Diving Komodo National Park Fabulous Diversity, Above and Below Sea fans, soft corals, sponges, basket stars, sea apples, and feather stars cover all available substrate. Some liveaboard trips to Komodo National Park begin and end in Bali, diving around Lombok and the north coast of Sumbawa along the way.
Some depart from areas closer to Komodo and involve a short domestic flight from Bali. Either way, if you're going to Komodo, your first stop is Bali. Visibility is excellent at m ft. The reefs are healthy and diverse with large stands of corals and exotic animals.
The diving is easy and night diving is good. A Yellow fish by ambai wetsuit with hood, at least, is recommended.
The cooler Indian Ocean meets the warmer Flores Sea in the Sape and Lintah Straits, creating one of the richest marine environments in the world. Nutrient-rich upwellings rise while warmer waters sink dropping visibility to m ft.
This process creates currents, whirlpools and thermoclines bringing in scores of fishes and filter-feeding invertebrates.
The reef is dramatic with drop-offs, outcrops, canyons, pinnacles and boulders, bursting with color. Sea fans, soft corals, sponges, basket stars, sea apples, and feather stars cover all available substrate. July and August are good times to go, but windy conditions sometimes prevent diving at the exposed southern sites.
There's a host of unexplored sites too. Mentjang Wall, on south Sangiang Island, drops off to 20m 66ft and turns into a black sand slope. The wall is beautiful with soft corals, crinoids and basslets. The slope harbors a fascinating assortment of nudibranches and other invertebrates.
Small World is an excellent macro spot with snake eels, ghost pipefish, bubble shells, and stargazers. All have current, loads of fishes and good coral cover.
Fishes include sweetlips, bumphead parrotfish and Napoleon wrasses. Pink Beach takes its name from the bits of broken red corals that litter the beach. The water is noticeably cooler here and the marine life is excellent. Huge boulders covered with soft corals go to 30m ft.
Sea apples and toxic sea urchins appear for the first time. Mobulas frequent the reef. On the south side of Padar island is a series of rock pillars that extend underwater called Pillarsteen.
The huge rock faces are covered with invertebrate growth and lead to canyons and caverns. There's good fish life too. Indonesia has many beautiful dive sites, but there is only one Cannibal Rock!
There are many beautiful dive sites in Indonesia but there is only one Cannibal Rock.
This is a big rock with profuse and colorful reef life. There are frogfish, Miamira nudibranches, huge basket stars and bright red sea apples. It's a hub of activity any time but especially around sunset as the day and night animals switch places.
Baitballs, sharks, tuna, snappers, groupers, eagle rays, reef fishes—they're all here. Night dives are incredibly colorful.Her most recent books are Fish in a Dwindling Lake, a translation of short stories by Ambai (); A Second Sunrise, poems by Cheran, translated and edited by Lakshmi Holmström & Sascha Ebeling (); Wild Girls, Wicked Words, a translation of poems by four Tamil women ().

Dive Maluku & Banda Islands. Unlike other areas, with high populations and subsequent pressure from fishing, the Bandas' relatively small human population has been a blessing for divers - offering a vibrant, healthy reef system with fish life in incredible numbers along with huge gorgonians and sponges and some truly monumental hard corals. Yellow Fish Ambai’s “Yellow Fish” is a short story about a woman’s leisure on the beach and her discovery of a fish. She watches the fishermen return to shore with their catches and sort through them, she spots an unwanted, helpless, yellow fish thrown away on the sand. A yellow fish (with black dots) slips off the net (we don’t know if the yellow fish was male or female!) and Anu, a young woman gets the fish. Anu feels sorry for the fish. The fish’s opening its mouth for water reminds Anu of Jalaja – her daughter who died recently.
