Day 2: Raja Ampat
Hike to the Batanta waterfalls and snorkeling excursion to Sawandarek

Batanta Island is one of the four largest islands in the archipelago. Its waterfalls are a natural paradise and not very easy to reach. You walk for about 90 minutes in untouched nature, surrounded by birds and butterflies, until you reach the waterfalls. As a reward, you can go swimming directly and enjoy a picnic lunch right by the waterfall. Later you return to the boat and on the way back there is usually still time for a snorkeling trip at Sawandarak village on Mansuar Island. For years, the residents have decided to quit fishing to preserve the underwater heritage of their village. Their efforts have paid off, making Sawandarek one of the most remarkable sites for snorkeling in Raja Ampat.

Full day excursion. Accommodation: Wooden chalet. Meals: full board

Piaynemo and the Star Lagoon, snorkeling and visits of Arborek and Yenbuba villages

Snorkeling at Meoskun Island & Friwen Wall, excursion to the magical Kalibiru River

Start your day with a beautiful snorkeling session at Meoskun Island where you may see sweetlips fish & wobbegong shark schooling. Then head to the magical Kalibiru River. This beautiful turquoise river glows so brightly that it looks like it has underwater lights. Due to a natural phenomenon between the water and the sunlight, the small channels of the river appear very pure blue and phosphorescent. After a swim and a picnic lunch, enjoy another snorkel at the famous Friwen Wall. This underwater drop-off is rich in colorful corals and large pelagic fish. Return to the resort in the late afternoon.

Full day excursion. Accommodation: Wooden chalet. Meals: full board.
