Marine Conservation in Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful island chains in the world. With jungle-covered peaks, powder-white beaches and azure waters, these islands are a true taste of paradise.

When to go: October – April

Visit the spectacular white sand beaches of Kawe Island and snorkel above kaleidoscopic coral, encountering an abundance of vibrant marine life. Join Pelorus guides from the Manta Trust and learn how to identify individual Manta Rays, assisting in a worldwide conservation and research project that aims to prevent the loss of manta ray populations by monitoring the factors that affect migration and diving behaviours.

- Journey to the jewel of Raja Ampat, the Wayag Archipelago. Lead by an expert Pelorus guide, climb one of the many island peaks to be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the surrounding landscapes. Take time to appreciate the incredibly rich marine life with guided snorkelling trips and paddle boarding adventures, alongside the opportunity to join local conservation rangers and feed Blacktip Reef Sharks.

- Explore the spectacular Tomolol Bay in Misool Island, a maze-like paradise which bristles with hundreds of small Karst formations. Here, Pelorus has gained special access from the local village leader to explore the mystical Thousand Temple Islands. Visit previously unexplored sacred temple and wondrous landscapes that few have seen before.

- In Namatota, a truly authentic experience awaits you. Visit the charming village of “Maimai”, where you will ask the chief for his permission to swim with the whale sharks. Here you will have a rare opportunity to encounter these majestic animals in their natural habitat. As you swim, keep a keen eye out for sperm whales too, as they are often spotted in this area.
