Pulau Dayang Diving: An Overview
Located in a faraway corner of Indonesia, Pulau Dayang is a small tropical paradise just off the coast of Raja Ampat's Bantanta Island. Aside from white sand beaches and fringing palm trees, the island is home to three spectacular dive sites known simply by their orientation: N, S, and SSW.
Pulau Dayang SSW is mostly a macro site, with divers descending down a sandy slope to arrive at a small coral wall roughly 25 metres deep. The wall is home to a wide array of macro life such as mantis shrimp and colourful nudibranchs.
Both Pulau Dayang N and S are subject to strong currents with some good fish life when the current is working. Keep an eye out for wobbegong sharks hiding under ledges in S and for the beautiful soft corals which decorate the sites' overhangs.
It's important to note that the island is a short distance from the Dampier MPA station, and all divers are required to check in at the station before diving in Dayang.
