Royal Welcome Back to the Four Kings
For our first trip of the season at Raja Ampat, it was a real pleasure and an honour to welcome a team of 16 divers lead by Gerald Nowak, photography contributor to “Tauchen” diving magazine. Leaving the port of Sorong late at night, we arrived at the beautiful island of Batanta for our first 3 dives of this Indo Siren Liveaboard Safari. We had the opportunity to spot different crabs, lobsters, nudis and shrimps but also trevally and moray eels, in this very calm muck diving environment.
Continuing south, to Daram near the island of Misool, our 3 day dives were along walls full of impressive sea fans and beautiful black coral. The attraction of the day was a majestic wobbegong shark resting under a rock. Curious batfish, barramundi, school of fusilliers were also our diving companions; meanwhile 6 dolphins were companions to the snorkelers. It was the wobbegong shark’s day as we found another one during the night dive.
