The Cauldron

(North Komodo)

A legendary drift diving along the channel between Gili Lawa Laut and Gili Lawa Darat, swimming among corals and incredible scenarios.

Needful ingredient to fully appreciate this dive is the falling tide. In the initial part we find ourselves in a splendid coral garden densely populated by giant sweetlips, snapper, nudibranchs and occasionally octopuses. At a certain moment we will arrive near the Cauldron, a huge circular amphitheater surrounded on both sides by walls covered with corals, colorful sponges and seafans; we will also enjoy the amazing view of sharks and big pelagic fishes whirling around.

The constantly increasing current will lead us to the famous “Shot Gun”, which will shoot us in a channel where we will cross mantas and giant trevallies and then finish in the nearby coral garden. Suitable for expert divers, due to the strong currents.
