I spent 10 days on a diving liveaboard exploring most of Raja Ampat. The area is stunning with 100’s of islands spread around, the life under the water was also stunning and pleased to see no garbage or fishing. The area around Missol was the...More
"With our overall approach we hope to minimize our impact on the environment and maximize conservation efforts"
This doesn't really apply if you drag your kayaks across the coral, destroying it whilst trying to paddle out at low tide, as I have just...More

There is no getting away from it, Raja Ampat is for the adventurous. Mod cons are sparse with power, water, sewage and internet non-existent in many places. If you can get past these inconveniences, and you should, you will have an unparalleled travel experience. Enjoy...More
I spent 4.5 months at the Barefoot Conservation project, and I think I might go back for a second visit.
Joining the project is an excellent opportunity to experience some of the most incredible diving the planet has to offer. The focus is on the...More
This is an unbelievable part of the world. Because it is so remote and takes so long to get to, it's uncrowded. (14 hours LA to Hong Kong, 5 hours to Jakarta, 12 hour layover, 5 hours to Sorong. Then board a boat.) It's really...More
Great corals and Macros- mantas, turtles, sharks, huge schools of fishes. Currently the best coral reef in the world. Papua diving - great and responsible organizing exploring tours both underwater and on the islands. Fam island- small paradise

I went there also with a liveaboard Manta Mae, it was amazing, the ship and the crew. We were nights sailing and during the day diving or doing other activities. The best one for landscape was Waiag, also Mioskon and Pianemo. Arborek Island is nice, they have over there many european young volunteers for protecting the Mantas. I can tell you the spots I’ve dived reading from my log book: Mioskon, Yeben Chanel, Yeben Besar, Waiag Rocks, Mellissa and another place with many Mantas. The marine life is diverse, in Yeben Chanel were huge amounts of fish, many bumphead Parrotfish, in Mioskon I’ ve seen sharks, the worse dive was in Yeben Besar. The other spots I didnt write down.
Raja Ampar was great but the most amazing diving I ‘ve done in Palau, Micronesia.
I hope I’ve helped a little.
we went in April. We did strike 1 storm where it was really rough, but ran from it, and were in sheltered waters after about 4 hours. There are so many islands, the boat can tuck behind to be out of the weather. Except for... More
