Diving trip to world heritage listed Komodo with Bent Christensen. Pictures and videos from Komodo can give you an idea of ​​what awaits you in this absolutely amazing archipelago in Indonesia. Once you get here, the feeling of experiencing Komodo on the spot is very special. Here you dive with manta rays, eagle rays, sharks, tuna, sometimes even whales and whale sharks. Here there is a fabulous macro life with different sizes and species of seahorses, octopus, strange ghost pipefish, frogfish, different kinds of crustaceans, a lot of smaller species of blennies and gobies and lots of beautiful nudibranchs.

It is very difficult if not impossible to describe in words what a diving trip is Komodo offers a ride with Bent Christensen on a wonderful diving trip that combines both liveaboard and accommodation at a resort. You also get a night on the road in beautiful Bali and for those of you who want to build on with extra days here, that is of course also fine.

Learn more about UV photography and marine ecology - You and 13 other people have the opportunity to go with this really special diving trip to Komodo. You will get UV photo tips and ideas while having the unique opportunity to learn more about the amazing underwater world of mariecologist Bent Christensen. The marine life in Indonesia and Komodo is extremely rich, as are large parts of the rest of Indonesia, but if you have other questions and thoughts, please bring them up as well. Few can offer as much knowledge about the interaction in nature as Bent.

Your accommodation - Before you get to Komodo and Flores, you will have an overnight stay in Bali. We have chosen a good hotel near the airport. Once in place on Flores, you have another hotel night near the airport and the harbor to then start your diving. The liveaboard KLM Eliya is a brand new liveaboard with space for a maximum of 14 diving guests on board. The boat is brand new and will have only been in use for a year when we get there. The liveaboard offers diving and full board, and here you can enjoy the days both below and above the surface. In addition to diving, you will of course do beach diving and have the opportunity to see Komodo's famous "dragons" the Komodo dragons up close. These, the dinosaurs of our time, are amazing animals that are only found here on a few islands and are a real experience.

After your liveaboard you then have four nights at the Scuba Junkie resort and this includes 9 dives in total and full board. The rooms have AC and the diving will be in slightly different locations in the northern parts of the Komodo Archipelago so you will see something different. 

Our ambassador Bent Christensen - Bent is an experienced diver and traveler with a lifelong and very keen interest in animals, plants and ecosystems. Very interested in biology and combines the interest with being a lecturer at Umeå University.

About Komodo

Komodo is a biodiversity in a land of contrasts. Here you can expect encounters with graceful pelagic species such as manta rays, eagle rays, sharks, tuna and whales. There is also a lot of macro to watch here, such as different types of seahorses, ghost pipe fish, frogfish, nudibranchs and blue-ringed octopus to name a few. In Komodo's waters, nutrient-rich temperate ocean currents contribute to an amazing diversity of species. You dive on iridescent 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 current diving, unspoiled coral reefs with soft and hard corals, as well as fascinating little creatures that have the ability to camouflage themselves to blend in with their surroundings.

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

Here at Komodo, you can also meet the awe-inspiring Komodo Dragon. It is not for nothing that Komodo is also called the "kingdom of dragons". The Komodo dragon can be over 3 meters long and weigh as much as a fully grown man. This is an encounter that gives at least as much tingle in the stomach as meeting a bull shark under the surface!
