Triton Bay lies on the south coast of the West Papua province of Indonesia. If you picture Papua New Guinea as a flying duck, then Triton Bay is just under its “neck” – does that make sense? The Bay is surrounded by tropical rain forests, rising on one side to a 1060m peak. Lengguru River juts into the bay, its mouth extended forward by alluvial deposits. Up-river you’ll find a mixture of traditional village buildings and modern homes with iron roofs. Under the water of the Bay are beautiful soft corals – indeed, 959 types of coral fish and 471 types of coral. In these waters Bryde’s whales (to 12m) find their home.

In one section the high limestone cliffs display extensive pre-historic drawings and carvings coloured orange, white and black – truly breath-taking. On the shore-line and up river take a Zodiac to visit the villages. Nearby this region is where Alfred Russel Wallace, the contemporary and equal of Charles Darwin, wrote of his explorations in “The Malay Archipelago” (his book title) around 1858. He sent thousands of wild-life specimens to the British Museum, to show Europeans the beauty of Birds of Paradise, though of course today they are protected. Needless to say, very few visitors ever get to this region – it is indescribably special.

Triton Bay is known for displaying a similarly impressive level of soft coral coverage as places like Misool Island. Epaulette sharks can be seen walking over the reefs as giant groupers lurk in sheltered spots, while schools of jacks and fusiliers dart around en masse. Squadrons of bumphead parrotfish charge around chomping the coral into fine sand, watched by ever-present turtles. Triton Bay's black coral forests are awesome in scale and never fail to impress. Above the water is also fascinating with lush green landscapes and ancient cave paintings which root the people to their ancestral land.
