Underwater Photographs From Komodo

Here are just a few images I took underwater while scuba diving off the coast of Komodo Island in Indonesia. We spent 6 days diving around the island and in the marine park via the Indo Aggressor.

The Komodo National Park Indonesia was established in 1980 and was declared a World Heritage Site and a Man and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1986. During the week of diving we found many interesting odd-shaped bottom dwellers such as Nudibranch’s, Shrimp, Frogfish, Sea Cucumbers, Crocodile Fish, Scorpionfish, and much more.

All of the images below were shot with a compact camera. My underwater camera set-up can be found here. I also shot a lot of video during the week. So far, I have posted my favorite 10 moments and I’ll post more highlights soon.

    1. It was a quite exciting moment. The turtle didn’t mind me getting closer and closer. I did turn off my video lights and use the nature light that was available.

    1. I use a Sealife DC2000 compact camera for photographs and a GoPro Hero 8 Black for video. The Sealife is water proof down to 60ft and is sold with a housing that is water proof down to 200ft or so. So, you don’t have to worry about flooding the camera. The Sealife licenses a Sony 1” image sensor.

  1. Your photos are so amazing. The pygmy seahorses are incredibly camouflaged. Love the sea cucumber and the leaf scorpionfish. Must have been difficult to spot some of these creatures.

    1. Thanks! The pygmy seahorses were probably the hardest to spot and then shoot. They are smaller than my thumb. Luck for our group, we had a very good dive guide. He knew which sea fans we should search during dives.
