Jurassic Komodo Favourite Dive Sites
Here is a small selection of the most popular and well known dive sites that we like to visit in the Raja Ampat area.
Karang Makassar is actually three large reef shoals that run north-south along the east coast of Komodo, forming a barrier reef. It is a famous and popular site for watching manta rays, which gathering here for large part of the year and are responsible for a section of the site being named Manta Point.
Widely considered to be one of Komodo’s best dive sites, Batu Bolong is also one of its most challenging. Powerful tidal currents and the plunging slopes of this tiny rock outcrop located between Tatawa Kecil and Komodo Island has made it a fish market down there. The current can flow through this passage at more than 3 knots
This small passage between the islands of Gili Lawa Laut and Gili Lawa Darat in North Komodo has churning waters on fast tide. This site is also often to be called Cauldron. Best attempted on a falling tide, the dive starts on a reef wall that drops down to 25 m with scattered coral boomies on the sandy ocean floor.
Crystal Rock is another one of Komodo’s most popular dive sites. The site is named after the crystal clear waters that envelope it, and consists of two seamounts with a saddle between. The eastern seamount breaks the surface, and the top of western seamount lies at around 10 m depth.
Located just north of Gili Lawa Laut, the top of this submerged seamount lies at depth 5m. This site forms large boulders and rocky outcrops on surroundings, that have given the site its name. At 20-25m descending divers are frequently met by whitetip reef sharks and massive trevally.
The Golden Passage
Pink Beach is a delightful dive and one of the most popular spots in the park. The pristine pink beach gets its color from red coral fragments, and it is located near to the trekking area on Komodo Island. Colorful stands of hard coral patterned on brilliant patches of white sand, and form a heaven for fish of all shapes and sizes.
Mawan is a small part of islet to the north of Padar island, ringed by white sandy beaches and shallow coral gardens. The dive begins close to the beach on the southwest side of the island. Descend to around 15m and swim southwest, following a wide coral-covered slope.
This site located in northwest of Siaba Besar island. Really good for easy morning dives with mild to none current. Follow the steep reef sloping down to 20-24m, you will mildly drift past strikingly colorful soft corals, delicate black corals, sponges and a huge diversity of hard corals.
Located just outside the boundaries of Komodo National Park, the sheltered sandy bar of Sebayur Island runs east-west, and provides perfect location for check-out dives, or as a current-free zone for less experienced divers and snorkelers. The mooring buoys are the ideal location to start the dive, and we can follow the anchor line down to around 10m.
