Diving Raja Ampat must be amazing! The West Papua, Indonesian archipelago is made up of more than 600 islands. There are even more if add in the numerous shoals and cays.
Such a diverse marine environment. Unlike virtually anywhere else on earth. There are more than 300 species of coral and 3,000 species of fishes identified in this remote area.
Raja Ampat Regency is sometimes referred to as the ‘Four Kings’. This title references the four main islands within the chain of islands, Batanta, Misool, Salawati and Waigeo. It is a regency of West Papua, province of Indonesia.
Travelers wanting to enjoy a scuba diving vacation trip into this region will need to plan on staying on one of the many different liveaboard charter boats that service the islands.
Staying on a land resort has nothing on these Liveaboard charter boats. The thrill and excitement is continuous all day and night.
