Raja Ampat is an unparalleled underwater realm in the heart of the Coral Triangle. Called an epicenter of marine biodiversity, it holds the world record for most species of fish recorded in a single dive, with an astonishing 284 (roughly one new species every five seconds)! This incredible biodiversity means you’ll not only see a kaleidoscope of color and critters but also have the opportunity to come face to face with some of the most exciting animals in the ocean, including manta rays, whales, dolphins, sharks, and turtles.

What Makes our Raja Ampat Journey So Special?

Nearly 20 Years of Experience in Raja Ampat – We pioneered small-group journeys in this remote region and have always remained focused on snorkeling (rather than SCUBA). This has made us the experts at finding the best shallow reefs and adept at adjusting our daily schedule for changes in weather, tides, and currents.

Groups Limited to 10 Travelers – You’ll have an intimate and personalized experience both above and below water. There are always two or three guides in the water, giving you a chance to ask questions and snorkel at your own pace.

Cruise in a Traditional Indonesian Schooner – Our sailing ship adds a great amount of charm to your experience. She is small enough to navigate into remote bays but still provides all the comforts needed—including air conditioning, en suite bathrooms, cold drinks, and space on deck to relax.

Expert Naturalist Trip Leaders – Our Trip Leaders have been living and working in Indonesia for decades. They give fascinating presentations on the biodiversity of the region and help you find small and camouflaged creatures while in the water. Their passion for this remote world is infectious!

Commitment to Conservation – WT offsets all carbon emissions for your trip and donates a portion of the trip proceeds to Bye Bye Plastic Bags, an Indonesian NGO dedicated to eliminating single use plastics.

This was a great snorkeling experience. We got to see 22 different reefs—lots of variety—and didn't see any other boats for 8 days—truly amazing.
Paula S., Sedro Woolley, WA
There are not enough words to describe the trip. It was just amazing and I loved every minute. Lots of laughter and fun out of the water and the snorkeling was beyond what I expected. I would love to go back.
Tanis D., Noosaville, Australia
This is the ultimate snorkel trip—the fauna are in perfect balance so you see a large number of incredibly rare species. This isn’t a vacation, it’s a privilege.
David S., East Peoria, IL
I was awestruck by the beauty I saw. I felt for the first time in my life that I had been honored to see the world as it was in its beginning. Certainly a life-changing experience.
Betty-Lynn W., Westport, CT
This was an amazing trip, absolutely the best 12 days I’ve ever experienced.
Karen R., Santa Fe, NM
This is the third time I’ve been to Raja Ampat/Misool with WT and I hope to go again. It’s a snorkeler’s paradise, made even better by Trip Leader and the boat staff.
