The coral reef environment in Raja Ampat islands have been considered as the richest in the world for its marine bio-diversity. As a tour guide, I offer snorkeling tour for visitor who is interested in seeing various species of fish and marine creatures of the archipelago. The cheapest way to experience snorkeling in the area is by staying at one of the many simple guesthouses - also called homestays that are run by local people. These guesthouses are not luxurious but quite comfortable for visitors who like adventure and want to spend a few days to one full week or even more of their holiday time in the islands.

I organize snorkeling tours to visitors who come in a group of 4 to 8 tourists. I can also accompany solo traveling tourist as snorkeling buddy in for multiple days of staying in Raja Ampat to see the beauty of tropical fish such as the Moorish Idol, Butterflyfish, Striped Surgeonfish, Anemonefish, Damselfish, Grouper and etc.

Day 1
Arrive in Sorong, I will met you in Sorong and transfer you by car to Pelabuhan Rakyat harbor. We will cross the sea by a fast ferry boat to Waisai town and then by small boat to a homestay that is located by the beach. We will say at a homestay in the southwest of Waigeo island. Take a rest. Before sunset time, we enjoy swimming and snorkeling to see numerous species of tropical fish such as anemonefish, surgeonfish, wrass, parrotfish, lionfish, snapper, grouper and etc. Please, bring a good underwater camera if you want to take pictures of them.
Day 2
We will wake up early in the morning to go hiking up a hill to the birding site of Red Bird of Paradise (Paradisaea rubra). We can enjoy birding until 09.00. After we will continue our walk to the edge of a hill where we will be able to see beautiful scenery of the island. Back to the guesthouse, snorkeling.
