Siaba Kecil is known as the fastest drift dive in the Komodo region and divers should only attempt this if they are an advanced diver. It is worth diving in other areas to build up your experience to then be able to conduct this dive. The marine life is spectacular and there are many stunning areas of coral.
The dive site is made up of a canyon that is found at 15 metres to 30 metres deep. There is an area around the canyons with a patch of garden corals found on a shallow plateau. These are protected from the currents and beginners can dive this part of the area so long as they avoid the sections of currents. Whilst doing the drift dive, divers will be moved along the reef and will spot many small caves. These caves are home to many sweetlips, batfish, and angelfish that divers can see if they stop to explore the caves. This can be quite tricky and divers should use diving gloves or dive hooks to protect themselves and the corals during the dive. The reef is full of many damselfish, anthias, butterflyfish, and other reef fish common in the area.
Divers will also be able to spot schools of giant trevally, barracudas, and many sharks. The overhangs are often home to the rare bamboo sharks. Most divers end up in the shallow reef plateau and here divers can spot turtles, mandarin fish, and many other smaller critters.
