Where To Dive



Holding the world record with 374 fish species seen on single dive by Dr. Gerry Allen, Cape Kri should be on every diver's bucket list.


Myriad soft corals and swathes of staghorn coral make for one of the most colourful dives in Raja Ampat.

Manta Ridge


As the name suggests, it is a reef that is truly magic in the blue. Home to a diverse range of schooling fish species, it is also a location where Wobbegong sharks are commonly found. And if all of that was not enticing enough, Blue Magic is also a cleaning station for the Oceanic (Giant) Manta Rays.

Coral Reefs in Raja Ampat


A reef so full with fish life that it leaves you in awe. From hunting reef sharks and pelagics all looking to capatilize on the sheer amount of fish found on this reef, it is no wonder Sardines is guest favorite and requested time and time again. Besides the Pelagics, there is also a good amount of macro life such a pygmy seahorses.

To see manta rays from the top or the bottom, that is the question! Snorkelers and divers can watch as manta rays swoop around this site, stopping off at bommies where small fish offer a cleaning service.

Diver's Paradise

"One of my favorite places to dive in Raja Ampat is Cape Kri. Over a decade ago, years before Raja became the place to dive in the world, I counted 327 fish species on a single dive there. I went back about two years ago and couldn’t believe the positive changes on the site. Most impressionable to me was the fact that the fish had become accustomed to divers. I didn’t even have to look for fish. They found me!


The survey was the highest species count I’ve ever tallied on one dive, 374 distinct species in 90 minutes!"


— Dr. Gerry Allen
