Raja Ampat & Banda Islands

(12 night trips | May & October)

Emperor requires that you have 30 logged dives to join this trip. We require that you are Advanced Open Water or equivalent. All diving is made from zodiacs to give precise entry and exit points. Currents can be strong. If you are Open Water or equivalent you will be required to take part in the Advanced Open Water course on-board.

Ports of Embarkation: Sorong, Ambon

The Ambon to Sorong cruise is special because it takes in two magnificent regions in the one cruise. Beginning in Ambon we head first to the Banda Islands (original Spice Islands) before rounding the east coast of Seram and rejoining the south and central sections of Raja Ampat. The Banda Islands will offer the opportunity for some pelagic action, hopefully hammerheads too, before diving arguably one of the best dive locations worldwide, South Raja Ampat.

This cruise will take in the Banda Islands plus the Southern and Central sections of Raja Ampat.
