KOMODO DIVE SITES

KOMODO DIVE SITE INFORMATION

Hot Rocks!, Sangeang Island – A mix of sloping sand and coral formations. At depth we find gorgonian fans with pygmy seahorses and black coral bushes. There is also a small cave where lobster can be found. In the shallows brightly coloured neon anemones “pop” against the dark sand and provide a superb subject for underwater photographers. Bubbles coming from the sand in the shallow waters provide interest during safety stops.

 

The Circus (Star Wars/ Small World), Gili Banta – A superb site for night diving to observe all manner of weird and wonderful creatures; stargazers, blue ringed octopus, giant moray eels and crocodile fish can all be seen buried in or cruising over the sand.

 

Castle and Crystal Rocks two submerged pinnacles, laying just off Gilli Lawa Laut in the North of Komodo Island. The pinnacles teem with life and attract large pelagics including eagle rays, grey reef sharks, Napoleon wrasse and scools of snappers and fusileers. All are seen here whilst we hang in the current and watch the show.

 

Komodo-yellowShot Gun! / Gilli Lawa Laut - Typically a fast-paced drift dive, we spend time in the coral garden with soft corals & sponges, before reaching a deep ravine in the reef seeing schools of snapper moving in ever tighter formations. After which you can descend into the fish bowl, where manta rays like to hang out, before the “shotgun” currents push you over the reef and through the channel to the waiting dinghies. Stay close to your buddy and enjoy the ride!

 

Cannibal Rock and Yellow wall are just two dive sites of the area of Nusa Kode. Colder water, as low as 20C/ 68F, can be experienced here and the water often carries a greenish tinge. But the diving reward far outweighs the need for extra thermal protection! It is here we find the microscopic 'lady bugs', along with rhinopias, frogfish, pygmy seahorses, mantis shrimps and an array of nudibranchs.

 

Torpedo Alley – Also in Nusa Kode, the dark sandy slope is littered with torpedo rays which give the site its name. Pygmy seahorses can be spotted in the gorgonian fans in deeper water and many nudibranchs and crustaceans are found all over the sloping reef

 

komodo mantaManta Alley ,South of Komodo Island - As the name suggests this site attracts the manta rays which come regularly to the cleaning stations. It is common to see several mantas lined up at one time. We watch as 'the black bird' gracefully swoops down or hangs effortlessly in the current.

 

Dragon Besar/ Wainilu, Komodo Island – Hidden amongst the rubble at this shallow site, divers can find mandarin fish and picturesque dragonets as well as frogfish, pipefish and pygmy cuttlefish. We dive at sunset to observe the mandarin fish as they “flutter” up from their rubble home to mate.

 

yellow frogfishTiga Dara / Three Sisters, Komodo Island is formed of 3 pinnacles rising up very close to one another. Covered with soft corals each pinnacle is a haven for macro creatures including frogfish and nudibranchs. The shallowest point is at 3m and ideal for resting during safety stops.

 

Roller Coaster & Swiss Dream, Gilli Banta – manta rays, dog tooth tuna, blue fin trevallies and rainbow runners can all be seen at this stunning reef wall. Currents can be unpredictable therefore an alternative dive is also offered at the coral garden of Swiss Dream which is fabulous to explore for molluscs, crustaceans and turtles

 

K2, Gilli Banta – A shallow reef slope with bommies and a picturesque coral garden. Manta rays are occasional visitors whilst ribbons eels, plakobranchs, cuttlefish and banded sea snakes are amongst the common sightings.

 

The Unusual Suspects, Bima Bay. A favourite for macro photography, with so many weird and wonderful creatures we will often dive this site more than once! Tiny coleman's shrimp and zebra crabs cling to fire urchins, frogfish can be found grouped together, ghost pipefish, harlequin shrimp, sea horses and mimic octopus make this site a real delight.
