ABOUT THIS LIVEABOARD

This seven day and six-night itinerary will take you from Sorong Harbor into Raja Ampat. This area is perhaps the most diverse area for diving in the world. There are marine surveys which state, over 1,300 species of coral reef fish, 600 species of hard coral and some 50+ species of mantis shrimp, call the Raja Ampat archipelago home. In this array of species, you have green and hawksbill turtle rookeries, the worlds largest Pacific Leatherback Turtle nesting beaches, as well as whale and dolphin aggregations. Literally translated as Four Kings, it is still considered a remote frontier region in the province of West Papua, Indonesia, which, to this day, is still being explored for diving. Perhaps you will find a new species? Aboard this luxury Phinisi vessel, as part of the Sea Safari fleet, you are assured of the excellent food, the best diving and of course the best service around.
