Komodo offers scuba diver just about every type of tropical scuba diving one can imagine - from warm, calm and colourful shallow reefs alive with hundreds of colourful reef fishes and crammed with invertebrates, to current-swept deep cool water sea mounts, walls and pinnacles patrolled by sharks, tuna and other big fish. The variety of marine life in Komodo rivals one of the world's best dive destinations. Komodo is one of the world's most impressive areas with its marine diversity and you'll see loads of sea life especially critters here that you just won't see anywhere else.
Due to the many islands and relatively shallow seas between Flores and Komodo's west coast mean very fast and strong currents at tidal changes, especially at high tide when waters of the Pacific Ocean in the north flow through into the Indian Ocean to the south. The upwellings from the deep surrounding seas bring nutrients and plankton to keep these waters rich and well-fed, which makes perfect conditions for some spectacular scuba diving.
Komodo Island is also famous for its Komodo dragon monitor lizard, the largest lizard of the world. An alert and agile predator and scavenger that can reach 2.5 metres in length and 125 kg, there are about 1,100 inhabit the island.
