Special Interest in Komodo. Besides the main spectacle of Komodo dragon, the National Park offers other challenging and breathtaking programs for those whose special interests such as hiking, diving, observation, snorkeling, and research.

Komodo Dragons

Manta Watching 

Once you watch the manta, the National Park has given us the following guidelines:

1.     Divers should stay on or near the bottom and snorkelers on the surface. An open water column is necessary to give the mantas room to maneuver.

2.     Avoid exhaling bubbles directly into the face of an approaching ray.

  • Do not ride, chase, touch, grab or harass the mantas!
  • Divers, photographers and videographers need to be considerate of the reef while watching mantas. Be careful not to kick or stand on coral or other living organisms.
  • Stay in group and the manta rays should provide plenty of good viewing opportunities.

The mantas are generally found in three different areas in the Park. A: Northeastern corner of Komodo Island “Karang Makassar” at rising tide; B: South Komodo Island “German Flag”; C: At Small Padar.
