The best time to dive in Komodo is from April to August. These are the best months only because the most liveaboards operate in the area at this time. Otherwise, diving in Komodo is great year-round. April to November is considered the dry season. April, the month following the rainy season, has the best pelagic action and underwater conditions. On average, the water temperatures is cooler, reaching just 68 to 77°F (20 to 25°C) in the south and 77 to 82°F (25 to 28°C) in the north. Furthermore, July and August have the coldest sea temperatures and the most nutrient-rich waters. Visibility in Komodo can vary greatly. Sites closer to the major islands and Labuan Bajo in Flores tend to have visibility at about 50 feet (15m) while remote sites only reachable by liveaboard can boast visibility of 100 feet (30m) or more. Finally, surface conditions can also change dramatically based on month or geographical location. Northern dive sites can have rough surface conditions from January to March whereas southern dive sites fall victim to rough surface conditions from July to August.
