The offshore reef sites of Sorido Bay Resort, especially those near Kri Island are populated with megatons of schooling fish. Many different species school in the current so that sometimes a diver is surrounded by a chaotic mass of fish life. The most common to see are Barracuda, Jacks, Bannerfish, Surgeonfish, Fusiliers, Parrotfish and Snappers. Along, around, and on top of the corals are many fish, some that are considered to be rare in many parts of the world are abundant in the Raja Ampat area.
Wobbegong Sharks are found on many dives, often lying atop perfect table corals like a fish carefully arranged by a chef on a dinner plate. The Epaulette Shark, a small shark only a foot long, is numerous and found very often during night dives in the sea grass or even on the shelf of a wall dive.
Sorido Bay Resort, in Kri Island, is the ideal destination for divers who enjoy peace and solitude on a deserted island surrounded by luxurious amenities and friendly attentive service. The diving facilities are top of the line.
