Snorkeling Tour in Raja Ampat Islands

Isanak Beach
I usually organize a snorkeling tour to north eastern region of Raja Ampat based on the following itinerary:

Day 1
Leaving Sorong city for Waim island by motorized boat - snorkeling
Continuing trip to Sopen village
Village Tour to see Papuan people in their daily life
Overnight stay
Front waters of Fish Lagoon
Day 2
Wake up early in the morning, going by motorized boat for Wararaf forest - hiking and watching Paradise birds,
Back to Sopen village - brunch
Snorkeling at Mamiaef island
Continue trip to Fish Lagoon - exploring the karst islets
Overnight stay in Yen Papir village
Day 3
Hiking and camping in the forest near Fish Lagoon
Day 4
Hiking and camping in the forest and wildlife watching
Coral Reef at Isanak Beach of
Raja Ampat archipelago
Day 5
Walking back to the beach
Transfer by boat to Yen Papir - wash
Going back to Sorong

Cost: It depends on the number of participants. It is very expensive to travel alone. I highly suggest that the number of participants should be at least 4 people to share the cost.

The cost includes transfortation by motorized boat between Sorong and north-east Raja Ampat islands, food, payment to local guides, and land owners, basic accommodation at the villager's house and in tents in the jungle.
The cost does not include: airfare, accommodation in a hotel in Sorong before and after the tour, travel insurance and other personal expenses.
Please, bring:
Your own snorkeling equipment, flashlight, sun-block-lotion, clothing that is suitable for beach, and tropical weather.

Please, consider the above itinerary as reference only, it can be adjusted depending on the weather condition.
