Best in the world - so far - I have dived many places in the world but none has come up to the quality and excitement of diving Raja Ampat, including Cape Kri. The reefs are in pretty good condition with some bomb damage but in the brisk currents the clouds of fish are spectacular. Where else can one hang out with 40 or 50 great barracuda or hundreds of jacks, all within a few feet of you? some good Manta dives as well!

KRI Island - This site is where a world record fish count was made on the house reef.
284 species recorded on a single tank dive of 60 minutes, by Ausralian ichthyologist Dr Gerry Allen. There are
numerous reefs here where not just the diversity is evident, but also the
quantities are suprising. Sharks are seen on most dives, a rarity in Indonesia. Kri island in Raja Ampat is where the fishes are to be found.
