Shark Diving in Komodo National Park: Seven Seas Liveaboard Trip

As the top predator on the reefs across the Coral Triangle, the presence (or absence) of sharks says a lot about how healthy the ecosystem is.

Komodo is home to a good population of reef and pelagic shark species, and we were often lucky enough to come across one (or more) on our dive trip on the Seven Seas in July / August 2017.

White tip reef sharks were often crusing the dropoff areas of the wall dives, while black tips and grey reef sharks were more often found deeper underwater. One morning we dropped below 30 meters underwater and found a decent aggregation of all three species in search of a meal. Many of the photos from this gallery are from that morning - one of the most memorable dives on the entire trip.

Check out the gallery below to see the photo highlights, or see the all the photo galleries from our Komodo liveaboard dive trip - from scuba diving, to aerial photos, to freediving, to the incredible wildlife in this amazing place. You can also see galleries from other Seven Seas liveaboard dive trips - my absolute favorite way to explore the awesome natural beauty and unique cultures of Indonesia.
