Saying Goodbye to Raja Ampat again!

As the spring 2018 season comes to an end in Raja Ampat, and we say our final goodbyes to the guests, it dawned upon us that soon it will be time to leave this underwater paradise in West Papua. With each passing trip, conditions continue to improve. 20+ meter visibility, gigantic schools of fishes, and endless critters are now the norm.

Blue Manta in the Ring of Fire

Bluemanta is cruising all year round in the beautiful seas of the indonesian archipelago, but no other route gives a sense of adventure and discovery as much as our CROSSING trips in the vast and deep BANDA SEA.

Sorong to Saumlaki crossing trip

From the very first day, welcoming our guests onboard the beautiful KM Blue Manta, it was clear that anticipation levels were high amongst dive staff and guests alike! Everyone was excitied to be embarking upon a true diving trip of a life time. Diving and wish list sightings dominated every conversation as all thoughts of the real world receeded and thoughts turned only to what mysteries the blue would reveal on this special crossing trip from Sorong to Saumlaki exploring the remote and exotic 'Forgotten Islands.'
