Diving in Kupang
Homepage

You could find healthy growths of hard and soft corals, and some big animals : mantas, sharks, turtles, rays, Napoleon wrasse, large groupers or bumphead parrotfish. The  medium-sized reef fishes were also well-represented here, incuding sweetlips, batfish, anglefish, triggerfish and parrotfish. Butterflyfish and damselfish, bu Indonesian standards, were scarce, as were schooling fish. Invertebrates - particularly nudibranchs, worms, crustaceans and echinoderms - were always plentiful. But visibility never exceeded 12 meters, and averaged 7 - 10 meters. Occasionally, it dropped to just 2 - 3 meters. Diving is good year-round, but visibility reaches its peak from August to September.
