Welcome to Triton Bay
The wealth of marine life here is extraordinary. Of the many highlights are pygmy seahorses, Nursalim flasher wrasse, Triton Bay walking sharks, big pods of dolphins, marlin, groupers, sweetlips, large schools of fusiliers and surgeonfish and arguably the most spectacular soft corals in the world. And if all that weren’t enough, there’s also the big daddy of them all, whale sharks, which are attracted to the fishing bagang (platform).
So far there are around 30 identified dive sites ranging from pinnacles to shallow soft-coral gardens and drift and wall dives. The one downside is that average visibility ranges from 10m to 15m, though it can be up to 25m or as little as 5m.
Currently very few people have dived here and only a few liveaboard dive boats come through, but with the 2015 opening of the Triton Bay Divers, the first dive resort in the area, the reefs around here are about to become easier to access. The resort is set on Aiduma Island and has just four elegant, luxurious wooden cottages on a beautiful white-sand beach.
