Raja Ampat to E. Forgotten Islands and Triton Bay: Diving and Eco Expedition 2023

Ocean Safari is no stranger to Raja Ampat. Over the years, we’ve had many expeditions to this wondrous underwater world of life and every time has left us in awe of its beauty. This time, we’ll be starting off our journey from Raja Ampat and venture south to the Kai Archipelago on the north eastern edge of the Forgotten Islands. Here, we’ll be among the very first divers to lay their eyes on the islands’ pristine coral reef wonders and amazing deep walls covered with soft corals, sea fans, and sponges. From there, we’ll move on to Triton Bay, also known as the Kingdom of Fishes, where we can observe the intimate relationship that some village fishermen have with the whale sharks in the area, and have the chance to snorkel with these majestic animals. This route through the world-renowned coral triangle is specialized for us to maximize our experiences in one of the most unique and memorable places in the world.
