Join us on this incredible snorkeling safari featuring two of Indonesia’s best destinations for big fish and beautiful reefs – Alor and Misool in Raja Ampat!
Alor will be the first stop on this beautiful journey. In this remote region of eastern Indonesia, we’ll be hosted by one of the only resorts in the area, Alami Alor. We charter the entire resort which will give us unfettered access to the resort and all that it offers, including its amazing house reef and all the snorkeling nearby. While Alor is still a bit of a secret to a lot of the world, we’ve become very fond of the snorkeling here as the shallow reefs remain in near pristine condition. Besides the vibrant coral reefs bursting with life, large cetaceans like blue whales and super pods of dolphins are not uncommon as we move between the sites.
Misool is the southernmost set of islands in Raja Ampat, and is truly a paradise brimming with pristine coral reefs and more exotic marine species than you possibly count in a single trip. Misool Resort is the only resort in this entire – largely uninhabited – area and yet the comfort and style of this resort is second to none. Because of the amazing conservation efforts taken on by the resort, the surrounding waters are densely populated with sharks, rays, and swarms of fish big and small.

Something that has become increasingly popular on our Alor trips is muck snorkeling. Alor has some world-class sites that are right next to the resort where in just a few minutes you can see anything from frogfish, seahorses, ghost pipefish, a whole array of scorpion fish, flying gurnards, and so much more!
If you are curious as to what I mean by muck snorkeling, check out this quick blog here. It has a less-than-appealing name, but everyone who’s thought they wouldn’t enjoy it ends up loving it!
Upon arrival at the resort, we will check in to our bungalows, have lunch and an orientation, and then a snorkel on the house reef before dinner.
Alami Alor Resort
Alami Alor is an intimate resort situated on a remote and quiet bay that combines luxury accommodation and delicious locally inspired food. Your bungalow sits on the waterfront. The bedroom is air-conditioned and has a private patio, and there is an open-air garden bathroom. There is plenty of outdoor seating in the main common area complete with sofas and sun loungers.
The resort features a central common area where we’ll enjoy all of our meals “family style.” This is also a great place to relax between snorkels with a book, edit your photos, or just look off into the bay as it’s quite common to see juvenile blacktip reef sharks hunting in the shallows and pods of dolphins a bit further out.
One of the world’s most remote snorkel resorts – Misool Resort – is neatly located on its own private island. The water cottages on the North side of the lagoon rise on stilts over a tranquil lagoon, shaded by limestone cliffs – each one with a set of steps that lead you into the water and the house reef which is just a few fin strokes away.
The restaurant is set back from a white sand beach and serves up a variety of western and Indonesian treats throughout the day, as well as afternoon tea.
Both resorts will make every effort to cater to special dietary requirements if prior notice is given. (Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free etc).
Alami Alor Resort: Spacious fiberglass speedboats with enough room to easily store snorkeling equipment. The boats do not have a toilet onboard but do offer a full canopy for sun protection and a ladder to help exit the water. Distances from the resort average ten to thirty minutes.
