Raja Ampat Tour

Motorized boats for exploring Raja Ampat islands
I provide tour package for visitors who are interested in traveling in Raja Ampat. Visitors who take the tour will be able to enjoy snorkeling in a lot of coral reef sites. Based on my personal experience, the coral reef areas that are good for snorkeling can be seen at Yenbuba strait, Nort-West and South West of Mansuar, Sawondarek, Arborek, Pianemo post, Five Rocks, Karst islets of Kabui bay. In addition to snorkeling, visitors can see the beautiful natural scenery of Karts islets of Raja Ampat.
There are a lot of species of tropical fish which visitors can see such as grouper, giant trevally, parrot fish, boxfish, sweetlips, damselfish, wrasse, sharks, and a lot more.

The duration of the tour is 5 days but a more customized trip can be arranged upon request. I can arrange a customized snorkeling, swimming, and sightseeing tours for visitors who want to maximize their holiday in Raja Ampat.
Because the price per tour is very expensive, I highly recommend that visitors go in a group of at least 4 to 6 people to share the cost of transportation, accommodation, food and guides.
