Our usual Dive Day Trip starts around 08.30 in the morning. We board one of our two 14-meter double-decked wooden boats in Sebayur island, and we are greeted with complimentary tea and coffee, cookies and fruit. The dive sites are located about 10 minutes to one and half hours away from the Komodo resort pier.
On a diving trip from Sebayur, we can dive the sites of the North Komodo area: Sebayur, Castle and Crystal Rock, The Cauldron, Golden Passage, Batu Bolong, Manta Point, Tatawa Besar and Kecil, Pulau Tenggah, to name a few wonderful places to dive. Approaching the dive sites, divers can enjoy the beauties of the Komodo National Park archipelago with its amazing landscapes. Along the way we often meet dolphins, sometimes mantas. We dive the sites according to the conditions of the sea, especially of the tides and related currents that can be very strong in Komodo. We do two dives per day trip with the option of a third dive on demand. Usually we will be back at lunch time but in the longer day trips a lunch box is served on board.
Snorkelling in Komodo can be really a great experience. There are a number of amazing snorkelling sites starting from just out of the Komodo Resort Beach, it is about 1 km long and it will be appreciated even by the most demanding snorkelers.
The Komodo National Park has two distinctly different marine environments in the north and south of the park. And the conditions in the park change seasonally. There are over 50 regularly visited dive sites.
