Raja Ampat & Triton Bay

This is the perfect cruises to fully enjoy East Indonesia’s finest marine biodiversity. In this program we take you not only to dive the world famous Raja Ampat, but also to explore West Papua further south in Triton Bay in Kaimana district.

The beauty of its amazing soft corals that stick out to the surface is definitely one of the major marine attractions in Triton Bay. There are over 959 different kinds of coral fish and 471 known types of coral in this area. The other highlights include black coral forests, overflowing schools of sweetlips, vibrant macro lives, and a good chance to encounter whale sharks on “bagans”—the fishing platforms where these giants come to visit from time to time.

 The other part of the cruise will allow you to discover or rediscover Misool with its magnificent reefs that are certainly among the most beautiful reefs in the world.
