Join Wendy and Richard on an unforgettable journey to the frontiers of the world’s most biodiverse coral reefs on the majestic Dewi Nusantara | 21st January to 1st February 2016.
Focusing on only the southern region of Raja Ampat provides the perfect opportunity to really explore this amazing and unique area. It allows us to visit areas that we wouldn’t ordinarily have time to see during a trip that also includes the northern islands. This 11 night southern itinerary will include a new perspective on Misool and it’s surrounds, starting off with the enchanting island of Batanta en route to Kofiau.
Kofiau is one of Raja Ampat’s least dived areas, but an absolute hidden gem. Raja Ampat’s highest species diversity count was from Kofiau and this diversity is well protected within a Marine Protected Area patrolled by The Nature Conservancy. Due to the dominance of oceanic currents, Kofiau can have excellent visibility but there is also fantatsic muck diving. The island is even home to endemic kingfishers, pythons and butterflies!
As always, Richard will be giving marine life lectures during the trip, so you can get more from your diving and underwater photography.
