Marco’s Reef, Mara’s garden, Lobster Wall, Jeffry reef and others. In all these sites you can find gray sharks, white tip sharks, black tip sharks, manta rays, lobsters, schools of fusiliers composed of thousands of fish, turtles, all coral reef fish, shoals of bumphead parrot fish, jackfish and barracudas. In addition, all the small critters with nudibranchs, seahorses and ghost pipe-fish. Of special addition to the wobbegong shark (carpet shark) is the walking shark (the shark that walks, very rare but possible to sight especially at night), a shark only recently discovered.
Nelayang South and North. This small island with incredibly transparent waters and intense current has two dives quite similar where you can observe big gray sharks that come close to the divers curious about their presence. Possible encounters with schools of fish including barracuda, platax, sweet lips. Also easy to observe spanish mackerel (they can reach two meters in length) and other sharks: white fin, black fin and wobbegong.
Sauwandarek. Just 15 minutes by boat, one of Raja Ampat’s most characteristic and easy dives. A large lettuce coral is home to snappers and sweet lips, leaf fish gently sway on madrepores, while pygmy seahorses are camouflaged among the gorgonian branches. Platax and barracuda can be approached without fear, as are turtles. The marine life under the jetty of the village is amazing, a real paradise for photographers and snorkelers.
West Mansuar. The western cape of the great island north of Agusta never disappoints. Large napoleons, black tip and white tip sharks, tuna, jackfish and barracudas alternate in carousels that disorient divers and snorkelers. During the mantas season these gentle giants pass into the blue, grazing the gently sloping wall.
Agusta housereef. It is the perfect setting for a check dive, full of coral but also the sandy stretches where whizzing blacktip reef sharks and lounging Wobbegong. Snorkelers can swim in search of clownfish and blue spotted rays, surrounded by hundreds of species of reef fish.
