Raja Ampat, which in Indonesian means the Four Kings, is a Marine Park world renowned for being the epicentre of marine biodiversity. The park covers a large area with approximately 170 nautical miles separating the northern and southern extremities. It would be possible to dive for weeks and weeks without seeing the same sites twice.
Raja Ampat can be divided into three sections covering the North, Central and Southern Sections. Spectacular scenery both above and below the water make this heritage area unique and a bucket list item for both divers and lovers of nature.
Our 9 night cruises take in sites in the Northern, Central and Southern Sections of the national park. Whereas the 7 night cruises visit the Northern and Central Sections.

Please note: Due to weather and diving conditions, it's not always possible to visit each dive spot. Your Cruise Director will decide the best ones to visit at the time of diving. GOSEA requires that you have 30 logged dives to join this trip. If you are an Open Water Diver, some dives are below 18m therefore we recommend having advanced experience or taking your PADI Advanced Open Water course on board to maximise your enjoyment from the trip. All diving is made from zodiacs to give precise entry and exit points. Currents can vary from really gentle to extremely strong. Inexperienced and beginner divers may find some dives challenging and may be asked by the Cruise Director to skip dives that are not suitable for their diving experience.
