To satisfy your hobby, Komodo liveaboard snorkeling is the best and smart for your next adventure.
Why charter Komodo liveaboard snorkeling?
The harbor in Labuan Bajo is a community on the water, filled with all kinds of small boats and boats. You will be greeted by the boat owners as they each invited us to have a look. It’s certainly not difficult to find a liveaboard big enough for your needs. The touts selling group tours on Jl. Soekarno Hatta has offered much smaller ships than you can find in the harbor.
The bulk of boats in Labuan Bajo are Makassar-built traditional wooden watercraft. They have a distinct style, but they don’t provide the best living conditions, and their facilities are relatively basic. Ours included a small open kitchen area in the back, as well as a tiny saltwater toilet and shower. Komodo liveaboard snorkeling charter will be very profitable. You can save time reaching many snorkeling spots.
What makes Komodo snorkeling unique?
There are more fish and coral species in the Coral Triangle (which includes Indonesia, the Philippines, and Papua New Guinea) than anyplace else on the earth. Fortunately, the Komodo area is right in the heart of this historical hotspot! Indonesia boasts the most marine biodiversity of any country, with over 500 coral species and over 1000 fish species. Some of the greatest spots to witness this wonderful fauna may be found in Komodo National Park. Since the 1980s, Komodo has been protected from overfishing as a marine national park. This means there is plenty of fish to see as well as healthy coral.
Snorkeling Komodo is diverse; a snorkeling vacation here entails more than just swimming among the hard coral reefs. There are plenty of great reefs to explore, but there are also some rare encounters. When you rent Komodo liveaboard snorkeling, you have the freedom to choose the best snorkeling sites when the conditions are ideal. Let’s take a look at three of Komodo’s most unusual snorkeling experiences.
Meet The Manta Rays
Swimming with manta rays is one of life’s biggest bucket list experiences. Manta rays are truly ocean gentle giants. These innocuous filter feeders have wingspans of up to 5 meters and feed on plankton. The moniker “devil ray” was given to them because of their unusual morphology; yet, unlike their cousins, the stingray, mantas lack a stinger. There are various places in Komodo where you can see these incredible creatures, but Makassar Reef is the most reliable. When the rays are feeding, they will move gently back and forth at the surface, making snorkeling with them very easy. It’s sheer luxury to be able to get up and personal with these magnificent creatures.
Tatawa Besar, Siaba Kecil, and Makassar Reef are excellent places to experience this adrenaline sensation. As a safety measure, our attentive tender driver will follow the snorkelers as they drift along. It’s normal to go for a few more drifts once everyone has returned to the tender boat.
Are you ready to pump up your adrenaline? Due to currents bringing in a continual stream of plankton, Komodo boasts thriving coral reefs. At different times of the day, the currents can be fairly vigorous in different locations of the park. Thankfully, our expert crew has extensive knowledge of the tides and currents. The uninformed may find current daunting, but it’s actually a lot of fun. Drifting along a coral reef with the current pushing you along is the ideal way to enjoy the current. As the corals and fish fly by underneath you, a drift snorkel gives you the sensation of being in the air.
