4 Kings

A wonderful dive site full of suprises

Four Kings Raja Ampat
  • Four underwater pinnacles out of nowhere

    Four Kings is another superb dive site in Raja Ampat, located to the East of the island of Pele in southern Misool. They are four underwater pinnacles in the middle of nowhere, covered in a blanket of soft coral. Here you can easily swim from one rock to the next one and admire the soft corals and marine life.

    The base of these dramatic rock formations is about forty meters deep, and their summits peaks are between thirty and five meters below surface. The site itself has a similar shape to an underwater mountain range, since a long ridge connects the tops of a series of summits below the surface. Every surface is covered with incredible colored soft corals and sea fans, with plenty of fish swimming close to the reef.

    The site can be dived in any direction, but ideally is to start at the shallowest point, which is on the site’s solitary pinnacle. This pinnacle is connected to the other 3 by a narrow gap of 15 meters. In between the last two pinnacles, there is a dramatic deep canyon.

    Meet the current and the curious schools of Barracudas

    Currents can be strong, but they help to create this vibrant playground made of colorful soft corals, schools of barracudas of several hundred individuals who come to meet the divers, schooling trevally, schools of jacks, scorpionfish, Napoleon wrasse and many more. Turtles are known to like this place. Often encounters with majestic pelagic mantas are also possible in Four Kings, who use the shallow plateaus as a cleaning station. Another example of the incredible amount of marine life that calls this dive site home, are schools of bigeye jacks, batfishes and fusiliers and in the right time, you may even witness some fishes in their mating dance. Fish life is outstanding; colorful panoramas and critters such as pygmy seahorses, nudibranchs, flatworms, long nose hawk fish, pipefish and the list keeps going.

    Paradise for the photographers

    Four Kings, with its particular topography, pelagic action, soft corals, great diversity of fishes, will satisfy the most demanding of underwater photographers. When it comes to reef colors, expect to see the entire spectrum of the rainbow’s tones, red, yellow, green, turquoise, orange and so on, they are all painted on the reef. The explosion of colors is due to the great abundance of corals, brought by the diversity of sea fans and other soft corals, which colonize the rocky surface. The abundance of life and colors is such that you won’t know where to look or photograph, so better return for a second or third dive.
