Diving in Cenderawasih Bay National Marine Park allows you to experience one of Indonesia’s newest and most exciting diving destinations and DAMAI is one of the most experienced operators in this area. In fact one of the original survey trips was undertaken from the decks of Damai I and our staff have many months working in this challenging and remote location.
Cenderawasih Bay liveaboard trips offer you the unique opportunity of spending hours diving or snorkelling with multiple Whale Sharks and we regularly see the sub-adults around the local fishing platforms in only a few meters of water. However the area also boasts an incredibly rich history from the many battles between Allied and Japanese forces in the area during WWII and the area is littered with diveable wrecks of aircraft and ships. Finally there are the unique biological aspects of the bay. Geologically the area has been isolated for many millions of years and as a result many unique and endemic species have developed. Fish and creature watchers will be delighted by many species that they will have never seen before.
Damai I liveaboard offers a short season of trips out of Biak which concentrate in the inner and outer bay or combine dives in Cenderawasih with Raja Ampat itineraries.
If you would like to fly into Biak via the Papuan capital of Jayapura then you will have the opportunity to trek in the Baliem Valley with the local highland tribes and nature. Alternatively a quick stop in the city of Jayapura offers you education at the tribal museum and a tour of the beautiful lake Sentani. Contact our reservations team to organise your bespoke land tour.
