Komodo National Park is renowned for its spectacular diversity of life underwater as well as its famous currents. We strongly suggest that you plan your trip according to the lunar cycle depending on whether you are anticipating an adrenaline filled trip or would prefer lesser currents. If you are looking to experience strong currents, choose dates that fall around new or full moons. Calmer waters are present in the middle of the cycles. You can check the predicted moon phase here:
