When to go

The sharks can be seen on a daily ba­sis, all year round.

How to get there

Cen­der­awasih Bay is in the In­done­sian prov­ince of West Pa­pua, the west­ern­most por­tion of New Guinea. Most vis­i­tors ac­cess this area by live­aboard. Al­ter­na­tively, you can try Tri­ton Bay Dive Re­sort in Kaimana on the south­ern coast of West Pa­pua where the sharks also con­gre­gate around bagans, though not as con­sis­tently as in the north. To reach Tri­ton Bay, you have to fly via Am­bon or Sorong.
