Join us as we explore the amazing reefs of Raja Ampat by liveaboard. Raja Ampat is comprised of a vast network of islands and the best way to experience the whole area – from the north’s Dampier Straight to Misool in the south – is by liveaboard. We have chosen to explore it via an iconic wooden sailing yacht built in the local Indonesian style known as a phinisi liveaboard.
From Sorong we will head south towards Misool. The abundance of stunning dive sites and the natural beauty of limestone, jungle-clad islands, means we will have no shortage of places to explore. Misool can be divided into many areas where we can spend the whole day at a selection of amazing dive sites. We will then slowly head north to the Dampier Strait for the last part of the tour.
The region has so much to offer – with spectacular soft corals swaying in the water and sea fan forests that have to be seen to be believed. We can expect several species of reef sharks as well as wobbegong (carpet) sharks, and Epaulette (walking) sharks. We hope to see oceanic and reef manta rays as they come to be cleaned and feed on the plankton on the surface. Turtles (green and hawksbill) abound too, along with schooling fish like jacks, barracuda, and all the brightly colored reef fish we find in the area including butterfly, angel, trigger, parrot, surgeon, sweetlips fishes, and more. Of course, as we will be in the epicenter of marine biodiversity, it means there are plenty of unique critters to be found like blue ring octopus, nudibranchs, and many different species of pygmy seahorse!
