Aboard the Dewi Nusantara, a hand built beautiful wooden ship. "Goddess of the
Archipelago" is the translation of the name. Spacious, great crew, luxurious
amenities including full size showers, terrific food. Almost "too nice" to be a dive boat!
Triton Bay is remote, it's in Western Papua and a four flight journey to get to and
from New York. Diving is interesting although the water clarity isn't the best. An
advantage is being sheltered as there were storm conditions in the area and if we
weren't here in the bay, we wouldn't have been diving.
Some wonderful huge schools of swirling fish and some new species for us. Of
particular note were the many Angelfish, including the Blue Ring. It's not common,
we saw one in Bali in 2012 but in Triton Bay they were on pretty much every dive.
