Photos and videos of Raja Ampat were shot during our dive cruise in 2014.
Departing from Sorong in the eastern Indonesian province of West Papua we cruised with liveaboard "Paisubatu" and made 36 dives in 10 dive places, spending around 36 hours under water.
Our dive spots were mostly "Raja Dampier Strait", then "Kawe and Wayag", "Penemu" and at the end "Faroundi Misool".
Remarkable dive spots were "Manta Sandy", "Aljuy", "Black-Rock", "Karang Bayangan", "Andiamo"....
This area of preservation maintains a natural environment rich in wildlife but visibility is not always ok.
