Diving and Hiking in Komodo National Park

“On the flight in we could see the Tambora crater left by the most powerful volcanic eruption in recorded history. In 1815, the ash caused the sunless summer in Europe and the US. The crater is 7km wide and 800m deep.”

The Komodo Islands are a prehistoric paradise with countless uninhabited islands jutting from the ocean.

Our trip consisted of eight dives and four treks.

The most fun dive was a drift through a channel called the ‘Cauldron’. The current was comparable to a theme park ride. If you turned your head the wrong way, it could rip your mask right off. Good times.

The trek we did on Rinca Island through Komodo dragon territory was fun. Great to see such untouched wilderness and the amazing creatures in their natural environment.
