Castle Rock

Castle Rock is an action-packed pinnacle located in the north of Komodo National Park. The pinnacle is positioned in an open body of water and the castle-like peak is submerged a few meters below the water’s surface. You will jump into the blue and quickly descend to get into position within the split.

At Castle Rock you will mostly see white tip, black tip and/or huge grey reef sharks hunting in the current. Also giant & blue fin trevallies hunting massive schools of fusiliers.
