Live Aboard in Raja Ampat’s archipelagoes
This trip will be on the Jakare, an elegant Indonesian style ship with traditional design and modern comfort. The fifteen hundred islands in the Raja Ampat archipelago are our paddling and snorkelling playground on our yacht-based trip. Using a traditional Indonesian style ship as our floating home, we travel in comfort as we cruise through the islands.
Air conditioned cabins with ensuites are perfect for a kayaking trip near the equator. We board our vessel in Sorong and paddle through the archipelago’s incredible cays, islets, secret caves and hidden bays.
The marine biodiversity and rich coral reefs are among the finest in the world. We are one of the first to paddle in this area and there is also opportunity for divers to explore the underwater world as the ship is fully equipped for guests to go scuba diving.
Traditional villages, lush rainforest and exotic birdlife ensure unique experiences each day. Don’t miss out on this extraordinary kayaking journey.
