Dive sites in Triton Bay:

Saruenus Island will almost certainly be visited while sailing on your Triton Bay liveaboard. The island offers 4 main dive sites, each with quite different characteristics due to how the current acts upon it. Little Komodo is a very rocky site with boulders that breach the surface. All around the rocky outcrops, you will see shoals of all sorts of fish, including anthias, damsels and fusiliers as well as snappers and sweetlips. The rocks are largely covered by soft corals, and provide many tucked-away corners for macro species to hide, including the very rare pygmy seahorse and many species of nudibranchs and shrimp. Another must-see site on Saruenus Island is Aquarium. This is a drift dive along a wall and is full of soft coral bommies of beautiful oranges and forest greens.

Bo’s Rainbow is an island site that is usually a sheltered site with little to no current. It is a relatively shallow dive site with an average depth of 52 feet (16 m), and when currents are weak, it is sometimes possible to circumnavigate the entire island. This is also a rocky site, encrusted with seemingly endless gardens of soft corals attracting many large schools of fish. Here you will notice that the more common species, such as fusiliers and damsels, will very often be showing off different shades of colours to what one might normally expect.

Another popular site on the liveaboard itinerary is Namatote Wall, located just off the southern tip of Namatote Island. Visibility along this wall dive is sometimes slightly limited due to the current’s shifting nature, but what is lost in visibility is more than made up for by overwhelming numbers of macro species. For those who are not so fond of muck sites, this is an excellent alternative for capturing those sought-after critters, such as nudibranchs, gobies and shrimp.

Day 10

Final day of diving with 1-2 scheduled dives – sailing towards Kaimana harbor.

Day 11

Departure day. After breakfast, we’ll head back to Kaimana. Transfer to hotel or airport.

The last dive will be on the penultimate day of the trip. Divers are recommended to wait for 24hours before flying after the last dive.
