Manta Alley is one of the more relaxing dive sites on the south coast of Komodo Island. It is known as the ultimate destination for manta divers to experience a gratifying dive while in the company of the mantas. Therefore, it is not surprising to find that Manta Alley is a preferred dive site besides gaining the reputation of being one of the top manta sites in the country. As it is known to be a famous breeding spot for the mantas, divers and manta lovers alike can expect to dive with the companion of a large number of mantas in any one dive. The main species of mantas are the Reef Mantas and the Oceanic Mantas, but rare sightings of the Black Morph Mantas are still possible at certain times. Although the mantas are widely regarded as the main icon of Manta Alley, visitors will not be deprived of a wide variety of marine life. Manta Alley is the home of other marine life, including the magnificent reef sharks and trevallies among many.
Sea currents around Manta Alley can be fairly strong, and it is regarded as a dive site for experienced divers. Due to the strong currents, factors such as water temperatures and visibility could be affected. However, fret not, as the dive site is full of mantas, and this sole reason is more than enough to serve as an unforgettable diving experience. Drift diving is made more comfortable with the existence of strong currents where a steady current allows you to float through a vast alley, with up to 20, beguiling manta rays circling around at once! Head over to Manta Alley from December to February for this unique diving experience.
