Castle Rock: it is another Komodo highlight. It is a huge underwater pinnacle, with its top at 4 meters under the surface, which stretches down to below 30 meters, covered in coral and reef fish. The current can be very strong at this site, but this doesn’t affect the visibility, which is excellent. You can see pretty much everything in Castle Rock, there is huge variety of fish species, such as grey reef sharks, white tip and black tip sharks, eagle rays, schools of tuna and barracudas, giant trevallies, groupers, giant jacks, wrasse, manta rays, the occasional dolphin and many more. Not only that, as the current is generally much stronger at the surface than in the deeper waters, you will see a splendid macro life as well.
Crystal Rock: it is another remarkable dive site in Komodo National Park. Crystal Rock is subject to strong currents and you will always find some action while diving in here. This dive site is recommended for experienced divers. Crystal Rock is a seamount in open water, covered by soft corals, sponges and beautiful gorgonians, that becomes exposed at low tide making the tip of the pinnacle visible from the surface. This site has very clear water with crystal clear visibility. You will see some grey reefs sharks, white tip and black tips sharks, as well as schools of bat fish, giant trevallies, schools of tuna, eagle rays, snappers, huge schools of fusiliers, napoleon wrasse, groupers, angel fish, parrotfish, thousands of anthias, schools of yellow-ribbon sweetlips and may more. Although currents can be pretty strong, you can drift around to the protected lee, where you will see some beautiful coral gardens, rich in fan corals with tiny pigmy seahorses hiding, together with some octopuses, numerous interesting nudibranchs, small crabs and shrimps. Crystal Rock is a great macro dive compared to Komodo’s other dive sites.
As you can see, Komodo National Park has an enormous diversity, for every taste and every level, so don’t wait any longer and come and join us and enjoy this one in life time experience!
