An insider's guide to Indonesia's hot spot for diving
Alila Purnama Captain Mario tells it all

An accomplished kite surfer, surfer and diver, Alila Purnama's Captain Mario Gonzalez has cumulated extensive knowledge of the best dive sites in Indonesia and West Papua in his years of sailing the Indonesian waters. From night diving with Eupalette sharks in Raja Ampat to driftdiving with schools of snappers and jack fish in the Komodo Islands, Mario shares with us, the ultimate insider’s guide to the best diving in Indonesia.

Gili Selang is located in the south side of Amed, on the east coast of Bali, famous for its hard and soft underwater coral just below the water’s surface. Gili Selang is one of the most challenging sites in Bali but excellent for experienced divers that are keen to see pelagic fish. With a visibility of 20-25m and water temperature between 20-30°C, divers can expect to see yellow margin morays, schooling big-eyed giant trevally, cuttlefish and pygmy seahorses on the gorgonian sea fans.

"Shotgun" as the locals call it, is an intense and high adrenaline dive, perfect for drift diving, with amazing changes of scenery between Gili Lawa Darat and Gili Lawa Laut, north of Komodo. Named the "Cauldron" because of the bowl shaped drop off, along the eastern end of the site, the name "Shotgun" refers to the currents that can reach peaks of 10 knots as the water squeezes into the narrow space between both islands. The currents bring the micro-organisms from deep waters, feeding the small fish, which in turn creates the perfect hunting ground for the big-fish: black and white tip sharks, giant trevallies, schools of snappers, and jack fish, fusiliers fish and even mantas and dolphins.

The water comes alive at night allowing divers to see the ocean from a totally different perspective. Some coral reefs can’t be seen in daylight, it’s only when darkness descends that they appear. The Orange Tube Corals glow orange in darkness and the Sea Pens look like little brown furry leaves. Night diving in Waigeo is extraordinary as divers will see creatures rarely encountered anywhere else in the world, including the Eupalette shark, which is brown with dark spots and prefers to walk with its fins rather than swim. Divers are also guaranteed to spot wobbegong sharks, blue ring octopus, toadfish and crocodile fish in almost every dive.

Divers will always see wild dolphins, white, black and silver tip sharks, Napoleon Wrasses with schools of jack fish, groupers and barracuda, to joining them for a swim. Castle Rock is northeast of Komodo Island, located close to Crystal Rock. The beauty of marine life in this area is remarkable and the coral slope is simply beautiful. Due to the strong currents, this dive should always be performed in slack tide and divers should never go deeper than 20 or 25 metres.

Kri Reef has secured a place in the Guinness Book of World Records thanks to the 374 types of marine life that can be found here, including barracuda, turtles, tuna, groups of giant trevally and large schools of bumphead parrot fish – divers can even see them crushing the corals with their huge teeth. Here, divers will find the healthiest coral reefs in the world and if lucky will witness sweet-lips hordes in tens as they pass by. To have the best possible dive, stay deep in this location to avoid strong surface currents.
