What’s special about Triton Bay?

We can easily compare Triton Bay to Raja Ampat as they are part of the region of Indonesia. You will find similar topography and species as in Raja Ampat archipelago. However, being located much further in the South, Triton Bay enjoys different currents and therefore a slightly different flux of nutrients. This gives to the area an exceptional level of soft coral coverage. Triton Bay is famous for its black coral reefs and forests that spread as far as eyes can see. This remote region is only visited by few liveaboards, and you always get this amazing spirit of being privileged and a pioneer when cruising in the area!

The God of the Sea

Triton Bay is considered by expert divers as the God of the Sea. It is much more diversified than some Raja Ampat areas as we can find some new unique species of gobies, wrasses and corals. Triton Bay and its current make home to a pot of pilot whales and you can even spot some Whale Sharks going back to the surface! Moreover, you will have the chance to find Epaulette sharks, schools of jacks and fusiliers, squadrons of bump head parrotfish and much more…
Among all these majestic pelagic, you will also find interesting critters’ species such as frogfish, ornate ghost pipefish, wonderpus, pygmy seahorses and nudibranchs galore. It also makes the area the perfect spot for Macro lovers.

The on-land treasures

Triton Bay is also full of surprises on land. The vegetation is very wild given that the human impact is minimize, you can expect green landscapes and distant villages where people live on their own miles away from modern civilization. Even more impressive: some prehistoric paintings have been found on the cliff of Triton Bay and in caves of the surroundings. The paintings represent some fishes, turtles, lizards, crocodiles, sea horses, snakes, and birds among other symbols. This could be expressed by ancestors as a way to pass on other generations about their lifestyle and perception of their home. These ancient drawings are threatened by water damage, erosion, graffiti and risk of cliff collapse but they are protected as part of the local heritage of Namatota Island.
