Situated off the northwest tip of the Bird's Head Peninsula on New Guinea Island, The Bird’s Head seascape, comprises over 2,500 small islands, cays, and reefs. These islets are a picture postcard setting with their white sand beaches and rainforest-topped Karst islands sprouting like mushrooms from a turquoise sea. They are also famous for their exceptional sea fauna. According to Conservation International, the diversity of marine life is greater than any other area sampled in The Coral Triangle, making the region home to the richest coral reef ecosystems in the world. Your ship will spend some time in the region to take advantage of the multitude of experiences that await.
