Hi all,

We have an opening for upcoming raja ampat trip  on 21-27 Dec 2018. It is very last minute because we have a diver just dropped out of the trip. Due to the trip starting in a few days, we further reduced the price.

The price is $1400 $1000 SGD, price excluding flights and gears and marine fee (1 million rupiah for foreginers, 500k rupiah for locals).

The boat is Blue Dragon (http://www.bluedragoncruises.com/)
This is a personal trip and we are just trying to help our friend get some of her money back, which is why it is very cheap.

We will also be going to some of the land sites for your IG collections  ;).

Only ONE slot available and it will be first come first serve basis.

DM to diver ratio is 1:4

The day-to-day trip is as follows:

Day 1 SORONG ARRIVAL-SOUTH RAJA AMPAT
On arrival Sorong Airport our crew will be waiting for you in the arrival hall, after collecting your luggage we will escort you to the harbour where our tender boats will take you out to the Blue Dragon and our friendly crew will greet you with a cold refreshing towel and drink. This will be followed by cabin allocation and boat orientation. When all guests are on board the Cruise Director will give you a presentation about the Blue Dragon and diving recommendations. Depending on departure time there may be an opportunity to have a check dive just outside Sorong Harbour. Lunch and dinner will be served during the sail out to South Raja Ampat (12hrs)

Day 2, 3 MISOL ISLANDS
One of the many fascinating diversities of Raja Ampat, with some of the most amazing land scapes imaginable, deep mangroves to ravines and canyons, the Misool Islands have been shaped by the powerful forces of nature, underwater the vibrant variety of colour of the hard corals / soft corals / fish species is wonderful. Diving at the Boo Windows, Nudi Rock, Goa Farundi and Magic Mountain (Reef Bayangan) are just some of the awesome sites you can see.

Day 4 MISOL-PENEMU ISLAND
More great examples of Raja Ampats diversity. The Penemu Islands very recently became an Marine Protected Area and we spend most of our time here in the M.P.A. Melissa's Garden has probably the best complete coral coverage you will ever see and no visit to these islands is complete without seeing the Hidden Bay

Day 5 PENEMU-ARBOREK
The morning dives are at Manta Sandy where we regularly see the Black / White and the all Black Manta Rays come to cleaned. This famous site now has a line of dead coral where guests line up and watch the show. Third dive is a beautiful coral / fish dive close to Arborek Island where guests can also have a sun set walk on the beach before the fourth / night dive at the village jetty

Day 6 ARBOREK-DAMPIER STRAIT
Finishing off your great trip with two shallow dives in the Dampier Strait which has some great action packed fish dives, like Cape Kri and Blue Magic. After your busy diving schedule has come to a sad end we will have a lazy afternoon on Pulau Pasir (Sand Island) before returning to Sorong

Day 7 DAMPIER-SORONG DEPARTURE
After breakfast the Cruise Director will escort the guests to either the airport / hotel and will assist with checking in. Sorry to say that your Sea Papua Raja Ampat trip has come to an end and we look forward to welcoming you on board again.

- The total number of dives can be reduced depend on the weather and the sea condition. Itinerary can also be changed depends on our arrival time.
