Travel and Activities

Ultimate 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 Komodo National Park.

Batu Bolong

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.

Manta Point

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.

Castle Rock

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.

Mawan

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.

Secret Garden

This site is in front of the Padar Kecil island located in south Padar. Begin the dive on the southern part and we will slightly drifted to northeast with the sceneries of steep slope and you will find sandy slope where the black coral is.

Three Sisters

The Three Sisters is an unusual underwater rock formation just east of Padar island that makes the name of this site. The sisters are three large, submerged rocks that rise straight up from the flat sand and rubble bottom. They are within easy swimming distance of each other

Siaba Besar

Siaba Besar is located to the north of Rinca Island. Best dived on a falling tide, when the currents will carry you mildly to south towards a beautiful coral garden. Begin the dive at the northern tip of the island. Follow the reef slope down to 20-24m, where a series of dynamic overhangs wait to be explored.

Dinda Point

This site is in front of the Gili Lawa Darat bay where the boats park for staying overnight. It has really calm current and will be perfect for easy sunset or night dive since its hidden in a small cove on Gili Lawa Darat.

Bombastic Forest

Siaba Besar is located to the north of Rinca Island. Best dived on a falling tide, when the currents will carry you mildly to south towards a beautiful coral garden. Begin the dive at the northern tip of the island. Follow the reef slope down to 20-24m, where a series of dynamic overhangs wait to be explored.
