Departing from Sorong, Papua, the Damai II liveaboard will make the first stop at the eastern end of the Dampier Straits for a check-out dive. We will spend the following day here diving iconic sites like Cape Kri, Blue Magic and Mioskon enjoying the schooling fish, cruising sharks and maybe rays and pygmy seahorses. We will head west to Gam where there are beautiful orange softcorals at Citrus Ridge and fish action at Mayhem before exploring the wonders found under Arborek Jetty. We will head west to Penemu for some world class coral reefs and the photo opportunity of the lagoon from the top of the viewpoint. Moving south to the colourful softcoral-covered reefs around the island of Misool, we can enjoy the pinnacles at Wayilbatan and Fiabacet or a nice drift along the channel at Neptune Fan Sea. We leave the wonders of Raja Ampat and head south along the coast of Papua to Pulau Pisang for a day of diving including a seamount and a great macro dive amongst boulders. Our next stop south is Momon where we will dive a seamount before taking a dip in a fresh water waterfall that runs right into the sea! There will be a channel dive followed by a macro dive at the beautiful bay of Tanjung Wap. From here we head into Triton Bay stopping at the fishing bagans in the hope of seeing some whalesharks. The diving in the current rich Triton Bay is breathtaking with a kaleidascope of softcorals and reef fish and some excellent macro subjects including ghost pipe fish and pygmy seahorses. Our liveaboard cruise ends in Kaimana, where guests can enjoy our complimentary airport transfer.
