Reference about Manta Point or Karang Makassar
North west from Komodo, near Batu Bolong and the two Tatawa , there is Karang Makassar: a strong current large 5-15 m deep shoal with just a few living corals and some rocks. This description is not very attractive for what actually is one of the most interesting places of Komodo archipelago.
In fact, it is just here that mantas use to come. For feeding maybe? For being cleaned? Or playing? Why the come here is not clear, but this is definitely the place to go to spot them. It is possible to spot them here anytime, although it is easier to see them at the high tide and in strong current condition.
We will start diving down to 8-10 m at about a few hundreds meters east from a green little Island that marks the south end of Manta Point. We will be drift by the current at a short distance from the bottom not deeper than 15 m.
With the high tide, although the current is strong the dive is not difficult. For inexperienced divers it is a perfect start for drift diving. In this strange place, that looks poor of species at first glance you can actually meet sea turtle, white or black tip sharks and huge trevallies. Recently bamboo sharks, the uncommon in this area, have been spotted here.
The visibility is generally good, exception made during the rainy season (January-February) Excellent Snorkelling with the same probabilità to see the mantas.
