Raja Ampat Sailing Trip
by The Luxury Voyage

Updated on 17 April 2021, Sorong

Raja Ampat is notorious for the Jurassic-like beauty of its cays and shoals embracing over 1,500 rambling islands set like rough jewels in a cerulean sea. Located off the northwest tip of the island of New Guinea, and part of the Indonesian West Papua Province, you can explore prehistoric caves, visit ancient tribes, kayak around virgin coastlines and discover dive sites famed for having the most species recorded on a single dive. The romance of this far-flung region is embodied by the history of its fairy-tale name which literally translates as ‘four kings’. Local mythology tells of a woman who finds seven mysterious eggs. Immediately after that, four of these hatch and become kings who reign over Raja Ampat’s biggest islands - Waigeo, Salawati, Batanta and Misool. The other three are not so lucky and become a ghost, a woman, and a stone. Trip Highlight: Eight-days liveaboard experience, cruising to Raja Ampat & Wayag archipelago by the luxury phinisi vessel Breathtaking views at every turn, find pristine beaches and the iconic karst islands scattered beautifully across the crystal blue ocean. Witness to catch a rare Red Bird of Paradise and snorkel the most diverse living library for world's coral reef and underwater biota. Up-close and personal with the isolated island local peoples.
