Cenderawasih Bay & Whale Sharks

Get Adobe Flash player

Cenderawasih Bay is located on the north coast of west Papua and is in the main a place where time has stood still due to the small human population in and around the largest national park in Indonesia encompassing 1.5 million hectares of sea.

This dive destination is now becoming increasingly famous as the only place in the world where sightings of whale sharks are virtually guaranteed, due to the self learned behaviour they come shallow to the bagan’s(small fishing boats) to feed on the ikanpuri (bait fish) that is left in nets by the fisherman. The whale sharks can number in between 1 and over 10 in just one dive and usually stay underneath the bagan for the whole day enabling divers to enter as much as you like all day long.

The bay is also dotted by hundreds of small islands and atoll’s that are home to some of the most pristine hard coral garden’s in Indonesia,andhome to a variety of endemic marine life due to the separation of the bay from open seas for thousands of years.

The island of Biak where we embark and disembark also have great dive sites as they were a base for the Japanese navy in the 2nd world war where not only sunken navy cargo ships can be found but plane wrecks too.
