Komodo

Komodo is now a World Heritage listed destination. Although pictures and videos from the area can provide a small hint of what awaits, nothing compares to the feeling of personally experiencing this place. Mantas, eagle rays, sharks, tuna, whales, seahorses and nudibranchs. It is impossible to describe Komodo in words.

Komodo is a biodiversity in a land of contrasts. Here you can expect encounters with graceful pelagic species such as mantas, eagle rays, sharks, tuna and whales. There are also a lot of macros to look at, such as different types of seahorses, ghost pipe fish, frogfish, nudibranchs, snakes and octopus to name a few. In Komodo's waters, nutritious temperate ocean currents contribute to an amazing species richness. You dive on rainbow shallow reefs and on steep walls patrolled by fish from the top of the food chain.

Komodo is a truly unique area located in Nusa Tenggara Province. The area offers a wide range of incredible stream diving, untouched coral reefs with soft and hard corals, as well as fascinating tiny creatures that have the ability to camouflage themselves to blend in with the surroundings.

Komodo has been classified as a World Heritage Site and a "UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve", which becomes obvious once you are there. The dive sites here are extremely addictive!

Here at Komodo you can also meet the respecting Komodo dragon. It is not for nothing that Komodo is also called the "dragon's kingdom". The Komodo dragon can be 2 - 3 meters long and weigh like a grown man. This is a meeting that gives at least as much tingling to the stomach as meeting a bull shark under the surface!
