Raja Ampat Liveaboard – With hundreds of islands off the West Papuan coast, Raja Ampat – the Coral Triangle boasts the highest marine biodiversity in the world and should be on every diver’s bucket list!

The underwater realm is a magical wonderland with healthy reefs bustling with colorful fish fleeing from hunting predators.

Due to its vast size, Raja Ampat is best explored by liveaboard. Our local Fleet consists of two budget-friendly, comfortable boats. Epica’s permanent home is in Raja Ampat, where she cruises among the Four Kings all year-round. The Jaya is more migratory in nature and moves seasonally between Komodo and Raja Ampat.

Scuba Republic’s professional crew has years of experience in handling Liveaboards and is intimately familiar with the region and its quirks. During the liveaboard trip, safety is always a priority when choosing dive sites and dive profiles. Before every dive, currents and conditions are checked to make sure the site is suitable for all divers. A comprehensive briefing on topography, currents and possible marine life encounters precedes all water activities.

As much as we enjoy crowded dive sites, we prefer the fishy variation. We try to avoid the rush hours and limit our dive groups to 4 guests per guide. Our Raja Ampat liveaboard hosts a maximum of 14 guests.

Every staff member on our liveaboard is passionate about marine life and our environment. We are conscious of the impact we have on it and do our best to keep it to a minimum. Scuba Republic runs our boats as eco-friendly as reality and budget allow and serve fresh, locally produced food within the limits of availability.

We are looking forward to taking you on an epic journey through the realm of the Four Kings!
