Scuba diving in Komodo National Park is an experience of a lifetime and a top favorite among divers from all over the world. The park is home to Komodo dragons, the world's largest lizards, and an abundance of marine species, making it a popular destination for diving. The area is protected, having been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991, and was even selected as one of the New 7 Wonders of the Nature.
Komodo National Park boasts two distinct underwater environments: the Flores Sea on the northern side and the Savu Sea and Indian Ocean on the south. These waters are connected by the Sape, Linta, and Molo Straits. From April to November, the clear, warm waters from the Banda and Flores Seas create an ideal environment for hard corals and seamounts, while the deeper, colder currents from the Indian Ocean bring forth planktonic life to the south. Reversing from December to March, the warmer waters move to the south while the cooler, greener conditions take over the north.
Komodo is also famous for its high-energy, adrenaline pumping dive sites and the powerful tides that surge through the wide straits and narrow channels. These immense water movements produce a grand mix of different tide conditions, granting divers the opportunity to explore great visibility, current-washed seamounts, sheer black basalt walls, inlets, and dazzling coral gardens. It is highly recommended to have an advanced diving certification as many of the dive sites are susceptible to strong currents.
The marine life in Komodo National Park is spectacular and includes creatures such as Manta Rays, Sharks, Sea Turtles, Spotted Eagle Rays, Nudibranch, Trigger Fish, Fusiliers, Cuttle Fish, Groupers, Sea snakes, and many more. This is another reason why Komodo underwater photography is so popular as well. As well as many kinds of different coral to see. Some of the most popular dive sites include Manta Point, Batu Bolong, Castle Rock, Tatwa Kecil, The Passage, Three Sisters, Red Beach, Light House, Langkoi Rock, Crystal Rock, Karang Makassar Reef, Siaba Besar, Crystal Bay, Sebayur Islands Tatawa Islands, The Passage, Yellow Wall, Secret Garden, Payung, Police Corner, Batu Tiga and many more.
