Raja Ampat Aggressor Liveaboard, disembarkation port: Sorong, Indonesia
Dive with us April 2024 as we adventure through the best dive sites of Dampier Strait, Fam, Mansuar and the awesome dive sites of Misool - the best diving area of Raja Ampat! Great highlights of our route include the manta cleaning station near Mansuar and the huge schools of fish near Farondi.
The Dampier Straight separates the Birdhead Peninsula from Waigeo and Mansuar. The name comes from Dutch colonial times. It refers to the shape of the peninsula on the map, but it is also a paradise for many rare bird species. Our route will take us to where the Pacific Ocean meets the Halmahera Sea, resulting in an explosion of marine life! With regular strong currents, big fish feel especially comfortable. Manta rays, reef sharks, different schools of mackerel, tuna and barracuda, dolphin and whales.
The night dives under the Arborek or Cape Mansuar jetty is a favorite spot with peculiar creatures such as wobbegongs, epaulette sharks (walking sharks), nudibranchs, pipefish, seahorses, frogfish, scorpion fish and so many more!
Misool is the southeast of the four big islands of the Raja Ampat archipelago. At the same time it is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world. In addition to a kleidescope, of reefs not to be overlooked are vertical walls, slopes, dry rocks, caves and lagoons; some covered with hard corals while the others are covered with brightly colored soft corals. Also renowned as the center of pygmy seahorses and gorgonians, everywhere you go you will be amazed by the profusion of marine life that Raja Ampat has to offer!
