The Indonesian government declared Komodo and the surrounding islands to be a National Park in 1980 and it was declared a World Heritage Site and a “Man and Biosphere Reserve” by UNESCO in 1986. The park was initially established to protect the unique Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis), the world's largest lizard which can reach 3 meters long and weigh 90 kilogram.
The park is located in the straits between the islands of Sumbawa and Flores with strong tidal currents where there is an exchange of marine flora and fauna between the Indian and Pacific oceans.
The majority of the people in and around the Park are fishermen originally from Bima (Sumbawa), Manggarai,( Flores), or South Sulawesi. Those from South Sulawesi are from the Suku Bajau or Bugis ethnic groups. The Suku Bajau were originally nomadic and moved from location to location in the region of Sulawesi.

A magical underwater garden

Komodo National Park offers unparalleled opportunities for diving and snorkeling that rank among the best in the world.
The magnificent underwater gardens have an assortment of sponges, sea fans and corals covering every centimetre of available space. The topography consists of walls, reefs, pinnacles, caverns and boulders. In this environment we find more than 1000 species of fish and 300 species of corals.
The waters are also home to a variety of sharks, whales, dolphins, molluscs and unusual critters such as Sea Apples, Seahorses, nudibranchs, stargazers and frogfishes.
All year round we may spot a large number of manta rays. They do not fail to impress divers, snorkelers and photographers.

The Diving Season

mt_ignore mt_ignore

Diving around Komodo & Rinca is generally divided into a northern area and a southern area. This place is a meeting point of cooler waters to the south, and tropical waters to the north.
In the North of the Park, water temperatures range between 26 – 29°C. In the middle, the temperature ranges between 24 and 28°C. The temperatures are lowest in the South, ranging from 22-26°C.
Visibility is 20- 30 m.
The best time to dive the southern area is from late October to April. During the east monsoon, from April to October, we dive the northern area. October and November are the best months to organise longer trips in the park because divers can experience both the diving sites in the north and in the south.
Current conditions
The waters around Komodo are subject to strong tidal currents.
Pelagictour operates in the area since many years. Our skippers and guides are all PADI qualified dive masters and instructors, and extremely experienced in dealing with currents.
We are extremely careful selecting sites and we know which conditions are appropriate for all levels of experience.
