Route

12-days / 11-nights

Set sail from Sorong at the western edge of Papua, for a 12-day/11-night cruise, ending back in Sorong. Raja Ampat means ‘Four Kings’. In an archipelago of over 1,500 small islands there are four main islands or ‘kings’– Waigeo, Salawati, Batanta, Misool. The majority of Raja Ampat is in Marine Protected Areas and it is a shark and ray sanctuary.

Raja Ampat offers the most striking biodiversity on the planet. 600 species of coral are found in Raja Ampat – the entire Caribbean Sea has only 58 species. 1,669 species of fish have been recorded to date. 374 fish species were identified during one 90-minute dive at Cape Kri in Dampier Strait and there are 42 fish species are native to the region.



This area is known for its vibrant underwater colours but also its majestic landscapes, making it a perfect destination for keen photographers. The only problem with diving here is that you’ll be so spoiled by the near-perfect conditions that you may never want to leave.

Arenui will cruise all over Raja Ampat. From the south east of Misool best known for its outstanding, technicolour reefs and for being pygmy seahorse heaven! To Dampier Strait for it’s big action - seamounts, sharks, including the fabulous Wobbegong, and schooling fish.

In Raja Ampat there is the opportunity to see two species of manta rays – reef manta and giant manta. Manta Sandy is well known for reef manta rays, as it is one of the most consistent spots for finding congregating mantas. It’s easy to spend a whole dive observing these majestic animals as they somersault through the water while being cleaned. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to witness the unforgettable sight of what is called a ”manta train”, where a dozen or more mantas glide around and follow each other head-to-tail. At Blue Magic and in Dampier Strait it is possible to spot the majestic giant manta ray.

The list of marine life you may see on a Raja Ampat trip is endless. Here is a short list of the most popular sightings: five types of pygmy seahorse; wobbegong sharks; pipefish; cuttlefish; blue-ringed octopus; walking shark; toad fish; stonefish; hundreds of schooling scads; ghost pipefish; juvenile batfish; velvet fish; waspfish; coconut octopus; helmut flying gunnards; huge schools of fusiliers, snappers, surgeons, batfish and barracuda; black tip, white tip and grey reef sharks; manta rays; turtles; and glorious nudibranchs.

Visit the wonderful Tomolol cave for the opportunity to float through this gigantic cave with huge stalactites and stalagmites. This adventure is surely a once in a lifetime experience. We also visit our favourite village on the island of Arborek. There is a new viewpoint on Penemu island that looks out over the scenic islands and lagoons. Wooden steps allow you to climb high up onto one of the peaks to take in the view below.

These islands usually experience varying visibility depending on the weather conditions and warm water around 27-30C (81-86F).
