Komodo is located in the heart of The World’s Marine Bio-Diversity, also called the Coral Triangle. Its unique position between Pacific Ocean and India Ocean attracts all directions of currents, which brings a lot of nutrients to its marine life here, thus not only making it one the best places for diving, but also one of the most challenging ones. For experienced divers, Komodo is a perfect place to improve the diving skills against the unpredictable currents. However, it doesn’t mean beginners can’t dive here. Quite on the contrary, Komodo is also a good place for new divers and learning how to dive, as there are some easy dive sites that are good for drift dive, deep dive, underwater navigation and boat dive etc. It all depends on how the instructors and dive guides lead you there. It’s important to know the best timing jumping into each dive site, especially during full moon and new moon.
