Nestled in the heart of the Coral Triangle, Raja Ampat is often hailed as the crown jewel of diving destinations. But what makes this Indonesian paradise so special?

As the proud team behind Soul Scuba Divers on Kri Island, we're excited to share why Raja Ampat is a diver's dream come true and how our focus on marine conservation sets us apart.

A Biodiversity Hotspot

Raja Ampat, meaning "Four Kings," consists of over 1,500 small islands, cays, and shoals, and is renowned for its incredible biodiversity. This region is home to approximately 75% of the world's coral species and over 1,300 species of reef fish. Diving here is like swimming in an underwater kaleidoscope, where every turn reveals vibrant corals, schools of tropical fish, and the occasional sighting of majestic manta rays and whale sharks.

Pristine and Unspoiled Reefs

One of the main reasons divers flock to Raja Ampat is the pristine condition of its reefs. Thanks to its remote location and strong conservation efforts, the coral reefs here are some of the healthiest in the world. At Soul Scuba Divers, we take great pride in contributing to the preservation of these underwater treasures. Our marine conservation programs, run through our NGO Soul Initiatives, focus on reef monitoring, coral planting, and educating local communities on sustainable practices.

Unique Dive Sites

From shallow coral gardens perfect for beginners to deep walls and thrilling drift dives for the more experienced, there's something for everyone. One of our favorite sites, Cape Kri, boasts the world record for the most fish species recorded on a single dive. Divers here can expect to see everything from tiny pygmy seahorses to large pelagics in a single dive. Read more about dive sites from here.

Another fantastic aspect of diving in Raja Ampat is the year-round diving conditions. The water temperatures range from 27-30°C (80-86°F), and visibility can reach up to 30 meters (100 feet) or more. The calm seas and diverse marine life make it an ideal destination for both novice and seasoned divers alike.
