Komodo National Park in Indonesia is world-renowned for its vast array of marine biodiversity and bucket list scuba diving.  Marcus Blake has spent the last 4 years based on the perimeter of the park as the dive operations manager at Komodo Resort and Dive Club.

I hosted an expedition for 10 guests at Komodo Resort and Dive Club in November 2019 and I was seriously impressed with the entire operation.  This excerpt taken from the resort's website perfectly describes the location...

Nestled in a sheltered bay fringed with white sand, the Komodo Dive Resort offers a unique and friendly environment to enjoy some of Indonesia's best diving. Imagine a place where you are welcomed as family on a paradisiac island in the middle of the Komodo archipelago surrounded by crystal clear waters and pristine reefs.

The Komodo region is renowned for being among the top dive sites on earth. Divers, snorkelers and photographers from all around the world come to the Komodo National Park to experience its very rich and unique marine biodiversity.

Komodo Resort is definitely one of my go-to places now and I look forward to leading further group expeditions through Nomadic Scuba in the not too distant future at the resort and on their new liveaboard the Komodo Sea Dragon.

During the podcast, we talk about Engel Tani (a dive pro and member of the resorts dive crew) and the dive team assisting a manta in distress and tangled in lines.  You can view the camera footage on Engel's Youtube channel.  If you watch the full video you can see how the Manta keeps returning to the divers until it is free. Awesome jobs guys, well done!
