Diving Raja Ampat
If weird and wonderful underwater creatures is something you enjoy, then Raja Ampat is a must see. Regarded by scientists as one of the richest places on Earth for marine life, the biodiversity here is unmatched.
Raja Ampat has it all - drift dives, muck dives, clear water mangroves that live alongside coral and even some war wrecks. There are areas where soft corals and fans dominate while other areas offer incredible hard corals. There are seagrass beds, blue water mangroves, shallow reefs, drop offs, caves, black sand and white sand bottoms.
