    A taste of Raja Ampat Raja Ampat: Four Kingdoms of the East, Indonesia in February

    There were many highlights. The amazing corals, prolific fish life and the varied dives. Certainly the mantas were a highlight but there were so many other animals big and small that made up the Raja Ampat experience.The Tambora was a great boat to explore the area. Would I travel on Tambora again? Yes. Will I return to Raja Ampat? Most certainly.

    The best things were the food, diving and its organization and the staff.

    Brilliant trip out of Sorong Raja Ampat: Four Kingdoms of the East, Indonesia in December

    Really every dive was outstanding. I've done 5 liveaboards and have 400+ dives, but this was the best. Of course the amazing diving and weather certainly added to the experience. The crew did a great job and the food was the best of the boats I've been on. So good, I've already booked another trip on the Tambora.
