Climb the dramatic limestone peaks of Wayag, kayak through tropical mangroves, and relax on one of the many untouched white sand beaches.
Incredibly remote and almost completely undisturbed by humans, the islands and cays of Raja Ampat are considered by many as the most beautiful in the world. Renowned for its amazing diversity of marine life, the archipelago boasts some of the richest coral reef ecosystems on earth. The islands’ jungles are home to rare birds of paradise, with treks to watch their early morning dances a highlight of any trip to this tropical paradise.

Diving in Raja Ampat

At the intersection of the Indian and Pacific Ocean, Raja Ampat teems with life, fed by deep sea currents funnelling nutrients into the sea. Dives may take in coral reefs, blue-water drop-offs, mangrove flats or seagrass beds. Manta Ridge in central Raja Ampat is the best location to see mantas, where up to 30 rays gather at cleaning stations about 6m deep. With strong currents, you’ll need to hold on to something. Waigeo offers divers drift dives and sightings of green sea turtles, Indian lionfish, large wrasse, white and black tip sharks to name but a few. The coral reefs at Yangelo islands are amongst the most colourful in the area and are home to wobbegon sharks.

Indonesia’s shark fishery industry is the largest in the world. Since 2010, Raja Ampat has been part of the Shark and Ray Sanctuary, providing these animals a safe haven to reproduce.

ITINERARY

DAY ONE – Sorong to Penemu

Tiger Blue will be moored 30-60 minutes from near the airport, making your transfer by car and tender a relatively short journey. Settle in and enjoy your first meal on board. Overnight sail to Penemu.

DAY TWO – Secret Bay to Wayag
Following a gourmet breakfast, head off snorkelling or diving before a leisurely lunch. In the afternoon, take your pick between wakeboarding, waterskiing, kayaking or relaxing on board. Then take the tender to visit a secret bay and embark on a short trek on foot which ends in a blaze of colour at sunset. Overnight sail to Wayag.

DAY THREE – Wayag & Bonfire on the Beach

Climb the peaks of Wayag to survey the limestone outcrops from above – an iconic vista full of lush greens and turquoises. After lunch, choose between snorkelling, diving or any other watersports before a cocktail party relaxing on the beach beside a roaring bonfire, watching hundreds of stars appear in the night sky.

DAY FOUR – Kawe to Aljui Bay

Set sail early in the morning to Kawe. Cross the equator underwater while you snorkel or dive surrounded by huge manta rays. After lunch, sail to Aljui Bay, home to the best night-diving in Raja Ampat. Enjoy a relaxed dinner on board.

DAY FIVE – Pearl Farm & Wofoh

Learn how cultured pearls are made at the Atlas pearl farm in the morning. After lunch, explore the bay with a boat tour taking in limestone cliffs, rocks, pinnacles, dolphins and exotic birds. Snorkelling, diving and watersports may fill the rest of your afternoon, before cocktails and a BBQ on a peaceful beach. Overnight sail to Pulau Pef.

DAY SIX – Pulau Pef

Pulau Pef’s small inlets, bays and crystal-clear lagoons make the ideal setting for kayaking. Surrounded by giant ancient trees, paddle right up to the mangrove roots reaching into the water. Marvel at pre-historic hand paintings on the limestone cliffs. Snorkel or dive any range of habitats from caverns and overhangs to hard and soft corals, keeping an eye out for pygmy seahorses and the endemic walking shark. After lunch, sail to Yang Efo to dive or snorkel with turtles, stingrays and schools of snapper and fusilier fish before sailing to Yen Beser overnight.

DAY SEVEN – Yen Beser

Before dawn breaks, set off on a trek in search of the rare red birds of paradise, which perform an elaborate courtship display as the sun rises. Puffing up their feathers, vibrating and buzzing, the birds also tip upside down to show off their long tail feathers, which form a heart around them. Then move on to explore the jungle, observing endemic trees and rich fauna. Dive at Meoscon, pause for lunch then relax on a short sail before snorkelling again with manta rays. Overnight sail to Sorong.

DAY EIGHT – Sorong

After breakfast, pack and prepare to disembark, returning to the airport by tender and car.
