About Raja Ampat

Diversity is the key word for Raja Ampat – diversity of species and diversity of dive sites. The number of known dive sites is greater than 200 and exploration is still underway! Raja Ampat has it all – drift dives, muck dives, clear water mangroves that live alongside coral and even some war wrecks. There are areas where soft corals and fans dominate, other areas have incredible hard corals. There are seagrass beds, blue water mangroves, shallow reefs, drop offs, caves, black sand and white sand bottoms. And not to forget the diverse array of fish in more shapes and sizes than anywhere else in the world, ranging from pygmy seahorses to the top predators. The reefs in Raja Ampat will astound you with its colour and life! According to Conservation International, marine surveys suggest that the diversity of marine life in this region is the highest recorded on earth with over 1,300 species of coral reef fish, 600 species of hard coral (75% of the world’s total) and some 57 species of mantis shrimp.
