Raja Ampat, Indonesia

The Raja Ampat area of Northwest Irian Jaya is filled with islands, surrounded by reefs and inundated with fish. The Raja Ampat archipelago encompasses nearly ten million acres of land and sea off the northwestern tip of Indonesia’s West Papua Province. Raja Ampat means “Four Kings,” and consists of the four large islands of Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati, and Misool, plus hundreds of smaller islands. Raja Ampat is also located in the “Coral Triangle”, the heart of the world’s coral reef biodiversity, therefore the seas around Raja Ampat possibly hold the richest variety of species in the world.

Diving Information

Dive Season

Raja Ampat diving is superb just about all year round. The term High Season is of little meaning here since there is such an expanse of sea visited by only a few liveaboards that “diver soup” is not really a danger. May to September has light rain, and Mid-July to mid-September sees some small surface swells, but usually not serious enough to interfere with your enjoyment.
