It is a dream come true for most divers and non-divers who are privileged enough to explore this remote area of Indonesia.
The region that is called Raja Ampat comprises of nearly 40,000 km2 of land and sea, with over 1,500 islands spread across the north eastern region of Indonesia. This region is part of the Birds Head of Papua Barat, a name given for its topographic resemblance to the body of a bird.
