Komodo

ABOVE THE WATER

The name “Komodo” is most famous worldwide for the Komodo Dragon, an enormous lizard reaching up to 2.5 metres in length, which can be found on Komodo and Rinca Islands in the Flores region of Indonesia.

BELOW THE WATER

Underwater, there is a range of diving so diverse that you can do every kind of tropical diving here. The region is best explored by liveaboard due to the remote nature of many of the dive sites, and several liveaboard vessels now operate in this region ranging from budget to luxury.

Water temperatures range from 24-28 degrees. In some areas there are underwater hot springs, in others there are fast-flowing cooler currents. This means the diversity of dive sites and animals underwater is simply astounding, and you could never get bored with the diving here.

Big animals include Mola Mola (sunfish), dolphins, manta rays, sharks, napoleon wrasse, turtles and dogtooth tuna. Macro animals include ghost pipefish, pygmy seahorses, frogfish including the rare clown frogfish, blue-ringed octopus and rare nudibranchs.

The best time to see manta rays is December to February, and the best time to see Mola Mola is August. Diving in Komodo is excellent all year round, with different seasons bringing different animals. There can be strong currents in Komodo, but the good operators always ensure guest safety with current checks and chase boats.

See the Indonesia Liveaboards page for vessels travelling to Komodo.
