Albatross passage

#1 - Albatross passage

Papua New Guinea, New Ireland

At an incoming tide this narrow passage is like fish soup. Eagle Rays, Mobula Rays, big Dogtooth Tunas, Barracudas, plenty of Grey Reef Sharks and loads of other fish can be seen here on almost every dive. The wall itself is overgrown with big fan corals, black corals and sponges and this is the home for small creatures like Nudibranchs, Leaf Scorpionfish and Pygmy Seahorse. In our opinion Albatross is the best dive in the Kavieng area and a must for every visiting diver (www.lissenung.com)

Drift around the southern point of the island. Better starting on the left side and ending on the right side at about a nice small white sand beach breaking through the reef. Lots of fish and fan corals. Access by boat, 20-25 min. from Kavieng

This is probably the most beautiful drift dive in Kavieng. Fantastic hard corals in the shallows and huge fan corals from 20m (65ft) downwards make a beautiful scenery. And as you drift along you may see Mobula Rays, Turtles, Sea Snakes and of course some Sharks (www.lissenung.com)
