Tailor-Made Tour
Snorkelling and Diving

Since it is designed to bring together the best Indonesian coral reef locations in one itinerary, keen divers should love this tour – and it’s equally as attractive to avid snorkellers. Because Indonesia has such a wealth of marine sites, it is a long tour but could be shortened by omitting one of the locations or shortening your stay at Misool. Near to the various reef spots are plentiful terrestrial delights to discover too, such as myriad pristine beaches, sinister Komodo dragons and the charming crested macaques of Tangkoko National Park in northern Sulawesi. Enjoy the best of Indonesia’s submarine world and, when on the surface, indulge in plenty of captivating terrestrial activities too.

Crossing both climate zones, this itinerary can be visited at any time of the year.  April to October will be driest for Angel Island and Gangga whereas November to March would be the best time for Misool. The very best months are September, October and November which fall between the two rainy seasons. There are big shoals of bait fish at Misool at this time of year plus some of the best visibility.  Avoid July and August when the weather is roughest in Raja Ampat and Misool often closes for maintenance.
