PUTRI PAPUA PRINCES
RAJA AMPAT in West Papua
This is the final frontier, at the eastern end
of Indonesia. Raja Ampat offers amazing diving
and the most stunning topside scenery of any
dive destination on Earth. This is where Dr.
Gerald Allen counted 273 fish species on a
single dive. If you’re looking for unusual sea
life like the elusive wobbegong shark, or
looking for Birds of Paradise, then a Dive
Paradise Indonesia liveaboard cruise here is for
you. Water temperature: 24 – 29 C. Visibility:
10 – 30 M (seasonal). Year-round diving.
MISOOL in West Papua
Untouched environments, completely in their natural states. Fish
populations and coral are healthy, with an enormous variety of
species. Many rare and exotic critters.
TRITON BAY in West Papua
Triton Bay is still pretty much in the middle of nowhere, far away
from the crowd. There are innumerable small islands in the bay.
Spectacular scenery over the mainland features rock art cliffs. This
area enjoys an unexcelled fish Biomass. Soft coral gardens cover the
ridges. Hard coral growth also shows excellent health. This area has
both pelagics and critters, with the diving ranging from very good
a tiny island right on the equator, between West Papua and Palau.
Come here for nudibranchs galore beneath huge schools of fish.
You’ll see snappers, trevally, big groupers, barracudas, gray
sharks, pink leaf scorpion fish, rainbow runners, jacks, tunas, huge
Napoleon wrasses, and even huger bumphead parrotfish by the
hundreds. Dive sites include Bumphead City, Schooling Point, Mapia
Boulevard, and Bumphead City—and they came by their names for good
MANOKWARI in West Papua.
Come to Makowari for amazing WWII wreck diving, including P-40 (a
Curtiss Tomahawk fighter), Cross Wreck, and the Japanese freighter
Shinwa Maru, plus the usual amazing wildlife, including healthy and
profuse hard and soft corals. Dive profiles extend down to the 30
BANDA in the Banda sea
Knowledgeable divers seek out this remote location due to a
confluence of currents and nutrients there, producing an unusually
diverse and brilliant growth of marine life—even for Indonesia.
Fishes large and small can be found on any of the dive sites. The
diving ranges from the shallow lagoon between Banda Neira and Gunung
Api to the vertical walls of Hatta Island.
HALMAHERA in North Maluku
These were the original Spice Islands. Until the Dutch planted
cloves on Ambon Island, every clove in the world came from the
Halmahera islands Ternate and Tidore. This region features unique
reef formations, with visibility 20 – 30 m, and water temperature of
27 – 28 C. Plenty of macro and micro subjects for UW photographers.
