Day 2 – 5 Misool a diving Paradise

  • After sailing for about 10 hours, we’ll arrive at Misool, and we’ll decide where to dive day by day depending on the weather and sea conditions and, of course, following your desires.
  • The island of Misool has some of the best diving in Raja Ampat, with several reefs that can be considered the best in the world! A labyrinth of thousands of small mushroom shape islands forms tiny dots of lagoons with sparkling white sand surrounded by extensive formations that make the Misool one of Earth’s most wonderful places. The land scenery will take your breath away and the underwater scenery that holds some of the richest wildlife in the world.
  • There are three main areas of interest for diving in Misool – the Sagof-Daram, the Southern Archipelagos in the south-east corner of Misool, and the Blue Water Mangroves near the western tip of the main island.
  • In Daram, we’ll dive at Andiamo, a large, stunning reef with a submerged pinnacle covered by sea fans surrounded by schools of fusiliers and batfish, blacktip reef sharks, and napoleon wrasse.
  • Candy Store dive site is covered with huge sponges, beautiful soft corals, and sea fans. In the valleys, schools of Fusiliers, butterflyfish, and barracuda, there is a valley that boils with fish when the current is running at Andy’s Ultimate.
  • In the Warakaratet area at Magic Mountain, there are two cleaning manta stations on the same dive site, one at 25 meters and one right at the top at seven meters. It is one of the only places in the world where you can see oceanic mantas and reef mantas interacting. Magic Mountain is also a nursery for White Tip Reef Sharks and a love nest for Napoleon Wrasse.
  • Boo Rock is known for the “windows” on the end of the largest rock that completely pierce the reef from the surface down to five meters deep. Here you can see an incredible variety of fishes, gorgonians, Barrel sponges, Commensal shrimps, a wide variety of Nudibranchs,  Octopus and Green Turtles, patrolling sharks as well as Wobbegong Shark.
  • Nudi Rock is a small island in the Fiabacet chain, crowded with larger pelagics like Barracuda, Big Eyed Trevally, and Grey Reef Shark, with a wide range of flamboyant nudibranchs lurking among the abundant soft corals and sea fans well populated by pygmy seahorses and cowries.
  • In the Wayilbatan area at Neptune dive site, schools of batfish, trevallies, barracuda, and pygmy seahorses congregate amongst the most spectacular hidden lagoons in the region. This site has sheer walls paved with very colorful sea fans, some of which host tiny seahorses, Hippocampus Barbiganti.
  • Four Kings dive site comprises four underwater pinnacles covered in soft coral and colorful tunicates, with many turtles. Close to 4 Kings, we can dive at Orange Peel, where we’ll see a fantastic orange wall with a coral garden. Dunia Kecil is a superb dive site to spot for pygmy seahorses and “ladybugs.” Hawksbill turtles, crocodile fish, barramundi cod, and juvenile cuttlefish are amongst the other marine creatures that can all be found here. 
  • ‘Kaleidoscope’ is one of the best dive sites in the world, loping down from the limestone island of Jef Pele; on one side, you will find a stunning coral covered wall with tons of fish, and on the other side is a picture-perfect slope. There is a great dividing lip between the two, where large pelagic species feast in front of you as you hang on to your reef hook through the prevailing currents. Another great dive site of this area is‘Turbine’.
  • Farondi area has a unique and distinctive landscape: tunnels, caverns, and colorful walls. It highlights three famous dive spots, Goa Besar, Razonback rock, and Three Sisters.
  • Goa Besar consists of superficial shelved gardens of yellow-colored soft corals, wall tops blanketed with plate corals, leather corals, yellow and purple sea squirts, and rounded hollows filled with coral shrubberies, sponges, and red ornamental ghost pipefish. Three Sisters are three great dive sites paved with life, as the channels between them.

Day 7. Wayag

  • Upon arrival at sunrise to Wayag archipelago, the jewel of Raja Ampat, you’ll enjoy a day amongst the region’s most iconic scenery, and it’s well worth making an effort to climb one of the many island peaks for breathtaking views of the stunning landscapes. Wayag is completely different from what you have seen so far. White beaches with black coral gardens, sweetlips, catfish, and different kinds of rays are part of these dives. Rising abruptly from the sea, small groups of uninhabited islands form a spectacular panorama of jagged limestone cliffs that tower over tiny dome-shaped rocks topped with a wild profusion of trees and vines.
  • Dive site profiles in the north are diverse and range from leisurely swims through lovely hard coral gardens to adrenaline-charged drifts past sloping walls arrayed in Raja Ampat’s signature purple soft corals and Glassfish. We’ll dive at Ikan Campur and Magic Rock.
  • Kayaking along the shoreline of the dramatic limestone islands on sunset will give you a kind of emotion you won’t forget for a long time. In the evening we can enjoy cocktails and dinner barbecue on the beach.

Day 8. Kawe

  • One of the closest islands to the Equator in Raja Ampat, Kawe Island offers spectacular white sand beaches and beautiful scenery, including a lovely waterfall on the island’s western side.

  • In the morning, you will dive at Wofoh Tembok (a wall dive) and in the afternoon at Citrus Ridge and Mayhem or Barracuda in Pulau Yangefo. In the right conditions, you can expect some of the highest voltage diving in Raja Ampat, with currents bringing massive schools of barracudas, three species of Fusiliers, trevallies, batfish, bump head parrotfish, Wobbegongs, as well as black and white tip reef sharks.

