Feb 17th – 28th, 2023

Diving Raja Ampat is a lifechanging experience!  It is the best year-round diving destination in the Indian Ocean. Who doesn’t like to see Manta Rays, fish tornados, and sharks? Top it with some of the most beautiful, vibrant reefs in the world where you can find small colorful creatures hiding among the corals, like the Ghost Pipefish and tiny Flatworms and you won’t want to get out of the warm, clear water!

The meaning of ‘Raja Ampat’ is the ‘4 kings’. The area is located in the West Papua province of eastern Indonesia. The ‘4 kings’ are the islands of Misool, Batanta, Waigeo, and Salawati but the area is made out of hundreds of islands. Raja Ampat is quite remote and offers some of the best and most pristine sceneries above and under the water.

Join us on Feb 17th – 28th, 2023. on an EPIC 9-night UW photo trip aboard the Emperor Harmoni Liveaboard – the newest member of the Emperor fleet! The Emperor Harmoni only begins service in October 2021! The dates include also 1 night in Jakarta and 1 night on the plane.
