Located on the islet of Kordiris, which is separated from the Gam Island mainland by the wildlife rich Dore Dor mangrove waterway, Kordiris Dive Homestay lies in the shelter of the point at the western end of a perfect white sand bay. The winding mangrove filled waterways and dense jungles of Dore Dor are a birdwatchers paradise, alive with hornbills, sea eagles, eclectus parrots, kingfishers, herons… the list goes on.

The sandy beach at Kordiris offers great snorkelling over seagrass and reef. Dugongs can sometimes be seen in the bay at front of the homestay and walking sharks are regular visitors. Whales can be observed further offshore from the homestay as they move through the strait in April and May.

The jungle behind Kordiris is home to kuskus, squirrel-like tree rats, black king cockatoos and bush fowl that build huge nest mounds in the forest.

Diving with Kordiris Dive Homestay

Kordiris Dive Homestay has an on-site dive center and offers guided dives at all the popular Dampier Strait sites. Dives (all inclusive with boat, guide and gear hire) cost IDR 500,000 per dive. If you have all your own equipment, you can dive for IDR 400,000 per dive.

For every 9 dives that a guest pays for, Kordiris offers that guest a tenth dive for free.

Equipment is available for 19 divers, and Kordiris’ dive boat carries emergency oxygen and a first aid kit.
