Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat Yacht Charter

A unique charter destination unlike any other, head off the beaten track and explore the exotic Raja Ampat Islands in Indonesia. Home to endless deserted islands simply teeming with incredible natural landscapes, this tropical destination ensures you will come face to face with Mother Nature in her finest. From volcanic craters, dense jungles and fine white sand beaches to crystal clear lakes and azure lagoons, a journey through Raja Ampat is the best way to truly immerse yourself in one of the most beautiful and wild terrains in the world. An archipelago consisting of 1,500 sparsely inhabited islands, this area is one of the most biologically diverse marine habitats and home to spectacular coral reef systems, making it a true playground for all divers.


Also known as the getaway to Raja Ampat, this is an ideal place to begin your journey through Raja Ampat. The largest city in West Papua, it is located on the western tip of New Guinea’s island and perfect for stocking up on essentials before you head off. Sample some delicious local dishes and explore its winding streets ahead of departing from Sorong Harbour. Cruise through the Damier Strait and take in the stunning green-turquoise waters, coral reefs and marine life – if you’re lucky, you may even see some migrating whales.


The biggest of the four main islands within the Raja Ampat archipelago, Waige offers many attractions, from birdwatching to jungle trekking and visiting ancient cultural sites. Known for its spectacular seascapes, stop by the Saporen village and learn more about the famous naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace’s quest to find the rare Red Bird of Paradise. Mayalibit Bay, which nearly splits the island in two, is also worth a visit, as the indigenous Maya communities that live around its shores have developed a unique network of trekking trails and hiking lodges to the wonderful jungles inland.

Boo Islands

A smaller chain of islands located in the most western part of Raja Ampat, be sure to stop by the beautiful Boo Islands. Take a dive and explore the stunning barrier reef. Then head ashore at Boo Besar island, one of the larger islands, to get up close and personal with the local wildlife living in the dense, green mangroves and lagoons. Stop by the small village built on stilts and see first-hand how people live on the islands.
