How your day unfolds:

A typical dive day starts when you meet at the dive centre in Labuan Baju at 7:15 am. The boat departs around 7:30 am from the harbour and the 60 to 120 minutes ride out to Komodo. The first dive is usually around 9 or 10 am am and lasts for 60 minutes (or to 50 bar). Snacks and hot drinks are served during the surface interval, then the second dive takes place after a one hour surface interval. A fresh cooked lunch is taken on the boat after the second dive.

On 3-tank trips, the third dive takes place around 1 or 2 pm. If you are on the trekking trip, then the boat sails over to Rinca Island for the Komodo dragon trek at 1 or 2 pm. The trek usually lasts for one hour, then the boat sails back to harbour. Depending on the program you are back in town between 4 and 6 pm.

What makes this day trip unique?

We work with a daytrip provider that is a highly professional and experienced outfit, and a trusted name in scuba diving in Komodo. The dive centre is PADI 100% AWARE (Aquatic World Awareness Responsibility and Education) Partner, an organisation committed to protecting the underwater world. They operate daily diving and snorkelling trips around the islands of the Komodo National Park.

The boat is 18m in length with a 6-cylinder engine, capable of reaching a speed of 8 knots. The dive deck can accommodate 16 divers plus guides, and has fresh water rinse tanks. There is also a bathroom and kitchen. The sundeck is partially shaded and has mattresses and beanbags. There is also a digital tablet on board specifically to help with marine species identification. To comply with safety regulations, the boat has emergency oxygen on board, life jackets, life buoys, radio, GPS, hand phones and a first aid kit.

Besides the unique Komodo dragons and the rugged landscape, the Komodo National Park is a UNESCO world heritage and is also known as one of the best dive locations in the world. From pristine corals, manta rays, sharks, turtles, dolphins, dugongs and giant pelagic animals to tiny pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs, shrimps and frogfish, you’ll find the diversity of marine life jaw-dropping. The underwater topography is as diverse as the marine life. Dive sites vary from gentle slopes to walls, channels, flat bottoms, pinnacles, overhangs and caves, covered by hundreds of different species of hard and soft corals.

This location is known for strong current, if you’re an advanced and adventurous diver, you can test your mettle here. But if you prefer calm and relaxed dives, you can opt for beautiful and sheltered reefs. Komodo National Park has it all! Watch our video library which shows some of the marine life you will encounter when diving in Komodo.

Note: these scuba day trips listed above are available to qualified divers only. If you have non diving partner who would like to get a taste of Komodo and its underwater world then we can also organize introductory dives and courses.
