Raja Ampat – The Home of the Four Kings
Exploring this remote part of Indonesia is a dream come true for most divers and non-divers.
Raja Ampat consists of nearly 40,000 square kilometers of land and sea, with more than 1,500 islands spread across the northeastern part of Indonesia. This region is part of the Bird’s Head of Papua Barat, a name given for its topographic resemblance to the body of a bird.
The Bird’s Head of Papua Barat is the heart of the Coral Triangle, true to its reputation as having the most bio-diverse marine ecosystem in the world.
Not only does this area have traffic from sharks, oceanic mantas, numerous species of whales and dolphins, we can also encounter some of the smallest species in the oceans such as pygmy seahorses, thecaceras, pipehorses, and of course, the endemic epaulette shark.
Visit mangrove forests, explore caves, relax on virgin beaches, witness local villages and trek to find the famous birds of paradise. Encounter gorgeous landscapes while kayaking or snorkeling around perfect reefs—Raja Ampat has it all for you!
Explore Raja Ampat with 13 nights and 28 dives throughout this vast area.
This will be 11 nights on board the Samambaia, giving us enough time to explore and witness the best that this region has to offer. Operating since 2010, this 40-meter Indonesian pinisi has been our primary charter vessel since its maiden voyage. You can rest assured the Abyss team and crew of the Samambaia will deliver you an exceptional vacation.
