditions as far as visibility is concerned. The seas can kick up a little in different areas, such as the northern sites during January to March and the southern sites during July and August.
