It was both Yogi and my first time to see the underwater world of the World Heritage Site Komodo National Park. About 15 years ago Yogi spent time here on land, photographing Komodo dragons. Not much was known about underwater Komodo, and there were few dive operators then as is the case now. But over the past decade, we heard and read much about this place —the mad currents, the amount of fish, the pristine underwater wilderness that it was—and still we never managed to get here, until now.
Komodo is special. Its geological location and exchange of tide currents from the Indian Ocean and the Pacific has made it so. It now ranks as one of our top and favourite tropical dive destinations.
