To say that Raja Ampat is remote, at least as a traveler from the US, is a bit of an understatement. Even traveling from Jakarta as we were it takes about 12 hours including flight, a taxi transfer, a ferry, and a time change. I...More

First trip aboard Dewi Nusantara. Best liveaboard I've ever been on. I have been diving fifty years and been on dozens of liveaboards. Crew superb. Food exceptional. Diving in Raja Ampat was fantastic.

There are possibilities to go snorkeling in Raj Ampat but like another person said already you may not see manta rays while snorkeling as these manta rays are mostly swimming around cleaning stations and this is a bit deeper.

in Raja Ampat has no special ship, if you want to use a boat for snorkeling can use local speed boat services at low prices, or if you want vip services can use the services of meridian adventure
