This December, Aqua Blu returns to the incredible waters of Raja Ampat – known to have the highest levels of marine biodiversity on the planet. Located at the center of a major migration route for whales and dolphins, this is the perfect place to spot some of nature’s most awe-inspiring creations. Half of all known species of tropical marine fish can be found in this region, as well 75 percent of all reef-building corals.
Thanks to its proximity to the equator, Raja Ampat enjoys comfortably warm weather throughout the year. For snorkelers and divers, exploring the water is an enjoyable experience at all times of the day. The water visibility can extend beyond 30 feet, offering a pristine view of the underwater life which thrives here.
Aboard Aqua Blu, enjoy daily opportunities to discover marine hotspots including Cape Kri and Misokon. Manta rays, sea turtles, and hammerhead sharks are among a few of the species which inhabit this region. Revel in the iconic karst limestone formations of Wayag, and go trekking through Waigeo’s lush tropical rainforest – one of only two places in the world where it’s possible to spot the red bird-of-paradise. Waigeo Island also offers the chance to discover the hidden Kali Biru river and swim in its cerulean lagoon.
Aqua Blu’s 7-night Raja Ampat itinerary sails to over ten destinations across East Indonesia. With expert guides leading each excursion – both on land and in water – this is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the adventure of a lifetime. While onboard, make the most of luxuries including a jacuzzi, spa & exercise area, and a sky lounge bar.
