Fam Island has a number of dive sites all of which are some of the most beautiful spots in Raja Ampat. The whole area is stunning, with clear turquoise lagoons, and deserted beaches. It is close to Kri Island and the dive spots here have some of the best dive walls and coral gardens in the whole area.

The island is well known for being a great place to spot the tasselled Wobbegong shark. This shark is rarely seen outside Australia and New Guinea but it is very common in this part of Raja Ampat. They are a very interesting shark and definitely a unique one. There are around 2 metres and have a broad head and a flattened body, which helps it, hide on the sandy bottom or inside cabbage corals. At Batu Burung, a dive site on the island, they are easily spotted alongside barracuda and manta rays.

The coral here is fantastic as well. There is a slope at around 35 metres that is covered in mushroom corals and sheet corals. There are also many sponges and sea pens as well. Besides the coral and pelagic fish, divers can expect to see blue sided wrasse and big eye bream. There are many different species of angelfish and sea snakes and pairs of rabbitfish are also very common. Like other dive sites on the island, divers will find large numbers of damsel fish, triggerfish, and giant clams.
