Raja Ampat Liveaboard Diving

Raja Ampat diving is an unbelievable experience regardless of the itinerary. However, by far the most popular itinerary is North & Central because that is where the most popular dive sites can be found such as: Blue Magic, Chicken Reef, Melissa’s Garden or Eagle Rock and Black Rock.

Liveaboard diving in Raja Ampat will enable divers to do at least 3 dives per day with occasional night dives where possible. The dives start early morning and typically finish in the afternoon with approximately 2 hours surface intervals.

When not diving, relax on the deck, bask under the tropical sun, or stargaze in the clear night skies. Share stories with fellow divers, enjoy freshly prepared meals, and perhaps even pick up new diving skills from seasoned instructors onboard.

Open each specific trip in our schedule below to be able to see details about the itinerary, dive sites, and estimated timings.

Our Raja Ampat liveaboard trips start and finish in Sorong. Airport and hotel transfers are included in the liveaboard package and with flexible timing which will allow immediate boarding on the start date of the trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

What time should my flight arrive in Sorong?

Ideally to be able to allow our itinerary to run smoothly we like to have all divers on-board at approximately lunch time. Check-dive follows soon after.

Check-out is flexible and according to scheduled flights. The boat is arriving back in Sorong early morning. We are considerate to delayed or cancelled flights and immediately provide assistance when needed.

After I arrive in Sorong, when can I go on the boat?

Right away! We will handle the airport transfer for you. From the Sorong airport there is an 30 minutes car trip to the harbour where we will board the liveaboard as soon as we arrive.

With whom do I share the cabin?

If you have not booked a single occupancy cabin, you will be sharing the cabin with a same-sex cabin mate which we carefully assign based on specific information and profiling we gather during the booking process.

Currently only the Sea View Balcony cabins have adjustable beds that can convert between king size and twin size beds. We will be adjusting the standard Sea View cabin beds as well at first immediate availability.
