    Topography & Features

    Cape Kri features a reef with a sloping wall down to around 40 meters. In the top of the reef, you will find many hard corals surrounded by black tip reef sharks and at the bottom of the reef, there is an ancient snagged anchor that has become home to a large group of sweetlips.

    Fauna & Flora

    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.

    Kinds of dives & Conditions

    Visiting the site at dawn and at dusk, when it is feeding time, is normally when there is the largest number of fish, so divers can experience this site at its awe-inspiring best. As you will experience in only one dive, being surrounded by large schools of fish as you dive over the reef, with a variety of them that is hard to describe, you will never ever return disappointed from a dive at Cape Kri. Sometimes, it’s enough to just dive down, cling to a rock, and enjoy the show. This is a dive site that you’ll definitely want to return to. 

    Given that currents can be strong at times; it is recommended to stay deep while diving this site, to avoid strong surface currents. Visibility is excellent and diving this site is possible all year long.

    The average water temperature ranges from 27 to 30 Celsius degrees throughout the year.
