Some of our Favorite Raja Ampat Dive Sites

 

MISOOL – WAYIL


The Wayil area is filled with original dive sites such as Neptune Seafans, Wedding Cake and Four Kings. The current brings a lot of nutrients to those dive sites. Mantas can be seen in a few dive sites in this area, schools of fusilliers, trevallies and also different types of pygmy seahorses.


 

MISOOL – FIABACET


Nudi Rock, Tank Rock, Whale Rock—this area is covered in limestone formations with great diving around it. Turtles, mantas, reef sharks, schools of barracudas, and a plethora of critters and macro biodiversity inhabit these reefs. This is a must-dive in Misool!


 

MISOOL – WARAKARAKET


Claudine’s favorite dive site, Magic Mountain, can never get boring. Sightings of oceanic mantas, sharks, groupers, napoleons, and travellies combined with a magnificent coral garden on a sea mount.


 

MISOOL – BOO


The prestigious landmark of Misool can be observed underwater at high tide or above water at low tide because of the one round-shaped windows (unfortunately the middle wall collapsed a few years back, as before 2020 we could observed 2 windows). The reef surrounding this little islet has a great variety of soft and hard coral and is also home to some schools of batfish. We can see cruising turtles, mantas and reef sharks as well. Close by there is also a perfect night dive spot where ghost pipefish, candy crabs and blue-ringed octopuses can be seen.


 

MISOOL – DARAM


One of our favorite dive sites in Daram region is named Andiamo. It is memorable in terms of topography with its three pinnacles close to each other. Although the surge can be impressive, the underwater scenery can be majestic. Plenty of santa claus pygmy seahorses. Another famous dive site in the area is Candy Store …. and as it’s name claims it, it is a real colorful candy store down there with all its colorful soft coral.


 

BATANTA – SOUTHWEST


Diving in the southwest of Batanta offers dive sites such as Happy Ending and Reflexions. With little coral patches and a lot of black-sand slopes, we can observe nudibranchs, cowries, frogfish, cuttlefish, octopus, shrimp and crabs of all sorts. With luck, we can see a flamboyant cuttlefish from time to time. Let’s not forget the woebegone sharks that find shelter in the area.


 

PENEMU


This is a site well known for its viewpoint. Penemu is also worth diving because it offers sites such as My Reef and Melissa’s Garden to name only the most famous ones. A great drift dive is offered as well in Keruo Channel, and we have encountered a few reefs sharks and sailfish in Tanjung Burung. Penemu is definitely a highlight of our liveaboard trip in Raja Ampat.


 

AERBOREK


Symbolic island of Raja Ampat, Aerborek Beach is home to giant clams and a well-colonized wooden jetty. Mantas, schools of yellowstripe scad, juvenile batfish, walking sharks and more call it home.


 

GAM/YANGEFFO


A little channel between the two islands gives us the opportunity to not only do some peaceful kayaking but also either diving or snorkelling in the mangroves. The roots of the mangroves are filled with soft coral and also a funny-looking fish, the banded archer fish. Sunset is a good time to get in the water to watch some mandarin fish sexy action.


 

DAMPIER STRAIT


Cape Kri is a legendary dive site in this region, boasting the world record for the highest number of fish species recorded in a single dive. Positioned at the northeast tip of Kri Island, its strong currents between Kri and Koh Islands attract an array of marine life, from barracudas to Spanish mackerel. With additional sites like Blue Magic, Mike’s Point, Mioskon, and Yenbuba Jetty in Mansuar, the excitement never ceases.
