Spectacular trip with the Dewi Nusantara in Cenderawasih Bay

Cenderawasih Bay is difficult to get to, four flights, but totally worth it. The region/bay is so unspoiled and exceeds expectations. The 4 dives with whale sharks were unforgettable. Pro tip, go during New Moon! We had up to 7 whales per dive!!! The coral was beyond spectacular and every dive sight was very fishy. The boat and crew were top notch in every regard, always ready to help. With the Dewi you really do get what you pay for.
