Un­der­wa­ter Ko­modo

Action Asia - - INDONESIA -

The Cruise Di­rec­tor on the Du­nia Baru, Se­bastien Pierre, calls the area of the Coral Tri­an­gle around Ko­modo, “one of the most ex­cit­ing places on the planet” for divers. A glance at a div­ing map re­veals more than 50 recog­nised spots con­cen­trated in a small and ac­ces­si­ble area of some of the world’s most colour­ful and bio­di­verse reef. Pro­files range from shot­gun dives through fast-flow­ing chan­nels to gen­tle drifts while the area also of­fers en­coun­ters with large pelagic fish, dugongs, cetaceans and schools of manta rays and sharks. Rare sight­ings have in­cluded whale sharks and even the meg­amouth (Me­gachasma pela­gios) – one of the rarest sharks in the world with only 60 global sight­ings ever.
