Cenderawasih Bay | Damai

Cenderawasih Bay sits atop Indonesia’s Birds Head Seascape on the western half of the island of New Guinea.  Cenderawasih Bay gained notoriety several years ago for being a haven for whale sharks that are regularly spotted in the mornings around fisherman’s platforms.  These platforms, which use large lights and nets at night to attract small silversides baitfish that is sold as bait to offshore fishing vessels also attract the biggest fish in the sea.  The whale sharks would feast on the fish that slipped through the net or were thrown over the side but he fisherman.  The fisherman soon found they could keep the sharks around for several hours by simply feeding them occasionally some of their leftover fish.

The luxurious Damai I will be our vessel for this 11 night trip to visit these giant fish.
