Paradise!!

No words.. You have to see it yourself to experience it.. Loads of nature, ocean life, birds. One week stay is too short!

I was on a recent trip on Waow 5 Star liveaboard. The boat is made to a very high standerd very comfortable. The boat itself is 5 star I cannot say anything concerning that. The staff on the other hand are not of a 5 star quality. They sell their Waow boat as a 5 star service. The local staff... More

Spent 10 days on the Blue Manta liveaboard from Sorong to Ambon. Diving was fantastic, highlight was mantas at the Magic Mountain dive site South Misool but all dives were great, always something interesting to see. Highly recommend the Blue Manta, first class service throughout, very much a high end liveaboard. Cedric is a class act but the whole crew... More

Raja Ampat is a bucket list dive trip, not easy to get to but well worth the trip. We dove on the Blue Manta live aboard which was an awesome platform for exploring the beautiful corals and abundant large pelagic wild life

We stayed on The Raja Ampat Islands many times. Our last stay was at The Paradise Eco Diving Resort this February 2017. This time we invited our children , because we wanted them to witness the most beautiful place on earth. Up and under the surface of the see. It is difficult to explain with words what you see. It...
