About Azul Komodo
Enjoy the ocean responsibly with ecotourism in Komodo
Ocean health is our #1 priority, and we are active in the community through Trash Hero and youth education programs. We are a proud member of Green Fins and strive to improve ocean health in many ways. The Azul Komodo office and dive boat are free of single-use plastics. Reef-safe sunscreen and biodegradable soap are available on our dive boat, as well as towels to keep you comfortable during your dive trip. We also offer freshly made vegetarian food on our day trips to lower our environmental impact (other dietary needs can be met upon request).
Experience diving for the first time or get your PADI certification on one of the most beautiful reefs in the world. Develop your scuba diving skills by taking a continuing education course and become a safer, more confident diver with ninja-like buoyancy skills. Azul Komodo offers a wide range of PADI courses where you’ll be trained by experienced scuba instructors. The Komodo National Park has stunning dive sites for all levels – the best part about taking a course with us? Small class sizes. We guarantee no more than 2 divers per PADI Instructor. Talk about safety 😉

Dive in comfort on our boat, Asmara
This 18-meter, hand-crafted dive boat is designed by divers for divers with sustainability and ecotourism practices embedded in boat protocols. Asmara is a gorgeous boat, perfect for those Instagram photo opportunities. She’s been painted with a lot of care by Jayson Valencia from the Love Crew based out of California. Our talented crew keeps her shiny and running smoothly for an unforgettable day on the water.
This little town of 2,000 inhabitants is nestled right into the hillside on Flores Island, overlooking the beautiful Komodo National Park. The main street is the focal point of town and is only 2km from the Komodo Airport.
Times to visit
The Komodo National Park and its surrounding areas are known for being much drier than other Indonesian destinations with only 800-1000mm of rain each year. However, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a rainy season! January through March is the rainiest time of the year. Manta ray season is from November to April while the best visibility it usually Spring through Fall.
Arriving in Labuan Bajo
Flights from Jakarta and Bali are usually within the same price range ($90-150 USD) and time frame (45min-1hr45min). Once you arrive in Labuan Bajo, you have an easy 5-minute drive down to the main street.
The Komodo dragon
Our dive trips to the Komodo National park can be combined with a guided tour to see the Komodo dragons. On this trip, we visit Rinca Island with one of the local Rangers for a hike and photo opportunity.
Flores Island is host to a rich diversity of flora and fauna as well as many spectacular terrestrial tourist sites. The island was named Flores due to flowering trees in the eastern part of the island after Portuguese explorers settled in the area in the 16th century.
