Dive Site Map

Komodo Dive Sites

Our usual Dive Day Trip starts around 07.30 in the morning boarding one of our two 14 mt double decked wooden boats made for diving trips in Labuan Bajo main harbor. On board we have complimentary tea and coffee, sweets, fruits and mineral water. Most of the dive sites are located about one and half to two and half hours away from the harbor. During a day trip from Labuan Bajo we can dive the sites of North Komodo, very famous spots like Sebayur, Castle and Crystal Rock, The Cauldron, Golden Passage, Batu Bolong, Manta Point, Tatawa Besar and Kecil, Pulau Tenggah and so on, real underwater sanctuaries.

Approaching the dive sites divers can enjoy the beauties of Komodo National Park archipelago with its amazing landscapes. Along the way often we meet dolphins, sometimes mantas. We dive the sites according to the conditions of the sea and especially of the tides and related currents. We do two dives per day trip with the option for the third dive on demand. Lunch is included and served on board. Usually we get back to the harbor around four or five o clock in the afternoon. It’s possible to do a special combination with the visit of Rinca Island to see the famous Komodo Dragons after the two dives, in this case we will get back to Labuan Bajo in the late afternoon.

Diving in Komodo

Komodo Resort is a Padi Diving Resort; the Sebayur Diving Centre offer courses up to Pro Level in English, Italian, French, Spanish and Indonesian.

The daily tours are operated with two strong wooden boats of 13 and 14,5 meters of length, built for the purpose, with a stern platform and a total transport capacity of 25 divers, the cruising speed is 9 knots. The centre owns 25 brand new full equipment Mares and 100 aluminium 12 lt tanks.

Batu Bolong

Above the sea level Batu Bolong (hollow rock) is just a small rock between Tatawa Besar and Komodo, underwater it a big conic massive rock and turns out to be one of the most amazing dive sites of Komodo archipelago. Although the currents can be very strong, it is always possible to dive staying in the shade of the rock, that is either the Northern or the Southern side, depending on the direction of the current. It is highly recommended to follow the dive master, as on the East and West corners there can be strong downwelling currents. The southern side of batu Bolong gradually slopes, while the northern side is more rugged, with a wall, pinnacles and rifts.The dive starts close to the rock, on a 5-6 m deep coral garden, to get down to 28-30 m. The coral garden on the top hosts an impressive amount of invertebrates and thousands of colorful reef fishes. Big fishes , as sharks, napoleon wrasses, giant trevallies, big emperors and schools of fusiliers and surgeon fishes swim nearby the the steep walls.

Although the shallow water coral garden is relatively small, the site is interesting for snorkelers for the good chances to spot big fishes.
Visibility: good to excellent round the year.
Distance: 30 min by boat from Sebayur; 1h 30 min from Labuan Bajo.

Castle Rock

At Castle rock the current can be very strong. We recommend that only very experienced divers visit this site in strong current condition.Several pinnacles rising from a shelf 20-24 metres deep and reaching almost the surface up to 4 meters deep, offer an unforgettable view. Among the pinnacles huge schools of fusiliers and surgon fishes attract Giant and Jack trevallies, Spanish makarels and sometimes dolphins. White tip and black tip sharks patrol the area, which is often visited by eagle and mant rays. Most of divers wish to come back here again and again. The visibility is excellent.

In current conditions the dive entry point is in the blue at about 50-60 metri West-Southwest from the shallowest pinnacles. Then you dive down to 30-33 meters on the slope and start to go up to the shelf at about 24 meters. After having explored the shelf, where the action is, you will go up right in between the main pinnacles to have you safety stop at 5 meters.

Crystal Rock

At about 300 metri da Castle rock there is Crystal rock, whose tip is exposed at low tide. Similarly to Castle Rock, the current at Crystal rock can be very strong. Nevetheless a better shelter is found in the shade of the big rock. Besides the same fish species populating also Castle rock, there is a beautiful coral garden rich in fan corals in the Southwest side.In no current condition, we suggest to start the dive at 22-24m on the on the saddle connecting the main rock to a big pinnacle covered by fan corals. From there you can dive down to 27-30m to look for pygmeus sea horses on the fan corals. After having swimmed around a smaller pinnacle at about 22 meters, you will head to the main rock on its western side. From here we will go up, by reaching the main rock eastern side and you will make the safety stop at about 12 meters depth.

Position: northwestern tip of Komod island;Distance: 1h 15min by boat from Komodo Resort; 2h 20min from Labuan Bajo.

