Wish I could! Still haven't been yet...one of these years I will get there. My friend and a former instructor I used to work with just got back from a Komodo LOB with this operator called Current Junkies and said it was amazing. So good that he back on that same LOB doing another trip right now!

I logged 26dec C the last time I was there for most dives. Seem to recall it was a little colder at Batu Bolong. This was in Feb and a few years ago.
In May the temp was 27deg C so not a whole load of a difference.
I was using a 3 mm which was fine.

From what I've heard, it's around 25-27 C. Which for me means 5mm wetsuit AND hood but I get cold easily!  :tongue:  If you have a 5mm it doesn't hurt to bring it. Especially if you're doing a LOB meaning many dives a day for several days in a row.

Don't worry, the dives are pretty exciting so plenty of blood circulating to keep you warm, (well until hypothermia sets in!).
