MS Caledonia Sky Grounding Raja Ampat Indonesia

MS Caledonian Sky ran aground onto a coral reef near Kri, off Raja Ampat, Indonesia. The Raja Ampat Islands are an Indonesian archipelago off the northwest tip of Bird’s Head Peninsula in West Papua.

According to Hugo Mattson, who is a media producer at Hugo Mattson Media, on March 4, 2017, around 2:00 pm Indonesian time, the cruise ship MS Caledonia Sky grounded on a coral reef and got stuck.

It was right on a dive site called cross-over in Raja Ampat, considered being one of the most marine biodiverse areas in the world. The grounding allegedly caused a 20 meter cut through the reef and destroyed thousands of corals.

Reports say there were 102 passengers aboard.
