Komodo Island Dive Sites
Off the north west point of Gili Banta, north east of Komodo, the White Angels steep reef and wall are at their best early morning when pelagic fish are out to feed on the bounty provided by the swift currents.
From a shallow sheltered bay the reef quickly drops to 35m and then beyond. You'll need to swim against a current over a short distance to gain the corner of the bay, but once around it's all plain sailing as you drift along assisted by the currents with queen mackerel, yellowtail tuna and grey reef sharks.
A quarter of an hour or so into your dive and you'll come into a shallower reef section in still water. Here you'll find a fantastic array of sponges and corals.
Lionfish, batfish and oval-spot butterflyfish are here, along with countless and colourful nudibranchs.
