What to expect
The Komodo Resort Diving Club is a PADI dive resort offering daily boat dives for certified divers as well as dive courses up to dive master level in English, Italian, French, Spanish and Indonesian.
The daily dive trips are operated via three wooden dive boats 13m, 14.5m and 19m in length, all custom built for diving with a stern platform and the largest taking 25 divers. The cruising speed is 9 knots. The dive centre owns 25 brand new sets of Mares dive equipment and 100 12L aluminium tanks. Nitrox is available.
The resort’s own house reef offers snorkelling only. All diving activities are done by boat. The daily dive boat departs at 8am for 2 dives and returns to the resort for lunch at around 1pm. In the afternoon at around 3pm, divers have the opportunity to do a 3rd tank dive or snorkel on the house reef. A night dive is also offered in the evening. For new guest arrivals, there is a check-out dive scheduled on the first afternoon at a beautiful dive site close to the resort. Dive groups are limited to maximum 5 divers for each guide. Before each dive there is a detailed dive briefing.
The dive day trip starts at 8am. Guests board one of two double-decked wooden dive boats in Sebayur Island, and are greeted with complimentary tea and coffee, cookies and fruit. The dive sites are between 10 and 90 minutes away from the Komodo Resort pier, though along the way divers can enjoy the beauty of the Komodo National Park archipelago with its amazing landscapes, and might meet dolphins, or sometimes see mantas.
From Sebayur, you can easily dive the sites of the North Komodo area: Sebayur, Castle and Crystal Rock, The Cauldron, Golden Passage, Batu Bolong, Manta Point, Tatawa Besar and Kecil, Pulau Tenggah, to name but a few of the wonderful dive sites. Sites are selected according to conditions and tide, as the resulting currents can be very strong in Komodo. Guests can do two dives per day trip with the option of a 3rd dive. Usually the dive boats will be back at lunch time but during a full day trip, a lunch box is served on board.
This remote and tranquil little dive resort is the ideal place for all divers who want to dive and explore Komodo National Park and its surrounding islands. This can be an extension to a liveaboard cruise or a vacation in its own right.
