For most divers visiting Raja Ampat, Friwinbonda is definitely on their list of dive sites to visit. It is one of the most popular dive sites and is memorable for the extremely large and colourful Gorgonian fans that can be found here. Whilst there are many different colours of fans, a section that is full of pink fans is particularly stunning.

Divers will need to have excellent buoyancy and a good level of experience to ensure they do not damage the sea fans. And whilst divers can visit the dive site throughout the year, the best time for diving is usually between September and mid-December as this is when the seas are calmer and there are more sunny days. This provides better conditions for diving.

The fans are home to many smaller marine life including pygmy seahorses, which are easily spotted hiding amongst the fans. Divers can also spot shrimp, gobies, and blennies darting amongst the coral.

The large and beautiful fans make it a great spot for underwater photography, as they create stunning backdrops for the huge variety of marine life on display. Divers can get excellent pictures of lionfish hunting glassfish or great shots of different types of butterflyfish swimming in front of the large sea fans. Photographers will also get excellent macro shots of the shrimps, crabs, and pipefish that live amongst the sea fans.

The dive site is also home to pelagic fish at around 30 metres. Divers getting down to those depths will likely meet reef sharks, batfish, barracuda, jack fish, and tuna.
