Diving Season

You can go scuba diving in Komodo all year round because every month of the year promises top quality scuba diving experiences in Komodo National Park.

April – November

This period is considered dry season, where the weather is the best.

In our opinion, April, May & June are the best months for scuba diving in Komodo National Park.
The water is cooler (average 20 to 25°C) in the South of the National Park and warmer and clearer in the north (average 25 to 28°C). Visibility can reach 30+ metres.

July and August, have cooler oceans temperature, however, they are more nutrient-rich which reduces visibility but as a result brags of blooming marine life and massive schools of manta!

November – March

This is rainy season with showers lasting up to 2 hours, normally in the evening/night.

Komodo National Park is perfect for all certified divers. This includes PADI Open Water certification or equivalent. All types of divers are welcome. We offer all scuba diving courses from PADI Open Water to Divemaster & Instructor Development Courses (IDC).

If you need any PADI specialties such as Nitrox, Deep, Photo & Sidemount, please contact us.

    review rating 4  Un centre francophone qui vous accueille sur l'îlot de Gili Trawangan (le long de la côte nord-ouest de Lombok), avec des moniteurs à l'aise en de nombreuses langues quoiqu'il en soit. Gentillesse de l'accueil, attention portée aux plongeurs, matériel adéquat et en bon état, si les eaux de Trawangan sont très fréquentées par les plongeurs (évitez la période juillet-août si possible) vous y admirerez les tortues marines à coup sûr en agréable compagnie. Le centre est en train de s'agrandir, le confort sera accentué et l'espace augmenté dès le mois de mai 2015. Je recommande ce centre à tous ceux qui ont envie d'expérimenter la plongée dans les eaux de Lombok !

    review rating 5  Jättemysigt ho(s)tel med trevlig personal och bra utflykter. Gemytligt kvällshäng med bar och bra sittplatser runt poolen. Dessutom två biljardbord och vedeldad pizzaugn. Härlig stämning. Rekommenderas verkligen!

    thumb Petter Vedin

    review rating 5  Établissement récent, tenu par trois français super sympas. Performant autant sur le plan hôtelier que sur le domaine de la plongée sous marine. Leurs instructeurs m'ont fait découvrir l'univers sous-marin magique des komodos. Je recommande aux backpackers et aux plongeurs de monde entier. Le prix de la bière est un poil cher, mais le restaurant fait de superbes pizza au feu de bois. J'y reviendrai pour sur!

    thumb Colin Hafen

    review rating 5  Highly recommend. Friendly staff and an absolute gem of a place to stay ��

    thumb Johan Zolkefli

    review rating 5  A place with atmosphere. Lovely grounds where to chill, sitting on a sofa on a deck around the pool. Live music every other day. We took the "luxury" aircon bedroom for two, : was fine for us a couple who needs their creature comfort. Excellent diviing in Komodo NP, sometimes current challenging. Manu, Max, NIcolas, capt'n Yusuf and the dive team were happy to arrange with all my dive requests (I'm a picky photographer). The speedboat ride only takes 30 minutes to get to any dive site,: with an early departure I was back fr 3 dives at 2/30 PM, All the advantages for liveaboard diving without the inconveniences. (fish market excellent seafood closeby) We'll be back for sure ! Thanks DDK.

It was never too loud and especially the diving was perfect. Thanks Nico, for showing us all the beauty of komodo. Things I would never even thought it would live. The diving was one of the best we have ever done. My wife, ne and our daughter alone on that big boat was very special and the entertainment our daughter during our dives was amazing.

Komodo Dive Sites

Manta point
Most wanted dive sites from customers! This dive is the main location in Komodo to find manta rays – often as many as 10 or 20.

Batu Bolong – Hollow Rock
It is a summit / pinnacle that descends to 75 meters, between Tatawa and the east of the main island of Komodo to the west of it. Located north of Komodo, this dive site is a real fish festival.

Tetawa besar
Tatawa Besar (“Big Tatawa”), some 30 km east of Komodo’s. Turtles seem to be everywhere and watch out for the blacktip reef sharks, giant trevallies, barracudas. Manta rays also seen occasionally.

Siera Besar – The macro paradise
Located near the dive site Manta Point, this dive site is an excellent spot for the macro dive. It is even probably the best that can be found in Komodo with its flamboyant, fish pegasus, frogfish and hornet ghospipe fish, stingray and stargazers.

3 sisters – The macro paradise
Located near Pulau Padar Island, this dive site has a magnificent topography including three pinnacles from 5 m to 40 m with a very gentle current. You will find benches of mobulas, white and black tips sharks and benches of blue surgeon.

Castle Rock, Komodo
One of the top sites in the Komodo National Park. Schools of fish as far as you can see. Giant and big eye trevallies hunt in big numbers, grey and white tip reef sharks in between. Also a spot where dolphins appear regularly!

Tetawa kecil
It’s best to dive the west coast of this island to explore its vibrant shallow coral gardens full of anthias. Its caves and boulders are perfect harbors for larger groupers.

GPS point
Submerged reef with often strong currents, which attracts a good number of fish such as schools of jacks, rainbow runners and thousands of anthias. Grey and white tip reef sharks patrol the deeper part of this magnificent reef.

Pink Beach
It is located just in front of the old dragon feeding station in the eastern part of Komodo Island, directly across the bay from Komodo Village. Thousands of fish of every color and shape are here including yellow damsels, regal angelfish, checkerboard wrasse, masked unicorn fish and schooling reef fish such as striped fusiliers and Frogfish also hang around the wall, blending in colorfully with their host sponge and surrounds.

Torpedo Alley – The macro

Near Cannibal Rock dive sites, this dive site is an excellent spot for macro diving. Black sand and reef patches are a perfect habitat for ghost pipefishes, frogfishes, nudibranchs and a huge variety of crustaceans and octopus.

Banta Wall, Komodo
Wall located on the north side of Gili Banta. it’s full of beautiful gorgonian fans and hard corals, lot of fish life in all varieties along the wall. Often Manta rays can be seen around.

Cannibal rock, Komodo
Named by famous Divemaster Larry Smith, this is a must to dive if we plan to dive around Rinca. Beautiful corals all around this submerged reef with plenty of cute nudibranchs, frogfish and pigmy seahorses. Also offers proper fish action, as this reef sits in the middle of a channel where plankton are present.
