We are headed back to beautiful Raja Ampat, one of the world’s premier dive locations!  (We went in Feb, 2019, and it was AMAZING!  This is an actively protected marine park!  We knew we had to return!)  There are other high priced live aboards here.  We booked the White Manta live aboard, tried and true and more affordably priced!  If you are interested in a particular State Room, deposit as early as possible.  This trip should sell out, so we book a few years out!   If you are looking for an excellent and affordable live aboard with INCREDIBLE diving in a safe area, you found it!

Raja Ampat or “Four Kings” is the name for these islands, located in the heart of the incredible Coral Triangle! This area of Raja Ampat is known to have the richest coral reef ecosystem in the world!  Topside you’ll see steep jungle covered limestone islands, stunning white sand beaches, hidden lagoons, and dense mangrove forest.  This is a 9.8 million acres national park! Underwater more than 1300 types of fish (23 of which are only found here) 580 types of corals, sharks, rays, turtles, dolphins, and even whales call the park their home.  If you have not experienced the diving in this area, it is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world!  The diversity and abundance of marine life is stunning from large to small, we enjoy it all!  Come join us, and experience it for yourself!  If you have been, Welcome Back!
