Departing from Bima Bay, on Sumbabwa Island, just a short flight from Bali, the SY Indo Siren's first stop on this 10 night diving adventure, is the muck dive spot of the "Unusual Suspects", before sailing on to Sangeang Island with its dark volcanic sand and bubbles. By the fourth day we are diving within the National Park in the areas of Gilli Lawa Laut and Batu Bolong where strong currents can be experienced, bringing with them grey reef and white tip sharks and schools of snappers and fusileers. The Indo Siren stops at Rinca to make a walk with the dragons before cruising southwards to Nusa Kode. Across the strait on the south of Komodo Island we dive with numerous manta rays before heading northwards to Gilli Banta. Our final day is spent in Bima bay, where the calm waters offer the perfect spot for some kayaking or water skiing.
Castle and Crystal Rocks two submerged pinnacles, laying just off Gilli Lawa Laut. The pinnacles teem with life and attract large pelagics including eagle rays, grey reef sharks, Napoleon wrasse and scools of snappers and fusileers. All are seen here whilst we hang in the current and watch the show.
Cannibal Rock and Yellow wall are just two dive sites of the area of Nusa Kode. Colder water, as low as 20C/ 68F, can be experienced here and the water often carries a greenish tinge. But the diving reward far outweighs the need to extra thermal protection! It is here we find the microscopic 'lady bugs', along with rhinopias, frogfish, pygmy seahorses, mantis shrimps and an array of nudibranchs.
Manta Alley As the name suggests this site attracts the manta rays which come regularly to the cleaning stations. It is common to see several mantas lined up at one time. We watch as 'the black bird' gracefully swoops down or hangs effortlessly in the current.
The Unusual Suspects. A favourite for macro photography, with so many weird and wonderful creatures we will often dive this site more than once! Tiny coleman's shrimp and zebra crabs cling to fire urchins, frogfish can be found grouped together, ghost pipefish, harlequin shrimp, sea horses and mimic octopus make this site a real delight.
