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.
The many liveaboards plying the waters around Papua include:
