Experience the thrill of spending quality time in the water with whale sharks. Dive around the bagans (floating fishing platforms) and watch as the normally plankton-eating sharks enjoy their free dinner from the local fisherman.
Cenderawasih Bay liveaboard trips offer you the unique opportunity of spending hours diving or snorkeling with multiple Whale Sharks and Damai regularly sees the sub-adults around the local fishing platforms in only a few meters of water. However, the area also boasts an incredibly rich history from the many battles between Allied and Japanese forces in the area during WWII, and the area is littered with diveable wrecks of aircraft and ships. Finally, there are the unique biological aspects of the bay. Geologically the area has been isolated for many millions of years and as a result, many unique and endemic species have developed. Fish and creature watchers will be delighted by many species that they will have never seen before.
Weather permitting, we will cross to the last atoll in Indonesian waters, which is too remote for fisherman to go and protected by a naval outpost giving superb diving, pristine waters, hard corals, and a tremendous amount of fish. A truly rare opportunity to see reefs in the way they were many years ago, and a delight to all our senses.
