Itineraries

KOMODO, the realm of the dragon

Komodo is one of Indonesia’s driest regions.

Be sure to include a land visit to see the huge Komodo dragons when you go there. Underwater, Komodo offers just about every type of diving; from current-swept seamounts patrolled by sharks, tuna and other pelagics to calm reefs with teeming schools of fish.

Diving is good year-round. Because of strong currents and upwelling the water can be cold. We suggest a 5mm suit and hood.

Diving in the NORTH:
Best period is during the southeast monsoon, from late March to early May and late September to early November. Currents are often encountered during this time.
Water temperature: 24 – 29 C. Visibility: 20 – 25 m.

Diving in the SOUTH:
Best period is during the northwest monsoon, mid November to early March.
Water temperature: 21 – 27 C. Visibility: 10 – 15 m.
