Tatawa Besar

Tatawa Besar, located in the northeastern part of Komodo Island in Indonesia, is a popular dive site known for its easy drift in shallow waters. While it is sometimes classified as a drift dive, the current here is typically mild to moderate, making it suitable for divers of all levels - beginners, advanced, and experts. With a maximum depth of 30 meters and visibility up to 18 meters, Tatawa Besar offers divers a vibrant and colorful reef teeming with diverse marine life, including Manta Rays, turtles, grey reef sharks, white tip and black tip reef sharks, eagle rays, cuttlefish, oriental sweetlips, surgeons, nudibranch, orang-utan crabs, and lobsters. This site serves as an excellent alternative to Tatawa Kecil and Batu Bolong if the currents in those areas are too strong. Dive enthusiasts can explore Tatawa Besar throughout the year, with the rainy season being a particularly optimal time to encounter Manta Rays, sharks, and Napoleon wrasses.
