Raja Ampat Travel
The global heart and soul of Earth's marine biodiversity has to be seen to be believed
There is only one place on Earth we visit every year.
Raja Ampat isn’t merely the best place in the world to go snorkelling or diving, it’s a place to discover origins of life.
With 1,800 islands and 25 million years of evolution to explore, Raja Ampat is a place that can blow your mind but you can miss far more than you see if you are unprepared for the scale of what awaits.
There are few places on Earth where so much exists in such a small place, where you can visualise ecosystems functioning completely.
Travel in the company of people deeply connected where there’s chance to see through different eyes and appreciate better why this part of the world is so awe-inspiring.
We're looking forward to helping you discover yourself while you have the adventure of a lifetime.

Our hand-picked partners
There are many ways to experience Raja Ampat but we prefer to recommend places we know well and include some of the best-established operations. Some people prefer a liveaboard, where all activities including most alcohol is included and you can explore a wider variety of locations. In-water activities (snorkelling and diving) are always an option but price varies depending on the number of activities you want to do. Most resorts offer a range of accommodation styles from basic (fan-cooled) to air-conditioned to suit different budgets. Some are better for families and others will suit better, the more discerning traveller. Take a look around and explore the options. We'd be happy to advise you on which combination is likely to best suit you or your family and friends.
