Diving Highlights and Bucket List Dive Sites:

Manta Point – Manta Sandy

If the many reefs are not enough this area also boasts some of the best manta diving in the world! Manta Sandy is a cleaning station visited by reef mantas (Manta alfredi) that are vying for a position above the two rocks where wrasses clean these giants. They also get enormous 4 meter wide black reef mantas, looking like a negative photographic image, their gills are highlighted in white, along with the other more common white-bellied variety.

Hidden Bay

Just 10 minutes away from The Passage lies a mangrove system of clear mirror-still blue water, where soft corals grow on the roots of mangrove trees. Rising above the foliage hornbills and parrots swoop between the trees. Hidden Bay is a complex network of interconnected water channels and lakes. Looking into the water one can spot huge chocolate chip sea stars laying between the seagrass that grow next to corals normally only seen on outer reefs.

The Passage

This utterly unique dive site, located 1 hour away from Kri Island, lies between the island of Gam and Waigeo. It can be described as river flowing between the two islands. The nutrient rich waters that are drawn through by the tides feed a vast wealth of marine biodiversity. Above water the sheer limestone cliffs make this a place excessively beautiful. There really is no other dive site in the world like this.

Fam Island

These islands are the very definition of paradise. White limestone cliffs plunge into the sea. Ultramarine blue lagoons are nestled next to monumental pinnacles and untouched beaches. There are many places that claim to be this beautiful, but this is the genuine article. Located about 1,5h boat ride from Kri Island, Fam Island has some of the most beautiful coral gardens and walls in Raja Ampat, combined with stunning viewpoints on land.

Wai Island

Just a 30 min boat ride from Kri Island, you will get to dive one of the few diveable wrecks in the area. It is a P47D fighter airplane (approx. length 15m) which crashed during World War II in 1944 and until today remains in perfect condition and shows excellent coral growth and marine life. Located on a slope that gently runs from Wai island it extends from 26 – 33 m depth.

Waterfall Batanta

Batanta, the smallest of the “Four King”, is renowned to be the macro diving spot in Raja Ampat. Giving each diver an excellent opportunity for critter hunting. Lots of little freshwater channels carrying nutrients in and out of its bays, blended with a substrate of silt, mud, black sand, and all this mixed with a diversity of soft and hard corals. A perfect hiding place for all kinds of weird creatures. A wonderful waterfall is also waiting for you in the heart of the tropical forest. Many colorful butterflies in different sizes along with the sound of chirping birds are welcoming you during your way up to a 60 meter high and 25 meter wide fresh waterfall where you have the opportunity to have a refreshing swim.
