Diverse Diving in Komodo
in Komodo is home to some of the most diverse marine life in the world, this being one of many
reasons why it is such a unique place to come diving. From huge manta rays to
tiny pygmy seahorses, it seems like we get it all! So, what have we been seeing in the blue waters of Komodo recently?
Well, the Mantas have been out in full force, with divers having hour long dives surrounded by these wonderful creatures. Divers have knelt in the sand in awe as the huge rays have danced, rolled twirled and put on quite the show! You can never get bored of watching these stunning creatures.
But let's take a
moment to look elsewhere. We’ve had all kinds of other critters being
spotted by our eagle eyed guides recently. Seahorses have been spotted at several dive sites in the
Komodo National Park. (Did you know that they are actually endangered? sad times :( ) We’ve got several dive sites where we have encountered not only the ‘common’ seahorse, but also pygmy seahorses and thorny seahorses!
seen Wonderpus – a rare and elusive cephalopod that is top on the list for many
macro lovers! Great nudibranchs, blue ringed octopus, stunning schools of fish,
peacock mantis shrimps, eagle rays, leaf scorpion fish, hawksbill turtles, longhorn cowfish, tiny
little cuttlefish (take a breath!), huge moray eels, dolphins, dugongs and much more!
