As you may already know, Komodo National Park is famed for its dive spots. The islands are on the channel between the Indian and the Pacific Ocean. The water is warm, and it is an ideal landscape for sea life. Did you know that there are over 1000 species of fish in this beautiful archipelago?
When taking a liveaboard to the Komodo, you will be enchanted by the idea of diving. What isn’t there to like? Swimming with dolphins, discovering neat coral gardens, and floating euphorically… It all sounds like a dream.
One of the most famous dive spots is just off the edge of Gili Lawa and Komodo Island. Due to its particular location that attracts the beautiful Manta Rays — It is named Manta Point (Karang Makassar). When diving in Manta Point (Karang Makassar), you will see groups of Manta float by in 3s and 4s. This site is delightful, as you can watch them as they gracefully fly through the water. The sandy bottom and weak current create a great spot for drifting slowly on the seafloor. Luckily, this area is blessed with amazing clarity. You will be enamored with how peaceful this spot is.
