WHEN THE BEST DIVING CONDITION IN KOMODO NATIONAL PARK?

Types of Diving Komodo Sites

Komodo has a diverse assortment of diving opportunities. On current dives, moderate drift dives, colorful walls, colossal rocks, caves, and swim-throughs, colorful reefs, seamounts and pinnacles, black and white sand slopes, and muck dives. 

Diverse sorts of weather and terrain attract different species of marine life. Th results in ecosystems that are unique to each location.

Because the Manta Season is approaching, diving on Komodo Island during the monsoon is really exciting. Manta Point Komodo is a diving spot with abundant bottom-based plankton. Attracts a large number of manta rays for feeding and cleaning.

The property is located right on the waterway that connects the Indian and southwest Pacific oceans. Each has its own underwater climate, which comes together to provide excellent habitat for Manta Rays.

Gentle and powerful drift dives, gentler reef dives, clinging on to rocks in strong currents, sheltering in the protected side of pinnacles, and muck dives are among the diving techniques. Divers who want easier diving can enjoy the stronger currents, while those who prefer easier diving can enjoy a more relaxing time.

How to choose dive site Komodo

Dive in Komodo National Park, which is both fascinating and demanding at times. Please only dive with an experienced and competent dive operator and only with guides who are familiar with the dive locations in this area. Check sure the dive sites you visit are appropriate for your level of experience. Ensure that the dive site is appropriate and safe.

Currents in Komodo National Park

Currents impact the majority of diving Komodo sites. The powerful tidal flow that runs north and south through the park is another feature that contributes to its uniqueness. The high flows, paired with nutrient-rich water from up-wellings, function similarly to marine hydroponics, bringing in new food to the filter feeders and plankton feeders, such as corals, tiny fish, and mantas!

Every 24 hours, Komodo National Park experiences two high tides and two low tides. The current intensity varies throughout the day. The current’s strength varies during the month in accordance with the lunar cycle, and it can also vary throughout the year due to spring and neap tides. New and full moons are naturally connected with stronger currents. If you are new to diving or like less currents, we recommend scheduling your dives around the quarter moon phase.
