The site features a channel, about 25m/82ft wide that can be described as river flowing between the islands of Gam and Waigeo. Mangroves and rainforest cover its shoreline and rare archer fish and soft corals can be seen in the shallow areas. This amazing site offers its visitors numerous quiet grottoes, caves, arches and underwater passages. The nutrient rich waters feed a wide variety of marine life. Underwater photographers will truly enjoy this place.
