Komodo Scuba Diving
End Of The World
Tala is a tiny, angular island in Langkoi Bay, just south of the southernmost part of Komodo Island, offering some excellent dive sites.
It is one of the most southern Komodo liveaboard diving sites. The inner passage between Tala and Komodo proper is shallow and has ripping currents, but the southern point of the island has The End Of The World to the west in very deep water.
Here is a sheer wall of rock, broken up by some nice cuts, overhangs, and sandy shelves down to about 40 metres, and from there on a flat, black plane. There are white-tip sharks, rays, morays and rich coral growth in the cuts and shelves.
The flat areas of the wall are covered with extensive fields of marigold cup corals, a beautiful and vivid effect against the dark rock.
