A Manta Rays' Sanctuary
There is no doubt that one of the main attractions of Komodo National Park are the majestic Manta Rays. Komodo National Park is one of the largest sanctuaries for Manta Rays and one of the few places where it is possible to encounter this beautiful species. Here you will find the perfect place to encounter Manta Rays at their real habitat, either diving or snorkeling.
One of the most common dreams of divers is to have an encounter with these sublime manta rays, being side by side with them. This dream can definitely come true in Komodo National Park, especially because despite what people may think, manta rays are not dangerous at all. Although they are quite big and have a tail like stingrays, manta rays do not have a poisonous sting and they are not aggressive at all. They are known for being quiet, peaceful and having a curious behavior, approaching divers, putting on impressive acrobatic shows.
