Karang Makassar

This dive site is all the way down the South of the Park. Keep in mind that the water temperature can drop down to 22-23 degres since it opens up straight onto the Indian Ocean... The visibility too can drop to just a few meters as the water turns into a plankton soup! But the more plankton, the thicker the soup, the more manta rays! Reef mantas but also oceanic manta rays come in here to get fed and cleaned by the reef's small fishes. You drift along nice and smooth but don't drift too far from the bottom or out to the deep, you might miss the 'trains' that the rays form when there are dozens of them in one spot!

A must dive in Komodo!