Day 2: North-west of Sumbawa

  • Dive 1 & 2: Moyo’s Wall
    Our first dive will be a check dive on the reefs of Moyo Island. Nonetheless, this submerged reef is worth the time. A 50m deep wall is hidden here, and you can spot surgeonfish, black snappers, trevallies, fusiliers, and puffer fish in their natural environment. A stunning little coral garden at 5m makes the perfect safety stop before emerging to the surface again.
  • Dive 3: Satonda
    A nice slope with boomies and white sand is waiting for us. This second dive is an easy dive but magical nonetheless. If time allows, we will trek around Satonda’s lake and watch the bats flying during sunset. In the night, we will set sails towards Komodo National Park.

    Tanjung Batu Monco is the north-western point of Komodo Island. After drifting on a nice rocky slope with possible encounters with bump head parrotfish and devil rays, big rocks come up. Those rocks make a perfect nest for batfish, sweetlips, and nurse sharks. Towards the safety stop, we rest in a shallow coral garden where mantas rays pass from now and then.
  • Dive 2: Sunset/Night Dive around Gili Lawa Darat/Komodo

Day 4 – 5

  • Gili Lawa Laut
    Two famous dive sites await you, just north of GiliLawalaut Island. Crystal Rock and Castle Rock are both incredible locations, boasting the key elements for an impressive dive site: a wide variety of healthy corals covering the reef, plus tons of fish – both big and small and all sizes in between! There are two more exhilarating dives in this area, Cauldron. Between the dives, there is a chance to visit GiliLawalaut Island and take a short trek to the top of the hill for a beautiful view over the Komodo-Flores channel.
  • Crystal Rock
    The rock jutting out of the surrounding crystal clear waters explains how this site got its name. But what is truly memorable here are the large schools of fusiliers and anthias flitting over the gorgeous soft corals and impressive table corals. You can also see large tuna, mackerel, and another fish schooling around a small mound to the northwest in the deep blue. A lone eagle ray is often spotted here cruising in the currents.
  • Cauldron
    The channel between GiliLawaLaut and GiliLawaDarat forms a dive site with interesting topography. The dive starts with a drift along a sloping reef and sandy bottom. Corals head shelter crocodile fish and lionfish hunting in the small schools of glassfish. Pygmies and frogfish have been seen here as well as eagle rays and reef sharks. The dive site then shallows out with the ‘bull ring’ circle opening out and ending in a flat rock plateau. There is also a chance to see manta rays playing on the surface.
  • Castle Rock
    Castle Rock is a submerged pinnacle situated a kilometer further north from Crystal Rock. Its exposed location means strong currents, but experienced divers will love the thrills to be had on this dive. The main action comes from watching the staggering amount of fish such as batfish, groupers, midnight snappers, and impressive schools of fusiliers and surgeons whipping past. Of course, divers aren’t the only ones interested in the vast amount of fish here, which explains the giant trevallies as well as whitetips, blacktips, and grey reef sharks hunting around for their next meal.

Day 6 – 7: Komodo

  • Batu Bolong
    Underwater this rock is covered in a vast amount of soft and hard corals and full of fish life. In the shallows, watch anemonefishes and look out for turtles munching on the corals. Giant trevallies, white tip reef sharks, snappers, and emperor fishes tend to congregate here. This site presents outstanding opportunities for both macro and wide-angle photography. Batu Bolong has one of the best shallow reefs for snorkeling.
  • Makassar Reef (Manta Point)
    This exhilarating drift dive along the shallow flat bottom interspersed with patches of coral reef teeming with life. There are chances to see manta rays, turtles, eagle rays, and white tip and blacktip reef sharks. Also, appreciate the snorkeling. We spend the night in this area.
  • Tatawa Besar
    This is a thrilling drift dive that starts from the northwestern tip of Tatawa and continues down the western side towards 15 to 20 meters of depth. The surrounding fish life is profuse, and you will see an endless field of stunning orange soft corals as you glide along. Swim past coral heads inhabited by schools of sweetlips and batfish and look out for turtles feeding on the reef. Mantas have been encountered here as well.
    The boat will head toward Siaba Besar overnight there.

Day 8 – 9: Komodo.

  • Siaba Besar
    The beautiful coral garden lies along the western coast of the island, as in any other spot with running waters, large schools of the pelagic hunt here around. Blacktip sharks, barracudas, snappers, trevally, wrasses, and turtles are usually spotted here. It is also called a turtle city since many of them are posing and swimming around for the snorkelers’ love.
  • Pulau Pengah
    This dive site is located in the middle of the Komodo National Park, 12 nautical miles to the north and 12 nautical miles to the south. The translation of Batu = Rock, Tengah = Middle. With a slope to the east of the site and a coral garden to the west, BatuTangah is a beautiful site where we often get to see turtles, cuttlefish, and juvenile white tip reef sharks hide under the table corals among the hard coral garden. Napoleon’s wrasses and big groups of snapper swimming on the slope with all the colorful decoration of the soft coral make Batu Tengah a high-quality dive site.
  • Wainilu Sunset dive or Afternoon dive
    This sunset dive is situated off the north of Rinca Island. The hard coral reef is home to many different critters in the shallows, including juvenile harlequin sweetlips and batfish. Away from the reef, the sandy slope is scattered with pulsing soft corals that hide demon stingers and starry night octopus, plus a moray eel that has not yet been classified by scientists is only found here in Wainilo. We dive at 17.30 for the Mandarin Fisch, and we spend the night at the anchor position.
    If Wainilu has done an afternoon dive, we will move toward Kalong.
    Kalong Island
    As the last night, we will offer you the fantastic scenery of the flying foxes food catch. This natural emotional, and the incredible show will impress your eyes and leave you with a memorable cruise end.

Day 10: Komodo
