Raja Ampat or literally meaning “The Four Kings” is an archipelago comprising over 1,500 small islands, cays and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati and Misool.

The name Raja Ampat itself is believed to derive from a legend where a woman found seven eggs, with four of them hatch and become the kings of the four main islands. While the other three became a woman, a ghost and a stone. With all its spectacular wonders, this is the place where words such as enchanting and magical get its true meaning. Discover and dive around Fam Islands, it is well-known for being a great place to spot the tasselled Wobbegong shark. This shark is seen rarely outside of Australia and New Guinea. Explore the beautiful island of Batanta made up of countless bays lined with untouched mangrove forests.
