40 miles from Sorong
Anchor in 33 metres just off Yenbeser, a small village with a limited supply of fresh produce. The approach is from the south leaving Pulau Friwin clear to starboard. There is good diving and snorkelling around the cluster of rocks visible to the northeast of the village and the jetties offer a good muck dive with common sights of wobbegong sharks and the endemic Raja Ampat epaulette or walking sharks.
Permission to dive around the jetties must be paid from the village at a reasonable fee. An early morning tour can be arranged to see the red bird of paradise on the display trees near the village.
