Dive into Raja Ampat Dive Quick Pitch 

Dive into Raja Ampat is a dive operation located at Waiwo Dive Resort at Waisai.  It's set within a jungle-style resort on a beautiful white sand beach. The resort has done its best not to destroy the local fauna and vegetation during the building phase. This creates a very special ambiance as there is a lot of wildlife in the trees such as birds of paradise and the very docile Indonesian cuscus bears. The jungle canopy also helps keep the resort nice and cool.

Dive into Raja Ampat has recently finished a rebuild/upgrade of the diving center. A new camera room with individual charging/work stations and dedicated camera rinse tanks. Guests also have a secure locker room for their dive gear storage.

Dive Overview

Raja Ampat has one of the highest numbers of fish species of any place on the planet, making it one of the top 5 underwater photography destinations. This area also host some of the world's most beautiful coral reefs. Wobbegong sharks and reef sharks are commonly seen, especially once you learn where to look for the Wobbegongs. The rare walking shark is also found on certain night dives. The endemic Raja Ampat Epaulette Shark (walking shark) is also found on certain night dives. This small, harmless carpet shark only comes out at night. While appearing to walk on the ocean floor with its fins, it can actually move surprisingly fast

Jacks, barracuda, Napoleon wrasse, trevally, and bumphead parrotfish are seen on many dives. Pygmy seahorses are found at most dive sites, along with a good variety of nudibranchs. Macro diving at the piers is excellent. You will also see lots of juvenile fish such as batfish, angelfish, butterflyfish, barramundi cod, parrotfish, etc. 

Waiwo Dive Resort has 32 top dive sites all within a 60-minute boat ride of the resort. There are some special 2-tank dive trips available to further away places but there is a minimum of 4 divers needed and a small surcharge.
