    Boo Windows dive site

    Boo Windows is the most famous dive site in this area, located off the tiny island of Boo, southeast of Misool Island. This site has provided many of the iconic images of Raja Ampat, with its interesting underwater topography. From the surface of Boo Windows there are 2 rocks that seem to be separated, however, they are actually connected underwater by a magnificent reef adorned in soft corals and brimming with fish. The site is best known for the “windows” or rounded openings on the end of the largest rock that completely pierce the reef from the surface down to about five meters. These large underwater windows or swim-throughs, can be penetrated by several divers at the same time. Although there is a fair amount of macro on the site, Boo Windows is a paradise for wide angle coral photographers, given the windows themselves offer endless angles and a wide variety of foreground. The reef around the islet goes down to around 5 to 10 meters, before turning to a steep wall that drops off to the sandy bottom at around 35 meters. On the southern side of the reef rests a plateau with rock formations covered in a variety of soft corals.

    Other dive site opportunities

    There are other beautiful sites in this cluster of islands, you will find a submerged seamount and a beautiful ridge for instance. The fish life in the area seems never ending, and is full with napoleon wrasses of all sizes, schools of barracuda and batfish, baby white tip reef sharks sleeping under the table corals, and on some occasions maybe a manta ray can be seen around the cleaning stations. You will also see green turtles, wobbegong sharks, reef sharks, snappers, unicorn, surgeonfish, sweetlips, groupers, angel, trigger, damselfish, blue dash fusiliers swarming around you in large numbers, and so many more species.

    In deeper sections look for the huge variety of colored nudibranchs, sea slugs, pygmy seahorses, flatworms and pipefish, mantis shrimp. And pay attention to the less common reef inhabitants such as lobsters, other crustaceans and octopus lurking in many of the fissures of the reef.

    Topography & Walking Shark

    The topography found at this diving area is quite similar, including undercut islets with slopes of sea fans, gorgonians, barrel sponges and pristine shallow hard and soft coral gardens, displaying a colorful seascape. Don’t forget to inspect the sea whips, as you may be able to spot small commensal shrimps camouflaged and attached to them.

    In the beautiful soft corals in the shallows, you may even have seen the famous “walking shark” – epaulette shark.  The marine diversity seems to be continually increasing around Boo islands, so be sure not to leave Raja Ampat, without having experienced these islands.
