I will be traveling to Raja Ampat via a liveaboard and arriving at sorong pier on Friday October 31. There is a small group of four of us that are going out to Palua Mansuar and staying at the Raja Ampat Dive Lodge for the week. All are very experienced divers and great photographers. There is room for four more people if anyone wants to join us for the week. Price is about $2400 for the week with all meals and diving, and round trip boat transfers from Sorong (SOQ). On Nov 7 I am heading over to another island in northern Raja Ampat and staying until Sunday November 16. There is room for a few more people if anyone wants to come along. If interested in either or both parts of this trip send me a note and I can get you more details.

Hi Angelique,

Having a great time diving in Lembeh this week.
Where in Raja will you be working?
I know there is room at Raja Ampat Dive Lodge but the problem is getting from Sorong to the resort on Palua Mansuar island. They run their normal transfes on Fridays and private transfer are very expensive, around $600-$700 US. There is a public ferry to Waigeo that is only about $14 each way and then it may be possible to be picked up there. Send me your travel info directly to and I can see if there is a good option for you.
Right now it is four divers/photographers and I have two additional airline pilots that are also trying to confirm the days off to join us.
