World Famous Dive Sites in Komodo
Without a doubt, this is the most famous diving spot in Komodo, and rightly so. It is common to find Napoleons, large turtles, white tipped sharks, giant trevally and sometimes even manta rays, as well as abundant macro life.
This shallow plateau is famous for the number of manta rays which congregate here. The landscape is peculiar, made up of coral debris (dead coral pieces), dotted with small pinnacles of hard and soft coral. Aquatic life includes eagle rays, marble rays, bamboo sharks, white tip and black tip reef sharks, unicorn fish, hawksbill turtle and, if you’re lucky, the wunderpus or blue-ringed octopus.
This site is also known as Turtle Town for its population of green turtles. The protected bay is also home to sweetlips, unicorn fish, small sharks, nudibranchs, ghost pipefish, frogfish, seahorses and even flamboyant cuttlefish.
The Cauldron “Shotgun”
This place will leave a lasting impression on you. On the way into and through the Cauldron, you can see white tip and black tip sharks, manta rays, snappers, sweet lips and giant trevallys. Leaving the Cauldron requires taking the Shotgun which acts as a concentrated siphon; compressing the current, gaining a lot of strength and speed. Following the shotgun, the dive ends in an incredible shallow reef called “China Shop.”
Komodo North at its finest. Here you’ll find schools of fusiliers, bat fish, barracudas, napoleons, jack fish, mackerels, as well as white tip and gray sharks. Soft and hard coral give shelter to crocodile fish, scorpion fish and pygmy seahorses.
Just 400 meters from Castle Rock, the shallow end of Crystal Rock gently breaks the surface. Here, the topography is different and visibility can be spectacular. Get the chance to see eagle rays, tunas, reef sharks, schools of anthias and eastern sweet lips.
This is the second manta cleaning station in Komodo Center. Typically a drift dive that gives the opportunity to relax while exploring this long reef dotted with giant barrel sponges, soft coral, hard coral and a variety of fish.
Epic wall diving done on the protected side of the island. A wide range of marine life can be seen here from nudibranchs, sea snakes, and even big creatures like passing sharks in the blue.
Drift along a beautiful reef before dropping into a fish-filled overhang. There is usually a nice surprise of schooling jacks or cruising sharks before ending the dive by drifting along the reef again.
One of the more varied drift dives in Komodo Center. The coral is healthy and abundant, plus there is a chance of seeing sharks or even dolphins in the blue. Mantas are often seen in this area as well.
This all-levels dive site is the perfect way to start out your dive day. Hidden in the nooks and crannies of the reef are octopuses, the occasional electric clam, and even several species of frog fish.
Explore one of Komodo’s only muck diving sites where you can find many small and strange creatures. At first glance, the sloping, sandy wall may appear to be lifeless, but upon examination, the sea floor comes to life.
