In the land of dragons, manta rays rule the underwater world. Komodo National Park is full of coral reefs and drift dives in heavy current. Diving this part of Indonesia is best by liveaboard.
Komodo National Park consists of 26 small islands and 3 major islands off the coast of Flores. Known to the world for its dragons, Komodo’s underwater life is a beacon for scuba divers. Most importantly, dozens of manta rays can be seen on most liveaboard trips. You might also spot whitetip and grey reef sharks, eagle rays and dogtooth tuna. Furthermore, Komodo National Park is home to drift dives over sandy bottoms, beds of soft corals and dramatic walls. Because of the size of Komodo National Park, liveaboads are the only realistic option for seeing all the best dive sites here. Most dive safaris last 5 to 10 nights, and the best time to dive in Komodo is from April to August.
