When to go diving
Dive site in Indonesia
The Yellow Wall of Texas is located on the east coast of Nusa Kode, east of Komodo. The beautiful wall starts at 5m / 16ft deep and goes down to a depth of 40m / 131ft, but various things are not as deep as they are, because the most interesting marine life lies at shallower depths . The yellow color of the wall provides more natural lighting. Then, the yellow dominance is caused by an abundance of yellow sea cucumbers, which almost completely cover this beautiful wall, with soft yellow and orange corals.
When should we go
The annual water temperature of 25-28C / 77-82F allows this dive all year on this site. However, the peak season lasts from November to March. Visibility is lower in July and August, when the water temperature is cooler and the sea is richer in nutrients.
What to see
The main attraction of this site is the proliferation of yellow sea cucumbers. Divers will also see an interesting variety of colorful nudibranchs, beautiful soft corals, and abundant shoals of small reef fish. At the deep end of the wall are various snappers, green turtles and some white-sided sharks.
