Last Raja Ampat liveaboard dive trip of the season!
For the last Raja Ampat liveaboard diving trip, the Indo Siren welcomed on board a group of 16 repeat guests from Taiwan all ready for their liveaboard diving holidays. After a quick orientation, set up equipment ,we already moved to central of Raja Ampat were we spent our first night.
We started the scuba diving cruise with a fantastic day with many wobbegong sharks, white and black tip sharks, many fish, a great visibility and a moderate current. As well as pygmy seahorses, nudibranch and frog fish!
Next on our itinerary was Penemu where we dived Melissa’s Garden, Rainbow Wall and Ruva’s Island. Wobbegong sharks, black tip sharks, ribbon eel and many fish were just a sample of what we saw! Of course, all this surrounded by a stunning reef top with staghorn corals, soft coral sand big table corals. Instead of a night dive, we decided to go for the hilltop in combination with a superb lagoon tour and sunset on the beach.
At Yangeffo, in all 3 day dives, we saw amazing soft coral, wobbegong sharks, black tip and white tip sharks, a school of 1000 sardines and many, many fish like fusiliers and trevallies. For the night dive, we chose Mangrove Ridge where we found cuttle fish, signal goby, wobbegong shark, just to mention a few!
Arborek showed us bumphead parrot fish, black tip shark, reef octopus and lots of nudibranchs!
Next day, we moved the Indo Siren to east of Dampier Strait and started with Blue Magic. Wobbegong shark, schooling jacks, big wahoo and dogtooth tuna created a real fish soup. We then went to Kabui Passage and snorkeled with loads of sharks! At Batu Lima, we had an incredible dive with a pinnacle full of glassfish and hidden wobbegong sharks. For the night dive, Yenbesir Jetty offered plenty of night creatures!
Already our last day of diving in Raja Ampat and we did a happy ending on Cape Kri and Yenbuba. Both dives offered an outstanding diving experience with schooling jacks, sharks and bat fish. In the afternoon the captain crossed back to Sorong were we had a great farewell party.
