What makes this trip very special

That’s all-in-1:

Misool & Dampier Strait: Excellent wide-angle, amazing biodiversity with mantas and lots of fish. Colourful soft corals and macro. Batanta in this area is known for the macro dives.

The North: the amazing landscape of the small islands. Great underwater life although less spectacular than the South.

Raja Ampat has often been qualified as the “last frontier” and this is really the feeling you will get in this area: one of the rare untouched places on earth. The topographies of the dive sites are also very diverse and interesting: pinnacles, ridges, walls, caves, rock formations and lagoons…

You will discover the incredible landscapes of this area; during our cruise, we will propose you visit at least one village, a short trek, and many short trips with the dinghies to explore the beaches and other lagoons. Another optional trek is also proposed to look for the Birds of Paradise.

The last dive will be on the penultimate day of the trip at around 10 am. Divers are recommended to wait for 24 hours before flying after the last dive.
