Explore some of the richest and most diverse marine habitats on the planet with a stay at Misool Resort. Located on an idyllic island in the far fringes of Indonesia, Misool is a paradise brimming with pristine coral reefs and more exotic marine life than you could possibly count in a single trip. The resort is exceptionally comfortable given it’s remote location, and you can relax and snorkel in absolute peace.
Expect healthy colorful reef teaming with fish large and small, turtles, reef sharks, and a variety of smaller critters. We will also snorkel over manta cleaning stations looking for these gentle giants.
This is the pinnacle of marine life diversity within the Coral Triangle. At its most recent count in 2011 the region of Raja Ampat was recognized to contain 1427 reef fish species, over 600 coral species (75% of the world’s coral species can be found here), not to mention the pelagic life that is abundant in the area.
Because of the amazing conservation efforts by the resort, there ha been a huge surge in the marine life and you can witness it on the doorsteps of the resort with a juvenile black tip reef shark nursery which has naturally occurred.
While this area can have some strong currents, which bring in the nutrient rich water that helps keep the reef alive and healthy, our local guides will chose protected sites, or appropriate times to enter the water to avoid being in current. If we are ever in a current, we will always float with the water and not try to swim against it. For this tour you should be comfortable in the water with some upper body strength to climb back up the ladder onto the boat.
Marine Life Guide
One of the world’s most remote snorkel resorts – Misool Resort is neatly located on its own private island. The Water Cottages and villas 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
The villas on the south side of the lagoon are set on a sandy beach (and a couple nestled in the trees). At the end of a day’s snorkeling, you can kick back in a built-in hammock for sunset and stargazing.
Misool Resort Snorkel Boat
Spacious fiberglass speedboats with enough room to easily store snorkeling equipment. The boats do not have a toilet on board but do offer a full canopy for sun protection and a ladder to help exit the water. Distances from the resort average five to twenty-five minutes.
