Dive Raja Ampat
The diving in Raja Ampat is absolutely fantastic and arguably amongst the very best you will find anywhere. There are more recorded species here than anywhere on the planet as confirmed by Dr. Mark Eardman of Conservation International. This is the epicentre of marine biodiversity.
Raja Ampat liveaboard diving or the Sorido Bay Resort
You can dive Raja Ampat by liveaboard, stay in the south at Misool Eco Resort or, as we have chosen to, in the north at Sorido, a tiny seven bungalow resort. The marine life is more plentiful in the north whilst the soft corals are the draw in the south. However, either would be wonderful, but if you want to combine the two and have the time available, then a liveaboard is the way to go, but bear in mind they are some 150 miles apart or a full 24 hours steam on a liveaboard.
All in all, and at the risk of overselling the place, our trip to Raja Ampat certainly delivered diving that is amongst the very best we have ever experienced, if not the best. When all this comes together, as it does mostly, it is incredible and truly breathtaking, stunning, amazing, gobsmacking, fantastic…
Thank you for organising everything so well.
The Wakatobi organisation from start to finish is very professional. They really do take care of you from the moment you arrive at the airport to everything they offer here. The diving is extremely well organised if a little regimented and the reefs are very colourful and full of life but not quite as special as Raja Ampat.
