Komodo National Park, The World’s Best Diving Destination

It has been said time and time again that the Komodo National Park has the potential to become one of the world’s best diving destinations. There are over 1,000 species of fish and more than 350 reef building corals. Any diver would be enthralled with the explosion of colours in the variety of dive sites that can be found around Komodo.

Expect many different types of dive sites where you can search out the unique and wonderful, swim into caves or through boulders, dive-drop from pinnacles or underwater cliffs, or simply just drift in the brilliant, clear water with the abundance of marine life in the richest and most colourful reef areas you would ever encounter.

As Komodo lies in the heart of the Coral Triangle, an area that scientists have described as the most diverse marine habitat on Earth, divers and snorkelers will be able to observe a plethora of marine life unlike any other as well as underwater flora and fauna.

If you’re not into diving but love snorkeling, do consider accompanying a dive boat out to the open waters as these would usually head out to some of the best reefs within the Park. Each dive site has its own unique characteristics, and is affected by the tide at different times and in different ways. A good knowledge of the local conditions is essential to avoid any uncomfortable and potentially dangerous experiences.

While the divers are underwater, try exploring the sites with a snorkel. However do bear in mind that not all dive sites are suitable for snorkelers but you can always discuss possibilities of trips with dive operators before you make a booking. There are plenty of certified dive and snorkel centres in Komodo with many options and packages available based on your preference.
