Below is a description of many of the dive sites listed above.
Dive site location in the north of Komodo National Park. Divers can see Fusiiers, Schools of Barracudas, Trevallies, Oriental Sweet Lips, Surgeon Mackerels, and sharks.
Dive Site located in the center of the National park. Divers can see Eagles Rays, Clown Triggerfish, and usually many Manta Rays. This is a famous dive location because Manta gather in this particular area at cleaning stations. Current is usually light and makes for a nice light drift dive. Depending on tide changes, the current can become strong as well.
Batu Bolong is located in the center of the National Park. Batu Bolong mean “hole in the rock” in local language. It can be seen from the surface as a big rock with a large hole in it, creating an arch that is viewable from the surface. Underneath the water is a plethora of aquatic life and many of our guests say it is like viewing an underwater aquarium. Divers can see many different fish including; Giant Trevallies, Rainbow Runners, Napoleons Wrasses, Sharks, and many different kinds of corals. The currents at Batu Bolong can become strong on each side of the rock, so it is highly recommended to always follow your dive guide.
Crystal Rock is located in the North part of the National Park, and can offer great visibility in the deeper blue. Divers can sometime see larger fish such as Tuna, Mackerel, Ribbon Sweet lips, Moray Eels, Scorpion fish, Basslets, Hias fish, sharks, eagle rays, manta rays, and more.
