Raja Ampat Paddling Adventure
Boat Supported Kayaking in Raja Ampat's island paradise
9 day trip 6-7 days kayaking
On our new boat supported trip, paddlers will venture further into the amazing archipelago that makes up Raja Ampat. Our 60-foot wooden boat allows us to launch the kayaks and explore pristine beaches, local fishing villages and the best paddling and snorkel sites. On this nine day trip we enjoy six to seven days of kayaking, camping overnight on stunning beaches and enjoying dinner under the stars prepared by our boat crew. This is a true expedition in nature, with the added comfort of the boat to carry supplies and travel to locations that can't be reached on unsupported camping trips, discovering remote islands not usually visited by travellers. The boat is not luxurious, but has a sun deck, kitchen, bathroom and toilet and a small tender that can be used for snorkelling and hiking expeditions. The water teems with colourful fish and corals and if we’re not in our kayaks, we’ll be in the water discovering this amazing world. After seven incredible days in the islands, we’ll return to Sorong in the morning where the trip concludes.
