Imagine exploring the most spectacular and – for all but the most privileged few –inaccessible archipelagos on the planet; a realm of uninhabited islands and deserted beaches, remote tribal villages and historic spice-trade sites, pristine coral reefs and dazzling marine life. On Earth Raja Ampat has been described by many scientists as the richest place for Marine life on Earth, a diver’s mecca that relatively advanced divers should not miss. The biodiversity is just amazing with weird and rare underwater creatures everywhere you look and many new species have been discovered over the last few years in the archipelago.Raja Ampat is like heaven for underwater photography with magnificent hard and soft coral, clear water and a teeming reef life. These islands are very rich in macro life with just about all of the kind of critters you can dream of! Certain locations such as Wayag, Panemu or Misol are famous for their panoramic views and bays filled with small mushroom islands which are accessible by our tenders and sea kayaks. There are thousands of potential dive sites.
