The Indonesian archipelago of Raja Ampat lies in the Coral Triangle. This expanse of 40,000 square kilometers of marine territory and pristine reefs make these waters a diving haven second to none. Reputed to be the most biodiverse marine habitat on Earth, Raja Ampat is home to many species not found anywhere else.
Spectacular, is a word often used to describe this region and is irresistible to divers.
Imagine descending into the big blue, encountering a rainbow of colours in the vibrant, thriving reefs. Then the marine life comes alive, as if they know how special they are and want to share their secret. Schools of fusiliers and jacks duck and sway in the currents, bump head parrot fish chomp away on the corals, shy Denise’s pygmy seahorses hide among gorgonian coral, frogfish try to keep themselves expertly camouflaged and white/black tip reef sharks sweep and patrol effortlessly through the sea. Magestic mantas, rare wobbegong and epaulette sharks (walking shark) guarantee plenty of variety and with grey reef sharks, schools of big-eyed trevally and barracudas, they put on a spectacular show.
There are countless dive sites, all with different character. Depending upon weather and wildlife conditions the captain together with the guides will decide on the spot where to go to give all the divers the best possible experience! The ship is well known for its incredible flexibilty.
The dive adventure starts and ends in Sorong. We will stay 12 days/11 nights on the ship and explore the area of Raja Ampat.
There is also plenty to do on land. With a unique speedboat ride you will explore the beautiful scenery.
In between dives you can head out on one of our paddleboards and enjoy the beautiful blue from the surface.
Some species of dolphins and whales (Bryde's whales, pilot whales) spend time in the region.
With over 25 years experience, this ship is the pioneer of liveaboard diving in Indonesia. Lovingly built to the highest standard, by owner Edi Frommenwiler, and meticulously maintained, the ship continues to set the standard with her thoughtfully laid out floor plan and smooth sailing.
The ship offers 8 cabins (double and twin beds), well equipped lounge, a dedicated camera room and a big diving & sun deck!
