From Raja Ampat to North Sulawesi, passing by Halmahera, this trip is definitely one of the most varied diving you can get in Indonesia. Raja Ampat, one of the furthest places you can get to in Indonesia and the diver’s mecca that relatively divers should not miss. The location of the islands, most of which are remote from the nearest towns, makes the reef pure and seemingly untouched. The wide area of pristine blue water contains millions of reefs and fishes, many that you will never find anywhere else. Above the ground, small but soaring islands invite you to climb their peaks, while in between your excursions the friendly locals or your crew will have fun with you.
