Manta Point – Manta Sandy (Dive or Snorkeling)

If the many reefs are not enough this area also boasts with some of the best manta diving in the world! Manta Sandy is a cleaning station visited by reef mantas (Manta alfredi) that are vying for a position above the two rocks where wrasses clean these giants. We also get enormous 4 meter wide black reef mantas, looking like a negative photographic image, their gills are highlighted in white, along with the other more common white-bellied variety.

Hidden Bay (Tour & Snorkeling)

Just 10 minutes away from The Passage lies a mangrove system of clear mirror-still blue water, where soft corals grow on the roots of mangrove trees. Rising above the foliage hornbills and parrots swoop between the trees. Hidden Bay is a complex network of interconnected water channels and lakes. Looking into the water one can spot huge chocolate chip sea stars laying between the seagrass that grows next to corals normally only seen on outer reefs.

The Passage (Dive or Snorkeling)

This utterly unique dive site, located 1 hour away from Kri Island, lies between the island of Gam and Waigeo. It can be described as river flowing between the two islands. The nutrient rich waters that are drawn through by the tides feed a vast wealth of marine biodiversity. Above water the sheer limestone cliffs make this a place excessively beautiful. There really is no other dive site in the world like this.

This is a place where experienced divers and photographers enjoy the superbly different experience of diving in this truly one-of-a-kind location.

About us

Company details

1 island, 2 resorts
Max Ammer, the founder of Papua Diving, first came to the region over 21 year ago following his passion to search for submerged World War II aircraft. After spending so much time in Raja Ampat Max fell in love with the Papuan people and started a number of initiatives to support the local Papuan communities. Papua Diving was one of the projects. It’s mission: to bring much needed money to the local people by enabling divers who had never heard of the region to be amazed by the wonders of the unspoiled aquatic world here.
