19 April to 2 May 2024 – Dive Trip to Raja Ampat in Indonesia
Diving in raja ampat – in the heart of the coral triangle
Dive trip to Raja Ampat
This dive trip takes you to Raja Ampat in the east of Indonesia. The density of life, the diversity of species and the untouchedness of the underwater world there are unique. New species are discovered almost daily. Hard, horn and soft corals in endless variety adorn the reefs, steep walls and shallow bottoms. The number of dive sites in Raja Ampat is unmanageable. You can jump into the water at any of the islands for an unforgettable dive. Both diving big fish lovers and macro fans will get their money’s worth in the diver’s paradise of Raja Ampat.
On your dive trip to Raja Ampat
The density of life under and over water will surprise you. The biodiversity and the virginity of this area are unique. New species are discovered there almost daily. During the dive trips of the last years we had almost every second dive encounters with the bizarre Wobbegong sharks. Also the endemic living “Walking Shark” and other sharks we often got to see. Mantas so close that they didn’t fit on the image, turtles partly so tame that they swam into the lens of the camera, enormous herds of buffalo head parrotfish and much more is common in Raja Ampat.
During your dive trip to Raja Ampat
you will constantly discover new things under and above water. The biodiversity and the untouched nature of this area are unique. During the dive trips of the last years we had encounters with the bizarre Wobbegong sharks on almost every second dive.
We also often saw the endemic “walking shark” and other sharks. Mantas so close that they didn’t quite fit into the camera, turtles sometimes so tame that they swam into the photographer’s lens, huge herds of bumphead parrotfish and much more is commonplace on a dive trip to Raja Ampat.
Accommodation during dive trip Raja Ampat
Our resort is located directly on the beach of a small island. The bungalows stand on stilts in shallow water. And behind begins the jungle. There are no roads, no mopeds, no disco. But a dreamlike landscape. The dive resort adorns itself with the often abused attribute “ECO”. This time, quite rightly. The accommodation for divers is built of wood, bamboo and natural materials. Generous and very comfortable. For showering you have warm water in a powerful jet European hotel and dive management. The local staff is friendly and makes your stay pleasant and comfortable.
Excursions into the surrounding jungle are offered. Or to the so-called Hidden Bay where you can go into the mangroves or watch Hornbill birds and parrots. This bay is a maze of canals and small lakes that are all connected. Another tour leads to the so-called FAM Island with an unusually beautiful landscape. Or the Batanta Tour to a 60m high and 25m wide waterfall, many butterflies and birds. On request also a visit to a local village and walks. These tours are very individual.

Settling in Phuket
If you want to acclimatize before Raja Ampat you can do so in Phuket. The long-distance flight then goes to Phuket instead of Jakarta. There you take part in the daily dives. As well as a three-day diving safari to Koh Phi Phi and Koh Hah.
The Ambon end of the Raja Ampat trip
If after Raja Ampat you still haven’t had enough of diving or want to slowly get used to civilization again, you can add another 4 days in Ambon to the trip.
