Few words about safety and medical

We can never be too careful when it comes to the safety of our guests. And because of our guests well being is our number 1 priority we advice you to read our policies concerning medical issues carefully. Raja Ampat is still very remote especially the areas we cover on our trips and so the medical facilities are limited. Just to give a rough idea evacuation may take 12-24 hours to the nearest major hospital in good conditions. We will need any and all medical questions and concerns addressed and cleared before your arrival. Our staff or the local doctors are not qualified to decide whether an individual is fit to dive. In some cases we ask guests to provide medical proof. (If so happens that you’re already in Indonesia we can recommend facilities in Bali)

A full travel insurance that covers possible evacuations AND diving accidents, is required for all our guests. However we do recommend to include cover for any cancellations e.g. flights as Indonesian airlines are known for changing or even cancelling their flights rather frequently. In case where you cannot show proof of travel insurance at the time of check-in you will be given opportunity to purchase one. Without insurance, or the proof of it, we will not permit you to part on the trip. We do not issue any refund for lack of insurance.

Getting ready for the adventure

Our liveaboard trips are suitable for all levels from beginners to advanced but we do require all our guests to have recent diving experience before joining aboard (less than one year since last dive) and if time has passed without you noticing we kindly ask to get a “scuba tune-up” or a refresher. It makes the trip so much more fun and also shows that you’re taking your fellow divers in to consideration. If it’s been a while since your last dive, want to do a course or just want to do more diving before or after the trip we recommend you to check out our Scuba Republic Beach Bungalow in Raja Ampat.
