Best Time to Dive in Raja Ampat

While the tropical climate here does mean that there can be showers all year-round, the best time to dive in Raja Ampat is from the end of September until the end of April thanks to the calmer seas. The wind then picks up in May until the end of August, causing rougher seas and this means that Misool, in the south, is shut from June to September. From July until September the diving in the north is still lovely, but there are no liveaboards at this time of year.
