Best dive sites in Raja Ampat

Boo Rock / Boo Windows – One of Raja Ampat’s most iconic and most photographed dive sites, Boo Rock/Windows takes its name from the two swim-through holes in the rock. This dive site showcases the biodiversity of the Misool area with schooling fish, incredible corals and stunning underwater topography. Expect to see everything from the smallest of critters to passing pelagics. Cross Wreck – One of Raja Ampat’s most accessible wrecks is this Japanese navy patrol boat that sank close to the shore during WWII. The name, Cross Wreck, comes from a large cross on the shore nearby. The wreck lays upright and is now completely encrusted in coral and home to a plethora of marine life. Critters that have made this wreck their home include lionfish, moray eels, Napoleon wrasse, bumphead parrotfish, numerous nudibranch species and so much more. This site is a great introduction to wreck diving. Sardine Reef – This offshore reef is simply teeming with fish including huge schools of surgeonfish, jacks, batfish, fusiliers, rainbow runners, and trevally but surprisingly - no sardines! When you’re not looking at the tightly packed schools this is a great site for macro life including nudibranch, mantis shrimps, pygmy seahorses, octopus and cuttlefish but if that’s not enough, look out for the resting wobbegong sharks under the table corals. Cape Kri – With 374 species of fish being counted in one single dive, this dive site is an actual record breaker! The stunning reef top is a kaleidoscope of colors and healthy, vibrant soft and hard corals create a beautiful garden. Black and white tip sharks pass through, reef fish swarm around and turtles lazily cruise by. If you venture deeper you’ll find schools of sweetlips beside bommies which are literally shrouded in glass fish. This site is one of Raja Ampat's most famous and never fails to impress even the most seasoned divers. Magic Mountain – Located in the southern Misool region of Raja Ampat, this impressive seamount and extending ridge is swarming with fish. It’s also a good site for spotting manta rays which come to a cleaning station here. On a good day you’ll see numerous manta rays, Napoleon wrasse, schools of snappers, jacks, trevallies, Spanish mackerel, barracuda and reef sharks all joining in on the action. Raja Ampat is a huge area and home to innumerable dive sites, which offer diverse topographies and marine life. Other notable sites in Raja Ampat include Blue Magic, Melissa’s Garden, Mansuar, Mike’s Point, The Passage, Fiabacet and Mioskon Island.

How to get there

Arrival

  • The transfer to the resort gives you the chance to see the best of Indonesia's amazing Raja Ampat.
  • Transfer is via private speed boat. You will depart from Sorong at about 9am, arriving at Misool Resort 4-5 hours later. Transfers depart on scheduled days only. You will need to pay extra for arrival or departure outside of these dates. 
  • The first leg of the journey leads you out of the busy Sorong harbour and through a mangrove-lined strait with unbroken swathes of jungle on either side. As you approach the mouth of the strait, you'll see some traditional Papuan villages along the banks.
  • The sea slowly shifts from brown to green and finally to vibrant blue during the second part of the trip. You'll be crossing open water, and will likely see massive schools of bonito tuna feeding at the surface. Whale sightings are not unheard of.
  • The last leg of the journey brings you through the breathtaking scenery particular to southern Raja Ampat and the Misool area. There are myriad tiny karst islets and lagoons. We are often escorted by pods of playful dolphins.
  • It is reccomended that you arrive in Sorong either on Garuda Indonesia from Jakarta, both of which arrive early morning in Sorong. If you wish to arrive on a different flight, we suggest you arrive one day early in Sorong. 

Departure

  • Unless you are combining your stay with a local live-aboard, one night off-gassing in Sorong after your stay at Misool Resort will be necessary. Your hotel night in Sorong after your 7, 9, or 12 night stay is included in the package price. Misool will arrange your room as well as breakfast, baggage services and transfers to Sorong's airport in time for your flight the following morning.
