The coastal waters of Triton Bay are rich in nutrients washed down from the surrounding hills. As a result underwater life is dominated by filter feeders such as colorful soft corals and black corals. Triton Bay is also very well known for its marine biodiversity. at the southern end of the Bay are healthy coral reefs with plenty of fish life. The area has become popular with divers that use liveaboard boats to explore the reefs and islands of West Papua.
