Day 2: Dampier Strait - Cape Kri

At the eastern end of the famous Dampier Strait there are many signature dive sites. Cape Kri is a sloping reef on the eastern end on the island of Kri; Blue Magic and Sardine reef are seamounts covered in schooling fish and cruising sharks and rays; Mioskon is a great spot for the endemic Wobbegong shark and Pontohi pygmy seahorses.

Day 3: Manta Sandy - Gam

Manta Sandy is a signature site for experiencing the grace of Reef Mantas. They are frequent visitors to the cleaning stations dotted along this sandy channel. Feel free to explore the sand for small critters while you are waiting for an appearance.

Gam’s Citrus Ridge is a must. An entrance to a channel when current flows and attracts all kind of live. Its orange soft corals give name to this spectacular site.

Day 5: Aljui Bay

Time to focus on macro on Aljui Bay.

Slopes with plenty to look for: fire urchins with shrimps and crabs, nudibranchs. The night dive under the pearl farm pier is one of the best in the area with possibilities to have encounters with the very elusive walking shark.

Day 6: Penemu

The signature sites in Penemu are Barracuda Point; a seamount on the north point; Melissa’s Garden; a beautiful example of a hard coral plateau and Keruo Channel; drift along this colourful slope watching the seascape go by.

The highlight of Penemu is a lagoon tour in the tender boats amongst these turquoise waters and limestone bays. For the energetic there is a short walk to the top of one the hills to be rewarded with an amazing view over the lagoon with Damai moored in the distance. Activities can also include kayaking in the lagoon.

Day 7: Batanta

The last day will be entirely dedicated to “muck diving”. Seahorses, Octopuses, nudibranchs and rhinopias are some of the usual suspects we can find here.

DISCLAIMERS

The trip will be weather dependent and there might be long crossing required throughout. We will, try to adjust the best we can to the conditions and fulfil all itinerary briefed when you’re on the boat.

Due to the need to report to the local village, divers will need to be flexible with the start time of the first dive at some of the dive sites. We will ensure that you’re given timely update on this during the trip, however your understanding on last minute changes would be appreciate. This is because divers are only allowed in the water once permission is granted by the local villages and officers.

Damai are flexible to change itinerary suggested based on customer’s preference in the event that weather and time allow us to do so and if changes is agreeable by all participants on board
