    Although currents can be pretty strong, you can drift around to the protected lee, in the shade of the big rock, where you can find some shelter from the currents. Here you will see some beautiful coral gardens, rich in fan corals with tiny pigmy seahorses hiding, together with some octopuses, numerous interesting nudibranchs, small crabs and shrimps. Crystal Rock is a great macro dive compared to Komodo’s other dive sites.
