Offering budget-friendly trips to explore the wonders of the Banda Sea and Raja Ampat, the M/V Raja Ampat provides guests with great value for money and ample opportunities to dive. Measuring 33.5m in length, the vessel welcomes up to 14 guests on board across its 7 double or twin configuration cabins. Each cabin is air-conditioned with en-suite bathroom facilities. When not diving, guests can enjoy the indoor lounge and dining area or the partially-shaded sun deck where the views are simply magnificent. Meals are included in the itinerary price and guests are treated to a buffet of mixed dishes featuring both European and International favourites.
Raja Ampat is renowned for its fantastic underwater diversity and guests will make the most of their trip by diving as many as 3 times a day. Cruises are 7 nights or 10 nights in length and can follow the Raja Ampat route or the alternative Banda Sea route. The Raja Ampat route begins and ends at Sorong and visits Fam, Misool, Mansuar and Arborek along the way. For those that opt for the Banda Sea route, this begins and ends in Ambon and offers guests the chance to see critters in Ambon, elusive hammerheads around the Banda area and sea snakes around Gunung Api. Diving operations are conducted from the dive platform where there are stations for kitting up and underwater camera charging, compressors for refilling tanks, freshwater showers and 2 dive tenders that make pick up and drop off at each dive site an easy affair.
