:: Leonie Hughes - Australia
We would like to thank Komodo Cruises for a wonderful Diving Holiday on board Mona Lisa. It was all we would wish for and more.
A special thanks to the new Manager Andy who welcomed us soon as we arrived with a much needed cold water and made sure our trip was a success. Thanks to the crew on board Mona Lisa who were always friendly and helpful.
The diving was brilliant and the food on board was superb. We both loved the Mona Lisa with all its charm.
We will post this on the tripadvisor site.
Thanks to all once again.

Komodo National Park has so many places of famous natural beauty for diving. but that you also can enjoy theviews of of small islands with sandy beaches are composed by clearly the wave of national parks. where you can even see the dragon patrolling the beach.
Komodo is unique because it offers two totally different marine environments. In the north we experience the warm clear waters that flow from the Flores and Banda seas. Typical of most tropical locations throughout the world. The hard coral reefs are extensive and in pristine condition. To the south, we encounter cooler waters that flow from deep in the Indian Ocean. It is not unusual to encounter whales, whale sharks, mantas, sunfish and other planktonic feeders during dives on the southern sites. Upwelling, caused by deep ocean currents colliding with the continental shelf force an endless supply of planktonic food towards the surface resulting in a rich coral gardens and an exceptional quantity of marine life. The confluence of these two distinct marine ecospheres is responsible for the remarkable diversity found in the waters of Komodo.
The waters that surround the island are turbulent and teeming with unparalleled marine life. A marine reserve, it is largely undocumented and remains largely unexplored. During our last voyage to Komodo we discovered several additional world class dive sites which were added to our list of many. The dives boasted schooling hammerheads and large schools of pelagic fish.
The park includes 132,000 ha of marine waters. It is one of the richest areas for coral biodiversity in Indonesia and one of the richest fish faunas in the world with an estimated 1000 species. On the reef the vibrant colour quantity of exotic fish life is spectacular. Riding the waterways are endless schools of pelagic fish, manta rays, whales, dolphins, even the occasional dugong. Below, the seabed is covered with a thick carpet of florescent corals and marine invertebrates - an underwater photographers paradise. The seas surrounding the park boil with feeding fish and marine mammals.
