Diving At Castle Rock – Komodo Scuba Video

My friend and ace videographer Ai Futaki has put together another short video from our Komodo liveaboard trip – this time at the amazing dive site Castle Rock

This video was shot by Ai Futaki at Castle Rock in the Komodo National Park in September 2008. We were on a liveaboard on the S/Y Siren (trip report coming soon).

Ai is a freediving instructor and has previously shared an amazing video she made in Komodo while freediving – no scuba required. The video above she made while on scuba – some sites in Komodo just have too much current to freedive safely – and of course, the current brings in the big things… I think only the first couple of minutes is at Castle Rock and then the rest is from other locations.

You see a video I shot of Ai freediving here.

I had two of the best dives of my life at Castle Rock on successive days – the sheer profusion of fish life there was stunning. I can’t wait to go back!

Make Sure You Have Diving And Travel Insurance

World Nomads is one of the leading travel insurance providers and their coverage also includes scuba diving to 40 metres too if you select the relevant options. Make sure you're covered insurance-wise both above and below water.


  1. great video, frantic fish life there at Castle Rock. And the GT looks massive! Komodo still tops my list of must dive locations in Indonesia

  2. Sweet! Bring back my wonderful memory of Komodo. Castle\nRock is my fav dive site. Should we dive back to Komodo this year?\n:-)
