Mapia Atoll, historically known as the Freewill Islands, is an atoll in the Pacific Ocean,  located in Papua, Indonesia, approximately 290 kilometers north of the city of Manokwari and 630 kilometers from the islands of Palau. The trip: The corals here are vibrant and healthy, and the reef fish stocks are impressive! The entrance to the channel pass is one of the best dives on Mapia, with huge aggregations of fish on a rising tide (jacks, barracudas, sailfin snapper and abundant grey reef sharks). The southern point of the atoll is likewise magical, as were numerous sites along the western wall – with sharks (including the occasional hammerhead and silvertip) seen on nearly every dive. The Atoll is about 100 Nautical miles north of Manokwari, so it will take around 15-17 hours to reach the atoll. Advanced divers only please.
