Raja Ampat Diving

Dive the Heart of the Coral Triangle!

Do you want to know how to get people excited? Start talking about your dive trip to Raja Ampat!

Raja Ampat, the Four Kings is nature and diving on steroids.

From the ocean’s underwater realm you will witness the mesmerizing majesty of oceanic mantas acrobatic feeding displays to the sentinel sharks patrolling the depths, and the huge herds of colorful parrot fish moving over shallow undisturbed coral fields  stretching to the ocean’s horizon. Raja Ampat is a Dive Lovers Paradise!

Eco Diversity, Divers who have logged thousands of dives are surprised to see things they have never seen before. Every dive is different in Raja Ampat and every dive site has new treats.  Manta Dive Raja Ampat

There are more documented species of fish here than any where else in the world with  over 1500 species and counting! You will be amazed to find over 500 different types of Hard and Soft corals, in every color you can imagine.

The Coral Triangle is the area where the Pacific and Indian oceans meet. With both oceans mixing via currents that bring rich nutrients welling up to the surface from the ocean depths feeding a food chain with so much  food allowing for every possible ecological niche to be filled with amazing creatures, many of which are endemic to  this area only!

Raja Ampat Advanced Diving

Sharks, barracudas and groupers at are the top of the food chain.  You will find sharks cruising around in the depths and coming in close to the reefs for feeding in the early mornings and late evenings. The shallower waters  have Barracudas, either schools of the Chevron and Long noses, or the monster sized Great barracudas that look like torpedoes with teeth. Unless provoked Barracudas are very rarely dangerous to divers

Healthy reefs here you will see very small patches of sand occasionally and we are talking reefs that are so long that you cannot dive them in one dive. Drifting over these reefs is a moving picture show of coral and wildlife ever changing as you move down and then up in the water column.

Advanced Diving sites are for  advanced divers only with drift and current dives under your weight belt. We want you to be able to safely dive these  sites like Mikes Point and Ouwn Reef where strong currents are encountered often. The upside of diving  strong currents is this is where you will find huge congregations of fish including the big top level predators like sharks.

Warm Water  You can comfortably dive in a bathing suit here with no problems!

The Last Eden. Being hard to get to has its advantages!
