Triton Bay and Cendrawasih Bay, are two of the best places to have a once in a lifetime encounter with whale sharks. While the majority of whale sharks migrate in search of warm water and food, the whale sharks in these bays prefer to stay in local waters of Raja Ampat all ear round, with the best time to view them between October – March. This period is the dry season, the seas are calm, and the water visibility is excellent.
Whale sharks are the largest fish in the ocean, growing up to an astounding 60ft long. Don’t let their name and size scare you! These gentle giants are often spotted gliding near the surface of the water feeding on plankton, eggs, and other small marine life. Their slow movement makes this an excellent activity for all ages.
Guests do have the option to dive or snorkel alongside the whale sharks. But since they prefer to stay towards the surface of the water, snorkeling with whale shakes tends to be favorite amongst guests. We offer a choice of itineraries and ships sailing through Papua and the islands of Eastern Indonesia. For further information, please contact one of our knowledgable sales consultants to discuss the options.
Amazing trip!! I am very happy to share my feedback about Hello Indo services and recommendations. My boyfriend and I had a very nice experience booking our sailing journey with them. They have selected for us the best liveaboard and experiences aboard for our romantic holidays. The organization of the trip went smoothly and their expert of the area, Charles, was very attentive to our needs and gave us the best advice and offer. (…)
The program was impeccable, the sea life breathtaking and the paradisiac landscapes. The crew was impeccable and very friendly: destinations, activities, meals etc … everything was perfect! I highly recommend the destination and Hello Indo who have put together a dream vacation.
Unforgettable experience, the activities prepared according to our desires: we discovered magnificent places, we had the chance to swim with manta rays, went kayaking in Gili Makassar, small sunset above Padar Island … incredible! A big thank you to the team of Hello Indo for making this stay so unique, we felt really privileged. I recommend a cruise with Hello if you really want to experience something out of the ordinary !!
The scenery and the advice provided by Hello Indo were extraordinary. Swim with manta rays and turtles, snorkel around the best coral sites, observe amazing fish and corals or see foxes flying out of the woods against a magnificent sunset background as you climb mountains fascinating sunrise landscapes(…). Overall a superb experience, couldn’t recommend it more.
