Itineraries

RAJA AMPAT

Our dive trips to Raja Ampat can be divided into different parts that we will adapt to the personal taste of the group. They all share the same underwater magic and around them one can see some of the best sites in the world, paradise below and above.

MISOOL
Once you arrive in Misool, you are surrounded by one of the most fascinating landscapes you can imagine. Hundreds of small islands all shaped by time into sculptures that only nature can produce. The topside it's out of this world but once your head is under the water you start to understand the concept of variety of colours. The soft corals are unbelievable, all kind of colours and at all depths. It is not unusual to be among a dozen of different ones only a metre or two down!!!

In between the islands the currents flow and countless fans have decided to live there and surprise us during every dive, yes!! There are some nudies and lots of pygmies (different species at every possible depth). For sure the amount of tropical colourful fish among those fans and the beautiful colours of the soft corals will stay in our memories for a long time!!

KRI AREA
Close to the Kri resort there is outstanding diving. Probably the corals are less spectacular than in Misool, but that is compensated by the schools of fish like in Sardine reef and Kri corner. These sites are just fabulously filled with fish and pelagic action is always expected. At the west site of Mansuar area mantas can be seen in great numbers.

PENEMU
Dive sites like Melissa's Garden, and Barracuda Point are not to be missed. Here we have a change in scenery. The hard corals are more abundant, and although the fish life is as good as it gets, the barracudas and the wobbegong sharks will be our main goals.

In between the island there are great drift dives among gorgonians. We are normally welcomed by a school of friendly bumphead parrot fish and sweetlips.

WAIGEO
For the enthusiastic of macro photography here you will get the best chance of the trip. Pygmies, small crustaceans of all kind, nudies…The night dive under the pier of the pearl farm will be probably the best of the trip. A couple of wobbies sleep there, epaulette sharks come curiously to see us and all the night lovers wake up and expose themselves to our lights.

Of course for some others this place means shopping at the pearl farm!!!!

Raja Ampat is the centre of the area with the biggest variety of underwater life in the whole world. Other options for you to choose from: going north to Kawe (diving crossing the equator…) and Wayag ( the best top site ever seen by our eyes) or spend some time in Batanta. Among the rare picturesque dragonets, spotting mandarin fish, mimic octopus and blue ringed octopus .This is the only real muck dive area.
