Explore the best of Komodo


Komodo National Park diving

Located in the strait of the same name at the confluence of the Indian Ocean and the Banda Sea, The Komodo National Park features one of the world’s richest and most diverse marine environments—thanks to the overflowing currents in the area. Also renowned as the home of the famous Komodo Dragon, it is certainly one of the best scuba diving destinations that you can find on the planet.

In the north, you can find a collection of the world’s most beautiful varieties of reefs, boasting a rich combination of hard and soft corals, shoals of antheas, wrasses, angelfishes, and also predators—reef sharks, tunas, and giant kingfishes. In the south, you will see more soft corals with an amazing profusion of colors, and even more macro (and manta rays too!). The water is rather cold and the temperature can drop down to 23 ° C in July and August.

Komodo offers a wide variety of dives: pelagic dives with sharks in strong currents, gentle drift dives, wall dives (colorful drop-offs, monumental boulders, seamounts, pinnacles and sandy slopes) and macro dives. You can also find manta rays, turtles and if you are lucky enough, some whale sharks!

Komodo diving liveaboard

Bali is 25-hour navigation by boat but just 90 minutes away by plane...

To avoid the 2 major inconveniences 1) waste of time 2) seasickness - due to long navigation - and to focus exclusively on diving Komodo National Park, we mostly offer 8 and 9-night scuba diving cruise itineraries on our liveaboards from the closest airports.

Komodo Liveaboard

Departures of our Komodo dive cruises are alternately from Bima (Eat Sumbawa island) to Labuan Bajo (West Flores) and from Labuanbajo to Bima. Note that departures and returns from/to Labuanbajo are also a convenient option for those who prefer to fly Garuda Indonesia (and to benefit from their additional 23 kg luggage allowance for diving equipment).

Best time to dive Komodo

Komodo National can be dived almost all year long.....although conditions are not optimal from December to March.

Lots of people asking to us when is the best time to dive Komodo in Indonesia? Wallacea Dive Cruise liveaboards visit Komodo National park during the dry season only (July to October). Not only this is the best season to encounter schools of Manta Rays in several spots like the notorious world-class "Manta Alley" in the South part of Komodo island, but also like in 2017 schools of hundreds of Cownose rays and so many more rare species. The landscape is also breath-taking during the dry season.

An incredible marine life for photographers

The national park of Komodo Island offers the liveaboard diver just about every type of tropical scuba diving imaginable - from warm, calm and colorful shallow reefs alive with hundreds of reef fishes and crammed with invertebrates. 

Komodo National Park offers the full range of subjects to underwater photographers: from small critters of a couple of millimeters to manta rays and even whales. Prepare your lenses, you will use them all! There are over 1,000 fish species, almost 300 types of coral, 70 sponges, 14 species of whales and several turtle species... The park also contains a variety of marine ecosystems, including fringing and patch coral reefs, mangrove forests, seagrass beds, and seamounts.

Choosing between macro and wide angle is not always easy in Komodo because both could be to use on every dive. Talk with our dive team for the best advice for macro because if the current is strong, it will be difficult to get those shots. These dive zones may have a great potential for macro.

CLIMATE DIVING  .

We cruise in Komodo from July to October, during the South East monsoon which is the dry season in the area. The sunny and dry weather is very pleasant for liveaboard and is often accompanied by some refreshing winds. In the beginning and during most of our journey in Komodo, we will be protected from the winds and waves. 

CURRENTS

Some dives can have significant currents, whirlpools and see downdrafts. A good level in diving and some experience in drift diving are recommended to participate to this cruise. Divers must bring a buoy and a signaling mirror. Although we always try to perform these dives during the best sea condition, it might change very quickly. Other dives are more quiet and rich in macro, especially in the south.

VISIBILITY                                                                                             

The visibility in the north is excellent at 30 meters or even more, and while it ranges between 10-15 meters in the south.

TEMPERATURE

The water temperature is 27 ° C in the north and gets colder towards the south where it can drop down to 22 ° C.

A 5 mm long wetsuit and a hood are recommended for this destination.

The climate in Komodo from July to September is sunny and dry with some suspended winds from the south-east. On board, the evenings can even be a little chilly. In May and October, the winds are calmer with a higher chance of rain.

Extensions: Of course as you go through Bali, it is always good to spend a few days there before or after the cruise. Please consult us if you need some advise on where to stay and where to dive. You can also explore NusaTengara for more diving, Alor (highly recommended), Gili islands, etc…
