Heading east from the Gili Islands in Lombok, Blue Marlin Dive has established an outlet in Labuan Bajo, on the island of Flores, a step away from the world renowned Komodo National Park, UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Man and Biosphere Reserve.
Only a short flight from Bali, pulau Komodo is the sanctuary of the famous Komodo Dragons (Varanus komodoensi) but the National Park hides a lot more treasures once you put your face in the water…
Swift currents attract an abundance of Manta rays, Giant trevallies, sharks, turtles, sea snakes, colourful nudibranchs, more than 1,000 species of fish, and at least 14 species of whales and dolphins that make Komodo National Park their home.
With some 260 species of reef-building coral and 70 species of sponges, the 1204 km2 of protected marine reserve will satisfy the multitude of cravings of all levels of scuba divers.
The new dive resort, ideally located on the main street of Labuan Bajo, features an inviting restaurant/bar with extensive terrace, opening out onto Labuan Bajo’s quiet harbour where you can end a day of exhilarating underwater action, watching the sun slowly set behind the many uninhabited islands of the National Park.

Blue Marlin Restaurant
Blue marlin restaurant is designed to be your “hub” in Labuan Bajo, Flores. Here you can scope the net, check the panoramic sunset, recharge after a dive trip and mix good times with good people.
An extensive range of tapas-like platters and main courses will ensure all appetites and tastes are catered too. Our food philosophy is Pan-Asian with a Western twist, using fresh local ingredients with the help of the local guys. Did someone mention vegetarian? Our new menu is vegetarian friendly, no worries. For those of you with a thirst to quench can check out our weekly cocktail special or the drink menu.
Recently, we worked on a new menu. A new dish we added is the renown old favourite Fish and Chips, definitely a must try. We are sourcing the fish from a sustainable fish aqua culture in Labuan Bajo. Blue Marlin Restaurant is proud to be the first restaurant to take this initiative, supporting our local community and marine life protection.
Blue Marlin Dive Komodo, a Project AWARE partner, maintains high safety standards and promotes responsible conservation of the undersea. As a scuba diver and ambassador of the sea, you should aim to act in accordance with the following simple guidelines:
On the boat
- Never throw anything overboard (plastic, cigarettes butts, even food scraps)
- Refuse plastic plates, cups and cutlery which take many years to break down.
- Take care to attach secondary air sources, instrument consoles and pressure gauges firmly so they do not dangle and damage fixed flora and fauna.
- Do not collect or remove anything from the sea (apart from any rubbish you may find).
- As soon as you enter the water, check your weights and adjust if necessary.
- Always control your buoyancy to avoid unnecessary contact with the seabed.
- Use your fins gently, so as not to collide with fixed marine life.
- Try to avoid any contact with fixed plants and animals; they are extremely fragile and can easily be destroyed by repeated shocks.
- Do not collect or remove anything from the undersea, apart from submerged rubbish.
- Leave nothing but bubbles, take nothing but pictures!
- If you must hold onto something, make sure that it is not coral, but preferably a rocky outcrop/handhold.
- Do not harass marine organisms. If they take refuge in a hiding-place, do not force them out – they are already stressed enough. Wait without moving until they come out again.
- Do not feed the fish. You may change their behaviour and will inevitably imbalance the ecosystem.
- Do not touch any marine organism, even turtles and shells.
