Liveaboard Adventures cruise will be departing from Sorong, on Damai I with the first days being spent in the north of Raja Ampat around the world-famous Dampier Straits, diving iconic sites like Cape Kri, Blue Magic, and Mioskon enjoying the schooling fish, cruising sharks, and maybe rays and pygmy seahorses. We will head east to Mapia (weather permitting), which sits close to a military base and contains an underwater world that is pristine and untouched, and onwards to Pulau Manim island-hopping the atolls as we go.
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.
