Journey with us on board the beautiful Amira Liveaboard to the reefs of Misool in southern Raja Ampat. This 12 night snorkeling safari has been created exclusively for snorkelers – meaning no pesky divers on board. The real beauty of snorkeling in Raja Ampat via liveaboard is that we’ll have the freedom to travel where we choose, and you can be sure that we’ll be heading to the remote regions of the Raja Ampat archipelago to snorkel over secluded reefs packed with marine life. Raja Ampat is a massive area and really the only way to see the whole area – from north’s Dampier Straight to Misool in the south- is by liveaboard. We have chosen this to explore it via an iconic wooden sailing yacht built in the local Indonesian style known as a phinisi liveaboard.
The area we will explore can have some strong currents, which bring in the nutrient rich water that helps keep the reef alive and healthy. Our local guides know the area very well and will select 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. One needs to be comfortable in the water with some upper body strength to climb back up the ladder onto the boat.
This snorkeling safari is escorted by a Snorkel Venture team member.
