The Raja Ampat Archipelago
Sail through one of the most mystical and mesmerizing regions in Indonesia, the Raja Ampat Archipelago, an astonishing collection of 600 islands. These isles remain largely untouched by the modern world and feature vibrant jungles, satiny white beaches, blue waters with almost endless visibility, and a rich tapestry of Indonesian culture. Climb aboard your boutique ship in Sorong and sail to Kri Island where you can start your vacation off right with a snorkel atop the rainbow of coral reefs and gentle stroll along the immaculate beach.
Become one with the jungle during a hike on Gam Island, home to the famous Red Bird-of-paradise, before sailing to the Wayag Islands and exploring caves, lagoons, and narrow inlets. Mix with the locals in Deer, located on Kofiau Island, and exotic wildlife in Boo Kecil lagoon, then indulge in the gorgeous landscapes of forests and rolling hills on Misool. Take advantage of your relaxing transportation as you cruise by the alluring shores of the Farondi Islands, then say yes to more snorkeling and beach-chilling on the Kalig and Fiabacet Islands. Finish your trip with the colorful marine life on Kepulauan Penyu, and friendly locals on Markhesa Bay.
