Raja Ampat is renowned to be the cradle of the underwater life ; in 2001, a marine scientist assessment showed that the diversity of life is one of the greatest of the world, even in the Coral Triangle formed by Philippines, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea.

With more than 1,000 species of fish, more than 500 species of coral and more than 700 species of mollusc, the dive sites of Rajah Ampat will surprise and fire you with enthousiasm. In 2006, new species were still discovered.

 

The Raja Ampat are still preserved and the divers and operators are few which makes this place even more special.
