Last time I traveled to Wayag by liveaboard boat operated by Deni, the boat departs from Sorong. You can find him in facebook named deni rajaampat to check the trip avaliability
Hi Brian - Firstly, the only way to all the Raja Ampat islands is by sea - there is no land or air route. The way we went was with a local tour operator in a smallish yacht - 18 passengers. The tour operators pay the park fees and also interact with the local people, who maintain the facilities in a rough sort of way.
If you had your own yacht in theory you could sail there yourself, but really you are supposed to pay the park fees and pay something to the locals as well.
Much easier to use an Indonesian operator. You don't have to go to West Papua to find one, this was organized in Java through a travel agent who hired the yacht operator. Relative to a similar chartered tour in Australia it seems cheap but it's still pretty expensive.
Possibly you can book it through a tour operator in Australia, I don't know. This trip was organized by our contacts in Indonesia.
