The itinerary starts and ends from Tarakan, a large modern city , which has an international airport and multiple daily direct flights from Jakarta. Making the trip an connections quite easy for international travellers.

The Raja Ampat itinerary combines the best dive sites of Dampier Strait, Fam, Mansuar and the awesome dive sites of Misool, the best diving area of Raja Ampat.

Here the Pacific Ocean meets the Halmahera Sea, with an explosion of marine life as consequence. With regular strong currents, big fish feel especially comfortable. Manta rays, reef sharks, different schools of mackerel, tuna and barracuda, dolphin and whales.

The night dives under the Arborek or Cape Mansuar jetty is a favourite spot with peculiar creatures such as wobbegongs, epaulette sharks (walking sharks), nudibranchs, pipefish, seahorses, frogfish, scorpion fish and the list goes on..

Misool is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world. The rich variety of reefs are also not to be overlooked with vertical walls, slopes, dry rocks, caves and lagoons; some covered with hard corals while the others are covered with brightly coloured soft corals. Also renowned as the centre of pygmy seahorses and gorgonians, everywhere you go you will be amazed by the profusion of marine life that Raja Ampat has to offer you.

At this site there is a huge crack, about 18 to 20 meters down and reaching into the reef for about 30 meters was formed by the earthquakes which caused the 1992 tsunami.
< br /> The crack is about 70cm wide, so it isn't possible to swim in. Table corals and other hard corals growing here have started to close the gap, but if you swim on top you can see down into the inner structures of the reef.
< br /> Apart from plenty of nudibranchs, shrimps and crabs we also found several species of flatworms and on the very edge of the reef two yellow-brown leaffishes and further down a beautiful purple one in a sponge under a overhang there was even a small giant frogfish! If you are lucky it is possible to see hammerhead sharks here, eagle rays and turtles, since you are facing towards open water.

Fish Soup

Komodo & Lesser Sunda, Indonesia

The underwater landscape is very impressive with huge Gorgonian sea fans, a dramatic precipice where sharks, jacks and rays congregate and a beautiful coral garden to finish the dive!

Between the mainland and Pangabatan there is a channel which is about 2 km wide. The current flowing through can be quite fierce, so this dive site is only for experienced divers.

There is a good chance to see eagle rays, marble rays, mackerels and tunas and on the sand between the corals often lie white tip sharks or cowtail rays.

A good place for large fish and sharks but you can also find some interesting small animals for example a rare whiskered pipefish, nudibranchs and several leaffish, crocodile fish, mantis shrimps and cuttlefish.
