Komodo National Park
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be face to face with a dinosaur?
In Komodo your dream can come true. Komodo and Rinca are the only places where we can still find these Komodo Dragons in the wild.
These small, brown scorched-earth islands fringed with sandy beaches are lapped by the clear waves of the national park, where you may even see the dragons patrolling the beach or viewing you from a high rocky outcrop.
Below the surface there will be many more wonderful creatures you may have never seen before in your life, like the hobbit worm or a rhynopia, a lady bug or skeleton shrimp.
Komodo is not only famous for it macro life, there is an abundance of fish and corals due to its mineral rich waters. Don’t be surprised to see some beautiful pelagic, like sharks or mantas.
The water is not always warm, in fact it can be decidedly cool. The seas are not always calm, the currents can rage but the abundance of pelagics, more critters and interesting macro-action than you could imagine, the dazzling colours and diversity, make scuba diving here truly legendary.
Due to it geographic location, right in between the Indian ocean and the Flores sea in the North, we can expect stronger currents.
