Located in the channel between Komodo Island and Gili Lawa Darat, Golden Passage is a fantastic dive site within the Komodo National Park.

Often described as a kaleidoscope, the site is a drift dive that will take you past massive varieties of corals, landscapes, and marine life. It is best done when the current is going from east to west and it is a lovely drift dive done at a depth of about 20 meters. If you venture further down, the marine life becomes more and more varied. There are many different anemone species, glassfish, and a huge variety of shrimp can be spotted.

The highlight is the ever-changing scenery that is filled with sharks, trevally, sweetlips, and hopefully, many turtles. It is a great place to spot barracuda as well and the occasional manta ray, devil ray or even an eagle ray can be seen as they swim through the passage on their way to their feeding grounds in North Komodo.

The other end of the channel marks the end of the dive, but the safety stop will be a pleasure as you can still take in the marvelous coral gardens, colorful rocks, and lovely soft corals.
