The crossroads of different currents, that navigate through the channel between this island and the small island of Koh, has created an incredible variety of fauna and flora, everything is there, therefore Cape Kri being considered the site in Raja Ampat with the widest range of marine life, is not an exaggeration. Many different varieties of small and big reef fish, schools of jacks, batfish, large schools of snappers, cardinal, fusilier, sweetlips, butterflyfish and angelfish are just a sample of the fish you’ll see swimming in the currents. You can also expect encountering all kind of sharks, hawksbill turtles, and huge Queensland groupers that come to feed on the smaller fish and nutrient rich plant life. Divers will spot large schools of giant trevally and dogtooth tuna on most dives, but the encounters that get divers more excited are the big schools of chevron barracuda, that are seen in tornados here and the sight of the huge Napoleon wrasse as well. Macro divers will be pleased too, as the macro life here is equally diverse, with multitudes of nudibranchs and shrimps, as well as pygmy seahorses, various kinds of scorpion fish, flatworms, octopus, and other small creatures.
Coral growth is also quite impressive in Cape Kri, it is very abundant, healthy and colorful, with different kinds of hard and soft coral, sponges and sea fans.
