Dive Overview 

Komodo National Park can almost be considered two different destinations. While close to one another geographically, these areas are often worlds apart in terms of conditions. On the north side, the water is generally warm and sparkling blue, as you might expect in such tropical latitudes. In the south, however, upwelling currents deliver chilly, nutrient-rich waters from great depths, creating perfect conditions for plankton growth. Divers returning from Komodo generally have stories of mantas, lots of schooling fish, reef sharks, turtles, a cornucopia of macro subjects, and some "brisk" currents.

Komodo Dive Overview

Visibility often isn’t great, but most divers agree that the trade-off is well worthwhile, as this living planktonic “soup” supports an incredibly diverse and healthy marine life community. Underwater terrain is quite similar between north and south Komodo, typically consisting of drop-offs, pinnacles, fringing reefs and shallow coral gardens. Divers returning from Komodo generally have stories of mantas, lots of schooling fish, reef sharks, turtles, a cornucopia of macro subjects and some "brisk" currents. Because of the currents, Komodo is generally not suitable for beginners.



Komodo Dive Sites 

On a diving trip from Sebayur, we can dive the sites of the North Komodo area: Sebayur, Castle and Crystal Rock, The Cauldron, Golden Passage, Batu Bolong, Manta Point, Tatawa Besar and Kecil, Pulau Tengah, to name a few wonderful places to dive.

  • Sebayur Central - Starting from the mooring, we head westward on the sandy bottom inhabited by a colony of garden eels. Sloping down towards the west, we will find at 25 meters depth some rocks covered by corals and visited by many fishes. Swimming towards the west along the slope on our right side, we reach a point where the slope becomes steeper and forms a wall covered by gorgonians, crinoids, sponges. Here we can easily find colorful flatworms, nudibranchs, crocodile fishes, groopers lobsters, trigoni maculate and medium-size tridacnas tridacne. Sometimes a sea eagle or a shark passes by. We make our safety stop on the coral garden in front of the rocky side of Sebayur.
  • Sebayur West - The dive starts at 50-60 meters from the coast near the western tip of Sebayur Kecil, going down along the slope until we reach 15-18 meters, where a sandy saddle joins the platform of Sebayur Kecil to the cliff. We turn clockwise around the corner of the cliff and go east reaching a depth of 28 – 30 m along a beautiful wall covered by Alcyonaria, swimming among schools of fusiliers and surgeonfish. This is the area of Sebayur Kecil where it is easier to spot big fishes, like sharks, trevallies, sea eagles and mantas. Going further east, at the end of the cliff, we will head to the slope which is about 15 meters away. We go east along the slope and end the dive with a safety stop not far from the rocks of central Sebayur. This dive is not possible during the moon changes, when the currents are strong.
  • Crystal Rock - At about 300 meters from the Castle rock, there is Crystal rock, whose tip is exposed at low tide. Similarly to Castle Rock, the current at Crystal rock can be very strong. Nevertheless, a better shelter is found in the shade of the big rock. Besides the same fish species populating also Castle rock, there is a beautiful coral garden rich in fan corals on the Southwest side. In no current condition, we suggest starting the dive at 22-24m on the on the saddle connecting the main rock to a big pinnacle covered by fan corals. From there you can dive down to 27-30m to look for pygmeus seahorses on the fan corals. After having swum around a smaller pinnacle at about 22 meters, you will head to the main rock on its western side. From here we will go up, by reaching the main rock eastern side and you will make the safety stop at about 12 meters depth.
  • Castle Rock - At Castle rock the current can be very strong. We recommend that only very experienced divers visit this site in strong current condition.
  • Several pinnacles rising from a shelf 20-24 meters deep and reaching almost the surface up to 4 meters deep, offer an unforgettable view. Among the pinnacles, huge schools of fusiliers and surgeonfishes attract Giant and Jack trevallies, Spanish mackerels and sometimes dolphins. White tip and black tip sharks patrol the area, which is often visited by eagle and manta rays. Most divers wish to come back here again and again. The visibility is excellent.
  • The Cauldron - Usually a drift diving along the channel between Gili Lawa Laut and Gili Lawa Darat. With the high tide, we start from the south-eastern side of the channel and we cross it swimming among corals and school of fishes. On the other side of the channel, we will drift up on the edge of the cauldron. Once entered the cauldron we will dive down to the bottom watching the wall covered by corals and crinoids. Inside the cauldron, you will enjoy the amazing view of sharks and big pelagic fishes whirling round.We will go up along the northern side of the wall, we will be drift a bit longer to end up behind the western tip of Gili Lawat Laut where the boat will be waiting. Great snorkeling, but suitable for expert swimmers, due to the strong currents.
  • Golden Passage - This dive site is the channel that separates Gili Lawa Darat from Komodo Island. It’s a surprising drift dive better to be done in rising tide when the current pushes east to west. Get into the water in the shallow eastern bay and follow the current. The coral garden is beautiful and deeper you get more life you’ll find there waiting for you. You will cross the channel about 20 meters deep surrounded by amazing landscapes always changing and fishes. Schools of sweet lips, trevally, reefs white and black tip sharks. Lots of turtles. In few occasion, we met giant manta ray and dolphins. The dive ends at the opposite side of the channel where divers can enjoy the bright corals during the safety stop. The dive with opposite tide still very nice and the site is very suitable for snorkelers especially in the shallow waters of the bays.
