Diving Papua Safari Raja Ampat


Diving Safari to Papua Raja Ampat is the trip to the place where the diving honestly can not get any better.

Raja Ampat basicaly casts a spell on all who visit – scientists, photographers, novice divers and crusty sea-salts alike. This group of majestic islands, located in the northwestern tip of Indonesia’s Papuan “Bird’s Head Seascape,” lies in the heart of the coral triangle, the most bio-diverse marine region on earth. This is what most people and scuba divers come to Raja Ampat for! Several surveys by marine biologists have found that these islands of the "Coral Triangle", have the very highest marine biodiversity in the World, with many kinds of coral and fish which is unmatched anywhere else. The diving in many places is still limited as the number of resorts and liverboats operating around is still not really high. Every diver who decides to dive Raja Ampat will be able to find and underwater paradise. Many call it the Amazonia of the Oceania.
Probably the most publicized image of Raja Ampat is that of the lagoon in Wayag a spectacular group of rock islands in the northwest of the region. At Southeast Misool at the archipelago's opposite end the scenery gets for many even more spectacular. Both of these spots are remote and won't be seen by most visitors who stay at the most accessible resorts or bungalows in the most visited central part of Raja Ampat. Althought breathtaking scenery can still be found central part of Raja Ampat too. Kabui Bay and the Mayalibit Bay of Waigeo, the "hidden bays" of Gam and Penemu offer similar rock formations with each one having its own unique charm.
As stunningly beautiful above water as it is below, Raja Ampat (which literally translates as “The Four Kings”) has a startling diversity of habitats to explore.

In OK Divers we co operate on our exploration to Raja Ampat with Grand Komodo operator and their boats. They are reliable partner for us already for few years. We like their boats, facilities, food and the way they go around hospitality. We like to give our customers only the best service while they dive with us so after many good experiences we had with while diving with Grand Komodo it was a obvious choice.
