Besides the Raja Ampat islands, you can also dive in the Cenderawasih Bay. This bay in Papua is the largest protected marine area of Indonesia. Apart from dolphins, sea cows and sharks there are four species of sea turtles, more than 1,000 fish species and 500 coral species. Seeing whale sharks is included on the bucket list of every diver. Diving in the Cenderawasih Bay in Papua is a must, because there is a great chance that you will see a whale shark there.
