Down here in the Wild West of Papua, we can still have a glimpse back in time, to what it was like to dive in Indonesia 25 years ago. Not uncommon here to bump into some great whales, as we just did, mother with a calve!
This is my fifth voyage on the Seven Seas and I’ve never adjusted to just how fast time flies when you’re out and exploring with Indonesia’s best liveaboard crew.
For anyone visiting Raja Ampat for the first time with a drone – you’ll find the views just as stunning high above the reef as they are below the surface of the sea. However, in some areas you might find an unexpected avian predator – the White-bellied sea eagle.
It all started with the contest Our World Underwater 2019 where I got the message that my photo “Mating Frogs” was named BEST OF SHOW and winner of 2 weeks Raja Ampat on the Seven Seas – a dream became reality.
What a great start to our new season in Raja Ampat! We’re all looking forward to a series of great cruises here in the next couple of months, before carrying on to Triton Bay later on.
We will be offering a few trips per year, in different parts of Indonesia, specifically geared to snorkeling, perhaps with diving on the side. Perhaps also offering an introduction to diving onboard for snorkelers who would like to progress to diving should there be interest to do so.
