Explore Raja Ampat with Antares, the diving Eden! You’ll be able to see the smallest species such as pygmy seahorses and a great variety of nudibranchs (fans of macro-photography will be well-served!) as well the as bigger pelagic such as reef sharks and manta rays.

Open-water and Advance divers (PADI or equivalent) are qualified to dive in these fabulous sites. No-divers will also enjoy the abundant flora and fauna while snorkeling.
