WHY TRITON BAY & RAJA AMPAT?
Raja Ampat, translated directly as "four kings", was named for the 4 main islands in the area - Batanta, Misool, Salawati and Waigeo. We cruise by these 4 main islands, as well as many smaller ones, as we take you to explore dive sites truly fit for a king. In addition to varied corals, critters and pelagics, this destination offers vibrant and colourful underwater scenes plus also majestic landscapes, making it a perfect destination for keen photographers. The only problem with diving here, in Raja Ampat, is that you'll be so spoiled by the near-perfect conditions that you may never want to leave or dive anywhere else again. Spread across 1,500 virtually untouched islands, the waters of the Raja Ampat region are home to the most colourful, pristine and photogenic soft coral reefs, as well as a wide range of creatures from walking sharks to mantas to pygmies. Raja Ampat can boast over 1,300 reef fish (25 endemic species), 13 marine mammals, 5 species of endangered sea turtles, 600 hard corals and 75 % of all known coral species. When you join a cruise featuring Raja Ampat, all the famous dive sites such as Dampier Strait, Manta Sandy, Boo and Misool are on the agenda. Triton Bay offers almost everything a diver could ask for including miniature pygmy seahorses to massive whalesharks, rare walking sharks and beautiful flasher wrasses.