The Cauldron

Usually a drift diving along the channel between Gili Lawa Laut and Gili Lawa Darat. With the high tide we start from the south-eastern side of the channel and we cross it swimming among corals and school of fishes. On the other side of the channel we will be drift up on the edge of the cauldron. Once entered the cauldron we will dive down to the bottom watching the the wall covered by corals and crinoids. Inside the cauldron you will enjoy the amazing view of sharks and big pelagic fishes whirling round.We will go up along the northern side of the wall, we will be drift a bit longer to end up behind the western tip of Gili Lawat Laut where the boat will be waiting.
Great snorkeling, but suitable for expert swimmers, due to the strong corrents

Position: a few hundreds meters from Crystal Rock at the north-western tip of Komodo island; 1h 20min distant from Komodo Resort; 2h 25min distant from Labuan Bajo.

Toko Toko

This is the most northern dive site of Komodo National Park. Is a little rock island just in the middle of the sea exposed to currents that can be very strong. Dive site for expert divers, must be carefully checked before dive. Like any other drift dive it allows to meet big pelagic, sharks, some time mantas, and any other natural inhabitant of this sea. You can dive down till 40 meters. Follow the current depending where is running. Any direction is ok. When you need to begin your safety stop swim back close to the interesting shallow waters of the island and enjoy the reef. The west side of Toko Toko Island has a long finger extended towards west with very interesting and particular life. This make our first choice to drift east to west for this dive.

Golden Passage

This dive site is the channel that separates Gili Lawa Darat from Komodo Island. It’s a surprising drift dive better to be done in rising tide when the current pushes east to west. Get into the water in the shallow eastern bay and follow the current. The coral garden is beautiful and deeper you get more life you’ll find there awaiting for you. You will cross the channel about 20 meters deep surrounded by amazing landscapes always changing and fishes. Schools of sweet lips, trevally, reefs white and black tip sharks. Lots of turtles. In few occasion we met giant manta ray and dolphins. The dive ends at the opposite side of the channel where divers can enjoy the bright corals during the safety stop. The dive with opposite tide still very nice and the site is very suitable for snorkelers especially in the shallow waters of the bays.

Tatawa besar

At this site there is one of the most amazing coral gardens of Komodo archipelago, well worth more than one dive. This dive site can represent an alternative to Tatawa Kecil when the current is too strong. In this condition, the dive at Tatawa besar becomes a fun drift over a colourful underwater landscape for hundreds meters.

The dive entry is at about 6 meters depth, in front of a small beach facing the open sea at the northern side of the Island. You will start getting down heading Northeast and then you will follow the reef in East-Southeast direction at about 25 meters depth. This site is an unforgettable place for macro-photographers, as invertebrate species are the most interesting here. However you will easily spot napoleon wrasses, sea turtles and black tip fin shark. Usually in no current conditions you will return to the starting point, while with strong currents the boat will wait in the bay at the southern side of the island.

Visibility is good or excellent, exception made for January and February when the west monsoon can hit hardly the coast

Great place for snorkelling
Distance: 20 min by boat from Sebayur; 1h 30 min from Labuan Bajo.

Tatawa Kecil

A fantastic dive site where currents can be awful. Located North from Komodo, not far from Batu Bolong and South from Tatawa Besar, Tatawa Kecil is populated by an impressive variety of species. In the southern area at about 24 meters depth a small cave host a colony of pygmie seahorses. White tip fin sharks, grey sharks, giant trevallies and tuna fishes are commonly seen here. In the northern side, at about 22 meter depth, two big rocks give shelter to a cleaning station, mostly used by sweetlips. In no or weak current conditions, it is nice to have the safety stop in the northen side, while surrounded by surgeon fishes, big unicorn fishes and trevally.

Everybody can dive here during the tide change in the half moon periods, when the currents are weak. In all the other periods the extremely strong currents make this site suitable only for very experienced divers. Visibility usually excellent.

Wonderful snorkeling
Distance: 25 min by boat from Sebayur / 1 h 35 min from Labua Bajo.

Makasser Reef - Karang Makassar (Manta point)

North west from Komodo, near Batu Bolong and the two Tatawa , there is Karang Makassar: a strong current large 5-15 m deep shoal with just a few living corals and some rocks. This description is not very attractive for what actually is one of the most interesting places of Komodo archipelago.

In fact, it is just here that mantas use to come. For feeding maybe? For being cleaned? Or playing? Why the come here is not clear, but this is definitely the place to go to spot them. It is possible to spot them here anytime, although it is easier to see them at the high tide and in strong current condition.

We will start diving down to 8-10 m at about a few hundreds meters east from a green little Island that marks the south end of Manta Point. We will be drift by the current at a short distance from the bottom not deeper than 15 m.

With the high tide, although the current is strong the dive is not difficult. For inexperienced divers it is a perfect start for drift diving. In this strange place, that looks poor of species at first glance you can actually meet sea turtle, white or black tip sharks and huge trevallies. Recently bamboo sharks, the uncommon in this area, have been spotted here.

The visibility is generally good, exception made during the rainy season (January-February) Excellent Snorkelling with the same probabilità to see the mantas.

distance: 45 min from Komodo Resort toward south west.

