Best of Raja Ampat

Returning to Raja Ampat after 7 years is very exiting for me. Definetely one of my top diving destinations worldwide. I decided to take Emperor Raja Laut for a decent price and small amount of divers.

The park covers a large area with approximately 170 nautical miles separating the northern and southern extremities.
