DESTINATION

RAJA AMPAT

The territory within the islands of the Four Kings is enormous, covering 9.8 million acres of land and sea, home to 540 types of corals, more than 1,000 types of coral fish and 700 types of mollusks. This makes it the most diverse living library for world's coral reef and underwater biota. According to a report developed by The Nature Conservancy and Conservation International, around 75 percent of the world's species live here. When divers first arrive here their excitement is palpable. It's common to hear people praise God as they take in the remarkable scenery. Others prefer to remain in silence taking in the overwhelming sight of so many islands with crystal clear water that softly brushes over the white sandy beaches.

Get Around
Commonly, divers will join a tour and live in a diving resort during their stay in the Raja Ampat Islands. To access diving spots, please contact and use the professional diving organizers, who can be conveniently found in Sorong. You may rent a small boat if you wish to stop and make personal discoveries along the line of the beaches. You can also trek around the islands to find hidden beauties, like waterfalls and ancient caves.

Get There
If you are flying from Jakarta, you can take a six hour flight to Sorong with a stopover in Manado/Makassar/Ambon . Alternatively, you can join a diving tour in Bali and fly from there. Flying from Jakarta/Bali to Sorong, with connecting flights in Makassar or Manado are offered by various airlines. There are also daily ferries available between Sorong and Waisai, capital of the Raja Ampat district on the island of Waigeo. The journey takes between 1.5-2 hours. There are also speedboats for rent  at Sorong.

ITINERARY

SAMPLE ITINERARY - CENDRAWASIH BAY (6 days / 5 nights)

DAY THREE : KWATISORE
Welcome to Kwatisore, the high light of diving in Cenderawasih. This is where you shall see whale sharks (Rhincodon typus), normally they are seen on their own when they are feeding and when they are not feeding they live in more than 1,200 meters below the surface of the water. But here we see them together (adults and juveniles) below the bagans (fishing platforms). Originally when the locals brought up their nets in the early morning catching millions ikan puri (small bait fish) the whale sharks followed the nets and were seen sucking on the nets. This is strange behaviour for the world’s largest fish which normally only eats plankton is truly unique to Kwatisore, it is believed that they get nutrients and oils from the bait fish. So now liveaboards buy the bait fish from the bagan fishermen and then we ask them to slowly throw them back in (on top of the whale sharks), then the whale sharks swim around taking the bait fish in their mouths but the bait fish come back out again via their gills. The whale sharks stay within 10m of the surfaceso it is really easy to snorkel with them.
