Expedition Kayaking in THE Raja Ampat ARCHIPELAGO

Raja Ampat is a spectacular paradise, teeming with wildlife above and below the surface. The area has one of the world’s highest concentration of marine biodiversity and is a diving “hot spot”. The paddling is world class and with 1500 limestone islands to explore, the dazzling variety is overwhelming as we cruise through a maze of tiny islands.

On this eight day trip we enjoy seven days of kayaking, staying in simple guesthouses, a fantastic way to experience the local culture. The trip is a true expedition in nature and each day brings exciting new adventures. We are way off the “tourist” path and with only subsistence fishing by local villagers allowed in the area, the ecosystem is largely undisturbed. 

Teeming with fish and colourful corals, we’ll snorkel at every opportunity and take in the wonders of the underwater world. We’ll explore vast subterranean limestone caves, full of incredible stalactites and stalagmites which few people have set foot in.

The guesthouses are basic but comfortable, with most built over or near to the ocean, providing incredible views. This is a unique trip which will appeal to those who love a tropical adventure.
