    Triton Bay & Kai Islands Cruise

    Two rivers pour their waters into the Triton Bay, while rich up-wellings from the deeper basins of the Banda sea feed the reefs formed around its islands. This unusual combination makes for a very special environment, where the lower-than-average visibility is compensated by lush reefs covered in soft corals, large black coral bushes in unusual colors (like fluorescent yellow or white), thick schools of reef fish and a vast array of critters in the dark sands of its shores.

    Whalesharks also come attracted by the little anchovies captured by the large outrigger boats fishing at night with the help of lights, and ancient rock art can be witnessed in the limestone walls of the islands.

    The Kai Islands (also Kei Islands) of Indonesia are a group of islands in the southeastern part of the Maluku Islands, located in the province of Maluku. The Moluccas have been known as the Spice Islands due to regionally specific plants such as nutmeg, mace, and cloves that originally intrigued the European nations of the 16th century.

    Outside the bay, underwater seamounts are often visited by mantas, and the reefs around Kai islands have some of the most beautiful powder white sand beaches of the entire archipelago.

    Kai Besar in particular is mountainous and densely forested. Kai is famous for the beauty of its beaches, notably in Pasir Panjang. The indigenous inhabitants call the islands Nuhu Evav (Evav Islands) or Tanat Evav (Evav Land), but they are known as Kai to people from neighboring islands.
