You can go scuba diving in Komodo all year round because every month of the year promises top quality scuba diving experiences in Komodo National Park.
April – November is considered dry season, where the weather is the best.
In our opinion, April, May & June are the best months for scuba diving in Komodo National Park.
The water is cooler (average 20 to 25°C) in the South of the National Park and warmer and clearer in the north (average 25 to 28°C). Visibility can reach 30+ metres.
July and August, have cooler oceans temperature, however, they are more nutrient-rich which reduces visibility but as a result brags of blooming marine life and massive schools of manta !.

Komodo Dive Sites
Most wanted dive sites from customers! This dive is the main location in Komodo to find manta rays – often as many as 10 or 20.
Batu Bolong – Hollow Rock
It is a summit / pinnacle that descends to 75 meters, between Tatawa and the east of the main island of Komodo to the west of it. Located north of Komodo, this dive site is a real fish festival.
Tatawa Besar (“Big Tatawa”), some 30 km east of Komodo’s. Turtles seem to be everywhere and watch out for the blacktip reef sharks, giant trevallies, barracudas. Manta rays also seen occasionally.
Siera Besar – The macro paradise
Located near the dive site Manta Point, this dive site is an excellent spot for the macro dive. It is even probably the best that can be found in Komodo with its flamboyant, fish pegasus, frogfish and hornet ghospipe fish, stingray and stargazers.
3 sisters – The macro paradise
Located near Pulau Padar Island, this dive site has a magnificent topography including three pinnacles from 5 m to 40 m with a very gentle current. You will find benches of mobulas, white and black tips sharks and benches of blue surgeon.
Castle Rock, Komodo
One of the top sites in the Komodo National Park. Schools of fish as far as you can see. Giant and big eye trevallies hunt in big numbers, grey and white tip reef sharks in between. Also a spot where dolphins appear regularly!
It’s best to dive the west coast of this island to explore its vibrant shallow coral gardens full of anthias. Its caves and boulders are perfect harbors for larger groupers.
Submerged reef with often strong currents, which attracts a good number of fish such as schools of jacks, rainbow runners and thousands of anthias. Grey and white tip reef sharks patrol the deeper part of this magnificent reef.
It is located just in front of the old dragon feeding station in the eastern part of Komodo Island, directly across the bay from Komodo Village. Thousands of fish of every color and shape are here including yellow damsels, regal angelfish, checkerboard wrasse, masked unicorn fish and schooling reef fish such as striped fusiliers and Frogfish also hang around the wall, blending in colorfully with their host sponge and surrounds.
Torpedo Alley – The macro
Near Cannibal Rock dive sites, this dive site is an excellent spot for macro diving. Black sand and reef patches are a perfect habitat for ghost pipefishes, frogfishes, nudibranchs and a huge variety of crustaceans and octopus.
Banta Wall, Komodo
Wall located on the north side of Gili Banta. it’s full of beautiful gorgonian fans and hard corals, lot of fish life in all varieties along the wall. Often Manta rays can be seen around.
Cannibal rock, Komodo
Named by famous Divemaster Larry Smith, this is a must to dive if we plan to dive around Rinca. Beautiful corals all around this submerged reef with plenty of cute nudibranchs, frogfish and pigmy seahorses. Also offers proper fish action, as this reef sits in the middle of a channel where plankton are present.
