Some dive resorts in the archipelago are listed below:
  • Meridian Adventure Scuba Dive Resort, and Marina,
  • Raja Ampat Dive Resort (RADR) - It is located in the southern region of Waigeo island near the entrance waters to Kabui bay. I used to stay in the resort several time and also took a short dive excursion to Mioskon island. Trees that cover the bungalows provide cool environment.

  • Papua Paradise Eco Resort, 
  • Raja Ampat Dive Lodge - located in Mansuar island it offers dive excursions to various dive spots in the region.
  • Papua Explorers Dive Resort - it is located in GAM island. I and my friends used to visit it once. Its bungalows are large and built on the water facing Kri island. 
  • Raja Ampat Doberai Eco-resort - it is located in Urai island at the entrance to Kabui bay. Because of its secluded location, it gives the impression to guests that they stay in a private island. I often pass by the resort by boat when I guide tourists on sightseeing tour to Kabui bay between Gam and Waigeo
