Raja Ampat CNY 2012

Date: 21 January - 1 February 2012
Duration: 12 days


We will be diving Raja Ampat once again, and this time it will be during the best window to dive South Raja Ampat ie Misool!

We will be taking advantage of the Chinese New Year holidays for 12 day/11 night trip to cover the highlights of Raja Ampat South and North. The usual 3 - 4 dives a day will be offered. During this trip, we will have a chance to wake up early to go and watch the Bird of Paradise do its mating dance in the morning.
