Cruise to Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat Islands are situated on West coast of Indonesian’s province West Papua. Although the islands are among the best dive spots of Indonesia, they are still wild, not flooded with a wave of tourists. Just a few villages are located on the largest islands.

Beautiful coral reef combined with a rich underwater life can easily guarantee amazing dives:  shools of fish (f.e. tunas, barracudas, horse mackerels), large reef fish (like napoleons, snappers, groupers, sloth bears) and manta rays.

Safari covers  North and Central islands: Mansouar, Fam, Wayag, Waigeo, Batanta and many more small islands.
