Current is moderate to strong at some dive sites, I would compare it to diving in Maldives. There are also dive sites with little current. I understand that the current conditions vary significantly by time of month and day. Overall, I think Komodo's reputation for strong current is unwarranted. Observe the normal safety procedures and you will be fine.
