Preserved Area

Due to our unique remote location, the reefs around us are some of the most preserved of Raja Ampat. The extra effort to reach us means fewer divers are exploring our surroundings, making them more natural and intact.

Our dive team has the chance to find some new undiscovered spots regularly.
