Waigeo is the largest of Raja Ampat’s main islands. The surrounding waters of Waigeo offer a variety of marine habitats teeming with all sorts of underwater life. In the passage between Gam and Waige (now one of the area’s most popular dive sites), mangrove wetlands and the tropical forest vegetation above cast a surreal emerald green hue on the corals flourishing within the narrow waterway, creating a stunning underwater photo subject rarely found elsewhere.

West Waigeo has more than 15 interesting dive sites. The region has a stunning marine diversity: the kaleidoscopic color transformations of displaying male Flasher Wrasse, a school of venomous catfish rolling over the substrate while foraging, or a pair of Mandarinfish engaged in their ritual sunset mating dance.

The Passage: the narrow canyon between Gam and Waigeo can be described as a river flowing between the two islands, but also as a marine environment, it is a haven of peculiar and unique microhabitats, where rare archer fish can be sighted and overhanging trees meet sea fans. A mystical place, rich in silent grottos, underwater passages, submerged tunnels leading to still underwater pools hidden inside the forest, sun rays slanting down in the green darkness, like light shining through a cathedral’s multicoloured windows. This is a place where experienced divers and photographers enjoy the utterly different experience of diving in this unique location.
