Episode 1 - Raja Ampat 

Raja Ampat is a true epicenter of marine biodiversity, featuring a stunning array of fish species, from diminutive glass fish to large bigeye jacks, swimming amidst its vibrant reefs. The reefs themselves boast an impressive variety of both hard and soft corals. Beyond its underwater marvels, Raja Ampat's scenic islands offer a picturesque topside view, with ample activities for non-divers, including bird-watching and excursions to Jellyfish Lake. Divers should be aware that visibility underwater might not be as good as in some destinations like the Caribbean. Yet, the overall health and richness of the marine environment continually attracts seasoned divers, who find themselves drawn back to Raja Ampat's unique diving experiences time after time. Highlights include a large variety of corals and fish life, lots of wobbegong sharks, Jellyfish Lake, and night dives with lots of critters.

Bluewater's 50 Amazing Adventures wouldn't be complete without a trip to the Maldives, and you can see why this honeymoon hotspot is also a renowned diving destination.

This idyllic location can be dived from land-based resorts and liveaboards, so we enjoyed a perfect combination of both.
