The Indo Siren liveaboard dive trip in Raja Ampat started in the Dampier Strait. Around the island of Mioscon and at Blue Magic, we found loads of hunting fish like wahoo, giant trevally and dog tooth tuna attacking schools of yellow snapper and neon fusiliers as well as wobbegong shark and oceanic manta on our very first day! At Sardine Reef and Cape Kri, we had schools of great barracuda, blue fin trevally, giant trevally and red tooth triggerfish.

After steaming all night over calm seas, the Indo Siren arrived at the far South East of Raja Ampat. The area of Daram is noted for brilliant soft coral life and gentle sloping ridges that give way to steep drop-offs into the blue. Walls of fish surround stunning coral atolls where drivers gently drift in the sunlight. Some of our guests were even treated to an amazingly beautiful six meter wide Oceanic Manta on only the second dive! “I think it’s going to be a good trip!”
The Indo Siren welcomed on board a group of 16 guests of mixed nationalities for their next liveaboard diving cruise in Raja Ampat! After a quick orientation, the captain moved north to Dampier Strait.
First day of diving we started in Mioskon with crystal clear water and literally a fish soup of, fusiliers, yellow snappers, wobbegong sharks, pigmy seahorses in great visibilities and outstanding coral reefs.
The Indo Siren crew was ready to start another great liveaboard dive trip in Raja Ampat! The diving cruise started in the Sagof area of Raja Ampat to the East of Misool. After a smooth night sailing we arrived at Two Tree Rock rested and ready for our first day of diving. About halfway through our first dive, we started to hear telltale clicks and clacks that experienced divers know can mean only one thing: Dolphins. All eyes turn to look out to the blue as we are treated to an amazingly rare site! Three playful adult dolphins came swooping in chasing breakfast and our photographers were lucky to fire off a few quick shots! This was a good sign for the trip!
