Join Jupiter Dive Center on a trip to Indonesia October 28 through November 14, 2018 and scuba dive in Raja Ampat. Nestled in the coral triangle between Papua New Guinea, Timor, and the Philippines, this Indonesian archipelago dots what is arguably the most biodiverse marine ecosystem in the world.
The crystal-clear waters that surround Raja Ampat Islands are home to many marine species found nowhere else. Imagine coming face-to-face with an electric-blue giti damselfish, photographing a jamal dottyback, or spying a colorful cuttlefish. Don’t forget about the pygmy seahorses—they like to hide in the gorgonian corals. Looking for something bigger? Watch for the manta rays and wobbegong sharks. The adventure doesn’t stop when the sun sets, either. At dusk, divers are treated to the enchanting courtship ritual of the Mandarinfishes. Finish with a night dive and meet a whole new cast of colorful characters.
The Gangga Island Resort
The adventure begins at the Gangga Island Resort in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. Surrounded by lush tropical trees, the resort sits on the edge of a white sand beach. After diving with Gangga Divers, a 5-star PADI Dive Center, take a dip in the large salt-water infinity pool or relax in the traditional spa. Two open-air restaurants serve regional cuisine. Finish your evening with a cocktail in the full bar. After all, the time you spend topside should be every bit as amazing as your time underwater.
The Gaia Love
The second leg of the trip transports us to sea, where we’ll spend 8 nights on the luxury live-aboard dive boat Gaia Love. The boat accommodates 22 guests (11 air-conditioned en-suite rooms) and sports four decks that house a lounge, restaurant, and dedicated camera room. The spacious dive deck makes entering the water a snap.
