Liveaboard Cruises in Triton Bay

Dive Tour Options and Travel Information

Click on an image to enlarge

Triton Bay is a region of Indonesian West Papua which lies south-east of Raja Ampat but is becoming known as a liveaboard destination in its own right. While it shares some of Raja Ampat's best features such as exceptional soft coral growth, it also has some unique features, not least the vast forest-like swathes of black coral.

Many new species have been identified in Triton Bay and the diving allows you to satisfy your need for larger creatures, even as large as pilot whales. For macro lovers, there are also plenty of sites where weird and wonderful critters abound.

The Climate, Diving Season and Best Time to Visit

Triton Bay liveaboards schedule their cruises during the regular Raja Ampat diving season, i.e. October to April. Outside that period the rain and winds can adversely affect sea conditions.

West Papua has 2 wet seasons: November/December and July/August. Rain is a common feature in West Papua at any time of the year. Water temperatures usually hover between 27°C (May to October) to 30°C (November to April).

Ports of Departure and How to Get There

Triton Bay liveaboards use the port of Kaimana in the south of West Papua, which you can fly to from Ujung Pandang (via Ambon), or from Sorong. Such cruises will either begin or end in Sorong in West Papua. You can fly to Sorong direct from Bali, Jakarta, or via Ujung Pandang or Manado.

You can view which ports the various boats use on their trips in the 'Departures & Prices' section of each boat's webpage. We will send you full departure details during the booking process. Whichever ports your boat uses, normally the boat operator provides a transfer to the boat from the local airport or hotels (if you overnight beforehand).

We recommend you take out insurance to cover diving and travel activities, including trip cancellation. See our insurance programme for a competitive quotation:
