Triton Bay is one of three regions that comprise the Bird’s Head Seascape (the other two being Raja Ampat and Cenderawasih Bay), which is now considered by marine biologists to be the epicenter of the Coral Triangle and which contains more fish and coral species than anywhere else on the planet.

Diving Triton Bay

In 2008 Kaimana Regency declared a 6000 sq km Marine Protected Area around the waters of Kaimana and Triton Bay. The marine biodiversity here is second to none.

Dive sites range from pinnacles to shallow soft coral gardens, huge boulders draped in colourful corals, massive black coral bushes, drift and wall dives, as well as the opportunity for critter hunting. Triton Bay is becoming best known for its beautiful soft coral gardens.  The area offers everything from the tiniest pygmy seahorses to large and graceful whale sharks visiting the traditional fishing bagans.  You might also see pods of dolphins and marlin around these platforms. 

 

In addition, the region boasts a number of species found nowhere else, such as the elusive Triton Bay walking shark (Hemiscyllium henryi), and the beautiful P. Nursalim flasher wrasse, which outside of Triton Bay can only be found in Misool, south Raja Ampat.
