Fully equipped with modern conveniences and staffed with experienced and professional crew, the Pearl of Papua offers liveaboard charters with departures all year round to the pristine Raja Ampat islands in the heart of the Coral Triangle.

Raja Ampat’s marine ecosystem is home to the highest marine biodiversity on Earth according to a 2002 survey by the Nature Conservancy.
The variety of marine life in the region makes Raja Ampat a truly amazing diving destination, with regular shark sightings, encounters with large groups of manta rays and turtles, numerous war wrecks, not to mention the diversity of its reefs – rich flats, dramatic slopes and vertical walls, mucky mangroves, beautiful lagoons and breathtaking pinnacles.
