Diving with us in the National Park of Komodo

 

The Komodo National Park stands apart as one of the worlds premier and most pristine diving areas. Comprising of Three main islands and a plethora of smaller islands and seamounts, the park is one of the richest marine environments in the world and home to more than 1000 fish species, from giant palagics, sharks, whales, and mantas to the tiniest of pipefish .

 

Labuan Bajo is the gateway to Komodo, Rinca Islands and Komodo Marine Park. There are dozens of dives sites. The best known of these, Manta Alley, End of the World and German Flag, lie to the South of Komodo.

 

South of Rinca Island the water is cooler and more exposed to the Indian Ocean. Dive sites here include Cannibal Rock (a lush seamount covered with extraordinary invertebrate life, pygmy seahorses, frogfish, dozens of nudibranchs and abundant Coleman shrimp) and Batu Tiga (frequented by big pelagics such as mantas, sharks, masses of trevally and eagle rays).

 

To the north of Gili Lawa Laut are Crystal Rock and Castle Rock, where reef sharks, turtles, barracuda, yellow fin tuna, wobbegong, grey reef and bull sharks thrive. Lighthouse Reef offers nearly endless drift dives (bring a surface signaling device) on a variety of dive sites with sharks, turtles, dolphins, mantas, trevally, surgeonfish and rays regularly encountered.

For your entire pleasure, the Ikan Terbang is full equipped for Snorkeling and Scuba Diving :  you will find on board:  fins, masks, tubas, tanks, regulators, BCD, weights...  all in different size .

To fill up your tank we also have on board as  a diving air compressor.

 

Our skipper Bruno is  a "Padi Dive Master" and he will be your guide you during your dive in the National Park of Komodo

 

As your security is a priority for us, we dispose also on board of  a medical kit with oxygen and an advance system of communication with  3 radio VHF .

 

 Before  enjoy diving in Komodo, you must know that currents  here are usually very strong and number of the dive site are mostly reserved to experienced divers with confidence in drift diving : These currents can sometimes reach 8 knots in some places and are due to the Komodo and Rinca island acting like a bottleneck between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean but these currents are why Komodo waters are so full of fishes and so clear.

It is also driven by tides so we will choose our dive site carefully depending on theses conditions.
