Named by some as, ‘the next frontier of diving’. Leaving the small port of Kaimana there is nothing but thick rainforest, gorgeous inlets and uninhabited beaches, undisturbed my human activity. If you are really looking for an adventure and want to explore some of the most remote and unknown area, this is the place to go. 

Triton bay was only surveyed by Conservation International in 2006 and there is only one small resort. Very few Liveaboards only just start to uncover the top of what is believed one of the most diverse and pristine area in Indonesia. There are sandy bottoms with huge boulders, covered in the most colorful soft corals and is considered to be even better than Raja Ampat.The visibility can vary as the sites are between the islands bringing nutritious currents feeding these untouched corals. Whalesharks visit the area all year round following the big shoals of anchovies

Fishermen that are catching the anchovies stay on these floating fishing platforms ‘bagans’ Hence the whalesharks like to hang around here. There is no guarantee you get to see them though, as the bagans are not always operative and not every bagan attracts whalesharks

They operate at night with big lights, attracting the fish. Early morning, they will pull up their nets. This is when we want to be around as the whalesharks will eat the escapees.If they are around you can see them snorkeling as well as diving . 

On the way to Koon Island we could visit a waterfall that empties right in the ocean and dive a very unexplored underwater sea mounts covered in life. 

Koon Island, again a very remote location that it lays between the Ceram, Arafula Sea the Banda Sea, feeding of very nutritious currents fish and corals thrive here. 


Destination FAQ

Triton Bay is very remote, located in the southwestern corner of Papua. However, this remoteness rewards scuba divers and snorkelers with an incredible underwater paradise, unique to the area. From magnificent coral reefs and an abundance of fish, to Wobegon Shark and whale sharks, these are just some of the amazing experiences awaiting you in Triton Bay.

We have over 30 dive sites already identified here and many more yet to explore. Dive sites range from pinnacles to shallow soft coral gardens, huge boulders draped in colorful 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 and we have had guests suggest that this should be called the “soft coral capital of the world” with all due respect to Fiji.

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 and continues to surprise us with new finds every time we go diving. Dubbed by some as “the next frontier of Indonesian diving” and the “last best place”, Triton Bay offers something for everyone both above and below the waves. And best of all you will be one of only a few divers enjoying the waters in this very remote area.

Strong currents move abundant phytoplankton and zooplankton up and down through the strait, fueling the food chain for all the reef residents. Shallow coral gardens and slopes strewn with boulders are among the fishiest I have ever explored in Indonesia, the entire Coral Triangle, and, for that matter, anywhere in the world. No wonder the nascent dive tourism industry there proclaims the Kaimana Regency as the “Kingdom of the Fishes.”

The Iliké

The ILIKE was built on Sulawesi in Bira in 2010. It is the area where the local tribe is famous for building the strong and reliable phinisi boats, the traditional ships specifically designed and built for travelling the Indonesian archipelago.

Ilike hosts a total of 16 guests in 8 cabins that are fully air-conditioned with ensuite bathroom with hot water shower, toilet and sink. Indonesian and International meals will be served in the spacious saloon with open kitchen, or in the outdoor sitting area at the stern of the boat, well protected from wind while sailing. The comfortable dive deck in front of the boat is one of the most spacious on Indonesian liveaboards. As a diver you can choose to dive on Air or Nitrox from our membrane Nitrox compressor. Between dives you are invited to catch some sun on our sun deck, where you will also enjoy spectacular sunsets, sipping a cool drink!

The yacht is powered by 2 x 320HP marine engines, allowing us to cruise at an average speed of 9-10 knots across Indonesia. We schedule top diving destinations like Komodo, Alor, Maluku, Banda Sea, Triton Bay, Raja Ampat and Kalimantan. Rich marine life, healthy corals and stunning landscapes may soon become your memories after a stay on board of Ilike. We look forward to welcome you on board!
