Diving Komodo with dragon dive

Dragon Dive is well known worldwide for being a professional, secure, quality-oriented dive shop that will guarantee a fun and safe day diving. Our unique and experienced staff are trained to offer the best dive trips in the world-renowned Komodo National Park.

To ensure safety our dive groups are always kept small with a maximum of 4 to 5 divers per group. We arrange diving groups according to certification and experience level to make sure both new and experienced divers leave us feeling satisfied.

As passionate divers ourselves we are well aware of the impact on this fragile ecosystem and our mission to protect this underwater haven is at the heart of what we do. We have opted to use wooden slow boats instead of speed boats due to the lower emissions and increased comfort for guests. We always provide briefings on how to enjoy the national park with minimal impact on the environment.

As we spend a lot of time underwater here we also engage with local conservation groups to document the wildlife, in particular our incredible local manta ray population. We also encourage our dive guides and instructors to remove any rubbish we may come across on the dive sites.

A diving day in komodo

We start the day early when diving central and north Komodo dive sites so that we can jump in before the other dive boats also leaving Labuan Bajo. A typical day would look like this:

06:45 – Meet at Dragon Dive Hotel
08:30 – First dive
11:00 – Second dive
12:30 – Lunch
14:00 – Third dive
17:30 – Return to Dragon Dive Hotel

As well as a healthy Indonesian lunch we provide snacks on board like donuts, freshly baked bread and bananas. Also included on the boat are refreshments such as water, tea, coffee and soft drinks.

Our goal is to provide you with amazing memories underwater, but we also hope that you enjoy your time on the boat socialising with other guests and our diving guides and boat crew.

Diving komodo national park

The diving in Komodo National Park is world-class. Divers here are treated to an incredible variety of species from unique macro to giant marine life, so there is something for every diver to enjoy.

The national park sits in the heart of the coral triangle so we can explore an incredibly diverse range of over 200 species of coral. There isn’t many places in the world which can boast such healthy reefs, and the colour and sheer abundance of life is sure to impress even the most experienced divers.

The waters that surrounds Komodo and Rinca islands boasts a population of over 1000 manta rays as well as eagle rays, devil rays and marbled rays. We often see several reef shark species, as well as over a 1000 species of reef fishes. If you are lucky you may even spot elusive marine mammals such as dolphins and dugongs.

For the divers who are excited by the weird and wonderful, Komodo is also home to a huge variety of small marine life. The reefs and sands of Komodo are home to some rare macro species such as hairy shrimps, flamboyant cuttlefish, frogfish, a huge range of nudibranchs, a few different types of octopus and so much more!
