Arfak Mountains this morning

This is the picture of Arfak mountains that I took with my tablet this morning. The mountains have been a famous destination for visitors who are interested in trekking and birdwatching. As a tourist guide, I can arrange your trip to Mupi Gunung where you will be able to see pristine tropical rainforest and some unique animals such as Tree Kangaroo, Magnificent Birds of Paradise, or giant birdwing butterflies.

Mansinam island

The mountains are across from Mansinam island which is a nice spot for snorkeling and freediving. There is coral reef area that is the natural habitat of various species of fish including parrotfish, damselfish, striped surgeonfish, convict surgeonfish, anemonefish and trevally.
There are a lot of coral reef area that are suitable for snorkeling. Visitors need to bring their own mask, snorkel and fins if they want to explore them.

If you plan to visit Arfak Mountains to see tree kangaroo, or enjoy snorkeling over many coral reef areas in Mansinam island and other parts of Manokwari waters, please, contact me by email to:

Snorkeling in Dorey bay of Manokwari

I went snorkeling or freediving this afternoon. The weather was very nice with clear sky and hot. Unfortunately, the visibility underwater was not so good. I brought an underwater camera with me. It was Canon G1X inside a waterproof case.
I took some pictures of sea stars, and a lot of tropical fish that I saw at the depths between 5 to 10 meters. I also saw anemonefish, parrotfish, moorish idol, and a lot of other fish which I haven't identified.
Here are some of the pictures:
