We celebrated 70th Indonesia independence day on this trip with the guest from Prodive,South Africa,Jeremy,Monika and Jeslyn.We spend all the trip in the north of Komodo with great visibility and fish action.

After check dive,we started the real diving in Komodo with Batu Bolong and some of the guests came up and rated this is one of the top ten dive in the whole dive logged. We're lucky to see the baitball of Fusilier in Batu bolong. The day following we tried our luck on Castle rock and we didn't disappointed. Mild current and lots of fish! Gigantic school of Surgeon fish,Bluefin trevally,Bannerfish,Batfish and Giant trevally.

We have an amazing baitball action as you can see in our highlight trip video.The massive fusilier baitball with school of Giant trevally and Bluefin trevally created a great show underwater.Just another great dive in Castle rock!!!

We spend 4 days in North of Komodo and Channel area. Lots of nice stuff we can find this trip. Robust ghostpipefish, Leaf scorpionfish,Massive Spanish dancer in nightdive,etc.The last day we want to find Manta ray for our guests and we did it in Manta on the Moon and Mawan. Happy ending for everyone.
