True North Adventure Cruises, 7 Night The Whale Sharks of Cenderawasih Bay
West Papua is the last frontier of the Indo-Pacific and deep in the heart of this flourishing equatorial wilderness is a biodiversity hotspot – Cenderawasih Bay, the Bay of the Birds of Paradise. See the biggest fish in the world interacting with traditional fishermen. Whale sharks gather each morning to be hand-fed sardines, begging like giant puppy-dogs before inhaling bucketful’s of ravenously anticipated sustenance. Then snorkel with these gentle leviathans for hours enjoying countless breath-taking encounters. While these encounters are a cruise highlight, this voyage around the northern coast of West Papua offers a great deal more including exotic Islands, stunning coral reef and fascinating cultural interaction. We look forward to your company aboard the TRUE NORTH as we continue our exploration of this stunning region.
