The resort offers a selected and personalized service and is – without any compromise on comfort – nestled in the lush green jungle overlooking a kidney-shaped lagoon, meters away from the world’s most famous dive site ‘Cape Kri’.

Sorido Bay Resort Dive Sites

Here are some of the most popular dive sites in Raja Ampat. Feel free to ask us if you would like to know more about these and other dive sites. 

  • Cape Kri - One of the favorite dives, Cape Kri is Sorido Bay’s house reef and less than 3 minutes by boat from Kri Eco Resort. This is the dive site that put Raja Ampat on the map when Dr. Gerry Allen smashed his record for the total number of fish species on a single tank dive: 374 different species!
  • Sardines - Only 10 mins from Kri Island, this submerged reef with a reef top at 5 meters, contains a very high biomass, one of the highest in Raja Ampat.
  • Blue Magic - Only 15 mins from Kri Island, this small pinnacle has almost everything. From Wobbegong sharks to tiny 2cm Denise Pygmy seahorses. The reef top is covered in 
  • hard coral with some big coral heads and some tabling Acropora corals well over 3 meters across.
  • Manta Sandy - Only 25 mins from Kri Island, this sandy slope is famous for its Manta Rays. It is a cleaning station where they come in to get cleaned.
  • The Passage - As seen in many articles, including recently by David Doubilet in the Sept 2007 National Geographic, the passage is completely unique dive site. The narrow canyon 40 minutes away between Gam and Waigeo can be described as a river flowing between the two Islands, but also a marine environment, a haven of peculiar and unique microhabitats.