Sebayur Central

Starting from the mooring, we head westward on the sandy bottom inhabited by a colony of garden eels. Sloping down towards the west, we will find at 25 meters depth some rocks covered by corals and visited by many fishes. Swimming towards the west along the slope on our right side, we reach a point where the slope becomes steeper and forms a wall covered by gorgonians, crinoids, sponges. Here we can easily find colourful flat worms, nudibranches, crocodile fishes, groopers lobsters, trigoni maculate and medium size tridacnas tridacne. Sometimes a sea eagle or a shark passes by. We make our safety stop on the coral garden in front of the rocky side of Sebayur.

Snorkeling: beautiful all around Sebayur Kecil
Distance: 5 min from Sebayur Besar (Komodo Resort); 1h 15 min from Labuan Bajo.

Sebayur West

The dive starts at 50-60 meters from the coast near the western tip of Sebayur Kecil, going down along the slope until we reach 15-18 meters, where a sandy saddle joins the platform of Sebayur Kecil to the cliff. We turn clockwise around the corner of the cliff and go east reaching a depth of 28 – 30 m along a beautiful wall covered by alcyonaria, swimming among schools of fusiliers and surgeon fish. This is the area of Sebayur Kecil where it is easier to spot big fishes, like sharks, trevallies, sea eagles and mantas. Going further east, at the end of the cliff, we will head to the slope which is about 15 meters away. We go east along the slope and end the dive with a safety stop not far from the rocks of central Sebayur. This dive is not possible during the moon changes, when the currents are strong.

Snorkeling: beautiful all around Sebayur Kecil
Distance: 10 min from Sebayur Besar (Komodo Resort); 1h 20 min from Labuan Bajo.

Mawan (50 minuts from resort)

This dive is suitable for expert divers if not during slack or in proper moon and tides conditions. Approach the site during rising tide only and you will discover one of the richest spots of Lintah Strait. From in front of the southern beach enter the water around the west edge and just follow the slope toward south. You will meet big fishes with a good chance to spot some mantas and macro critters as well. Indulge yourself here for the longest you can at a depth of 12 to 18 meters, then swim back towards the beach for the safety stop. You will be surprise for the number of species you spotted during a single dive. A peculiarity of Komodo waters, the amazing biodiversity.

Siaba Besar (30 minuts from resort)

Siaba Besar is another amazing dive of north Komodo. The beautiful coral garden lies along the western coast of the island and the site can be dived both in rising and falling tide providing that falling tide, with currents pushing towards south, is the best. In falling enter the water at the north western tip of Siaba Besar and just follow the current at a depth of 18 to 25 meters. As in any other spot with running waters large schools of pelagic hunt here around. Black tip sharks, barracudas, snappers, trevally, wrasses and turtles are usually spotted during this dive. More you go south and more the current can be stronger but never too much. The dive naturally ends at the south edge of the island where a colorful garden awaits divers during their safety stop that normally last much more than 3 minutes.

Siaba Kecil (30 minuts from resort)

Siaba Kecil is a drift dive running through amazing canyons that lies 15 to 30 mt deep. Ending point is always around a beautiful coral garden. Current here can be strong and the drift a real adventure for moderately expert divers, but beginners can enjoy the area too just hanging around the gardens avoiding the flying drift. Depending on currents divers can dive the site starting from the east or west cape of the little island and snorkelers can enjoy the site too if current is not too strong.

The canyons with spectacular caves and ANFRATTI are home of big pelagic fishes, sharks, barracudas and schools of giant trevally and sweet lips. Lots of turtles are usually found here. At the end of the drift there are rich coral gardens with a lot of life that are a paradise for macro lovers. Many critters live here around and the rare mandarin fish can be spotted too. Snorkelers will enjoy this spot as well.

Lonely Tree

South from Siaba near the coast of Rinca, a little rock with one tree is a landmark for a small eden for micro-photographers. The dive starts on the eastern side down to 24-25 m, where going east we will find a small cave and further on, where the slope becomes less steep, we will start to go up.

The slope is covered by small colourful coral formations inhabited by nudibranches and flatworms Pseudoceros. As the currents can be very strong it is recommended to dive here in the inter-tide periods, preferably around half a moon, when the currents are weaker and the inter-tide period is longer. Distance 40 min from Komodo Resort towards south- southwest.

Vainilu (1 hour from resort)

Vainilu, just at the exit of Loh Buaya bay, is one of the best muck dive of Komodo. Enter the water just in front of the beach at the west side of the bay. You will be surprise for the absence of corals and colors. Just sandy slope, broken coral and rubble. You may think you missed the spot but no, that’s the place, the best muck dive of Komodo. Explore carefully the bottom at 8 to 15 meters, you will find a collections of critters that no other sites in Komodo can offer. This is a real paradise for macro lovers a photographers. Frog fish, sea horses, any species of pipe fish, dragonets, mandarin fish and so on. Vainilu is a strange and different dive site but not to be missed if you think that “small is nice”.
