The Raja Ampat archipelago has been described as the ‘Last Paradise on Earth.’ Marine biologists have established that Raja Ampat is the epicenter of marine biodiversity, boasting the most variety of corals and marine fishes on the planet. Yet, while the below-surface world is reminiscent of a living kaleidoscope, the above-surface views are amongst the most stunning that you are likely to behold in a lifetime. These gem-like islands of extreme limestone coastlines, virgin rainforest and pristine beaches are a paradise for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. During this ten-day cruise, we will take you on a far-reaching exploration of what is without a doubt one of the least visited but most memorable adventure-destinations on our planet. This trip will be geared towards an active and nature-loving crowd, and is packed with fun ways to explore this marine wonderland. Activities include trekking through the jungles to spot the Bird of Paradise, floating amongst a lake of stingless jellyfish, freediving courses, kayaking, hill climbing, paddle boarding, exploring limestone caves, kayaking through pristine lagoons, plunging into waterfalls and swimming with the currents in search of large marine life. Every day promises to be an unforgettable adventure, and nightly presentations on marine life, and local conservation efforts will surely enhance and enrich this unforgettable experience.
