Great diving in Komodo

Great diving in the Komodo area, the reefs are very healthy and there is a good abundance of fish, turles and reef sharks. The boat is very comfortable and the crew is smiling and kind. There is a very good local dive guide on board (Rama) and it was great diving with him. Food was usually very food. Great stable boat to dive this area where the waters can be rough.

Feeding frenzy below and above the water.

Giant trevally feeding frenzy at Batu Bolong, some great manta encounters, lots of frog fish, and high current drift dives. Oh! Did I mention the great food?
