Raja Ampat Adventure Tour

a village in Waigeo island
Raja Ampat islands are located in the western waters of West Papua. The archipelago has become the most recommended destination for visitors who want to see the wealth of marine and forest bio-diversity of the tropical environment.
As a tourist guide, I organize tours to the islands for visitors who want to enjoy snorkeling and free-diving over its pristine coral reef as well as birding and wildlife watching in its rainforest.
Snorkeling
Coral Reef in Raja Ampat
Raja Ampat has got the best coral reef with the highest marine biodiversity in the world. Visitors who go there can enjoy snorkeling and freediving to see turtles, parrotfish, butterflyfish, grouper and surgeonfish, anemonefish, parrotfish, wrass, lionfish, manta and wobbegong sharks.
Birdwatching
There are a lot of birds that live in the forest of Raja Ampat. Some of them that have attracted the attention of birdwatchers include Pink-spotted Fruit Dove, Sulphur Crested Cockatoo, Raja Shelduck, Island Kingfisher, Wilson Bird of Paradise (Cicinnurus respublica) and Red Bird of Paradise (Paradisaea rubra) and a lot more.
Village Tour
Tern
In addition to exploring the coral reef and the tropical rainforest, I also organize trips to some coastal villages where tourists could see how local people live in their daily life.
Empowerment of Local People
For the whole duration of the Adventure Tour in Raja Ampat, we will be fully served by villagers. We will stay at their houses, our food will be cooked by them. We will also explore the sea and the forest with them.
We cannot provide luxurious boat and hotels but we will do our best to serve our customers hoping that local people will get the economic benefits of ecotourism and at the same time preserve the rainforest and marine environment.
