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 easiest and the affordable 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 comfortable enough for visitors who like adventure and want to spend a few days to one full week or more exploring the marine life of Raja Ampat.

I organize snorkeling tours for visitors who come in a group of 4 to 8 tourists. I can also accompany solo traveling tourist as snorkeling buddy for multiple days of staying in Raja Ampat islands. During the trip, visitor will be able to see the beauty of tropical fish such as the Moorish Idol, Butterflyfish, Striped Surgeonfish, Anemonefish, Three-spots Dascyllus, Box Fish, Lionfish, Wrasse and Parrotfish, Grouper and etc.
