The boat will only wait for delayed flights with scheduled arriving time in Sorong at latest 09:30 am and will only wait until 12:00 pm (noon).

Dive Overview

Full of rich sea life from macro-life to huge schools of fish, you can expect to dive a variety of sites including colorful soft corals, expansive hard coral gardens, massive gorgonian sea fans, a manta cleaning station, swim throughs, seamounts, drift dives, placid lagoons and more.

Dedicated diving insurance such as DIVERS ALERT NETWORK (or similar), which covers emergency evacuation, is mandatory, since Raja Ampat is extremely remote. Conservative diving and safe practices are strongly encouraged, dive computers are mandatory and the focus is strictly on non-decompression diving, with slow controlled ascents. An SMB (surface marker buoy) is mandatory, and will be issued - if required - to all divers for the duration of their trip.

Raja Ampat Dive Overview

The Raja Ampat is deemed a species factory for marine life, with scientists proclaiming the bountiful reefs the baseline against which all reefs on Earth should be measured. These are the world's richest reefs, home to 75% of all known coral species, 1459 species of reef fish and counting. Continuously discovering new species, including sharks, shrimp and reef-building coral, scientists confirm this region as the Earth's richest seascape. Conservation is active in Marine Protected Areas throughout the Raja Ampat, and in addition, the area around Pulau Pef specifically is also protected by a no-take zone.

 

Diving with Raja4Divers

Raja Ampat offers year-round good conditions for diving and snorkeling in the area of Raja4Divers. Water temperature is a constant 28°- 30°C / 82°-86°F and underwater visibility varies between 15 and 30m / 50 and 100ft. There are no fuel surcharges for dive trips at Raja4Divers. Depending on the plan, surface intervals are often spent on one of Raja Ampat's beautiful beaches, sand-bars, exploring mangroves or the landscape of remote islands.

 

Pef House Reef

The house reef of Pulau Pef offers good diving and snorkeling opportunities, with a great variety of fish and critters. Night dives are convenient, colorful and productive, with the endemic Raja Ampat walking shark often sighted. At times a school of bat-fish reside under the pier making for good photographic opportunities, while the sun rays stream between the poles. A snorkel along the reef reveals colorful coral gardens and whatever you happen to encounter - the possibilities are endless: clown fish in anemones, schools of bump head parrotfishes, napoleon fishes, every shape and size of reef fish, octopus, cuttlefish, resting wobbegong sharks, nudibranchs, stingrays, eagle rays... At dusk, just underneath the jetty, underwater photographers can try their hand at capturing an image of the shy by beautiful mandarin fish, which only makes it appearance fleetingly as the light fades into night, sometimes even exhibiting a very brief mating display; and as dusk turns into night, the reef comes alive as the night critters become active.

Dive Center Information

Raja4Divers Raja4Divers

 

Raja4Divers Dive Center Overview

The dive centre is managed by a professional PADI instructor, backed by valuable local knowledge and experienced dive guides. While the dive centre is located in the main building at the beginning of the jetty, the wet and dry storage areas are conveniently located at the end of the jetty where dive briefings are held and from where we board the boats or dive on the house reef.

 

Dive Center Features

An air-conditioned camera room equipped with a 27” iMac is available for camera set-up and storage.

Equipped with a Bauer Mariner 320-E and a Bauer M250B compressor, as well as a Nitrox membrane system, Raja4Divers offers unlimited diving - up to three guided boat dives daily plus a night dive and unlimited diving at the house reef. The use of Nitrox 32 is encouraged and offered free of charge to certified Enriched Air Divers. In order to become Nitrox certified, ask about completing the PADI Enriched Air Specialty course during your trip. Other courses only on request.

In order to maximise comfort and convenience it is highly recommended to bring your own soft-gear: wetsuit, mask, snorkel, fins and booties. Limited rental gear is available: BCD, regulator, dive computer, and dive torch. However, be sure to book items at least 60 days in advance to avoid disappointment.

The three dive boats are equipped with built-in sun protection, and are powered by twin Yamaha 50hp 4-stroke outboard engines, which makes them fast, quiet and fuel-efficient. They have been especially custom-fitted for maximum comfort with a ratio of one dive guide to four divers and a maximum of eight divers per boat. Each dive boat is equipped with standard safety equipment on all trips - first aid kit, emergency oxygen, tools, compass and anchor, as well as dedicated padded camera crate, drinking water and towels.
