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. 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. 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.
