Truly dive sites like Cape Kri, of Dr. Allen’s 30-year lifetime record fish count. Cape Kri has probably the largest concentration of big fish of any sites in northern Raja Ampat. Mioskon, Cape Kri and Mike’s point are among the sites for day two.
  • Day Three : Wayag

  • Sel Pele is a very large bay located on the western side of Waigeo Island, and is renowned as the best 
  • place in Raja Ampat for critter hunting. The bay has a large mouth with a small island in the center. Sometimes between our dives, we make tour and visit the pearl farms. Dinding Selatan; Kebung Kerang; and Pearl farm Pier (The Jetty) are among our selection for day and night dives in the area.

Manta is usually seen. Sheer numbers of fish here. Of course, there are great schools of trevallies and tuna in numbers that practically block out the light. But you can also be enthralled by vast numbers of bumpheaded parrotfish as they charge around and devour the coral.

This is where you shall see whale sharks (Rhincodon typus), normally they are seen on their own when they are feeding and when they are not feeding they live in more than 1,200 meters below the surface of the water. But here we see them together (adults and juveniles) below the bagans (fishing platforms). Originally when the locals brought up their nets in the early morning catching millions ikan puri (small bait fish) the whale sharks followed the nets and were seen sucking on the nets. This is strange behavior for the world’s largest fish which normally only eats plankton is 
  • truly unique to Kwatisore, it is believed that they get nutrients and oils from the bait fish. So now liveaboards buy the bait fish from the bagan fishermen and then we ask them to slowly throw them back in (on top of the whale sharks), then the whale sharks swim around taking the bait fish in their mouths but the bait fish come back out again via their gills. The whale sharks stay within 10m of the surface so it is really easy to snorkel with them.
