Beyond the Galapagos - Experience Raja Ampat and The Coral Triangle The sun rises and sets at 6:30am and 6:30pm every day along the equator all year, every year where two stunning archipelagos of unique life and great marine biodiversity tempt adventure seekers to experience their natural wonders.

On opposite sides of the globe sit the Galapagos, that Darwinian ecological mecca of rugged volcanic terrain and highly adapted animal life, and it’s lesser known sister nation in Natural Selection, Raja Ampat, Indonesia.

It was, I thought, the worst example of creeping Western materialism taking over the world. I hated it. What was different between my experiences in 1971 and 1995? Me. I...
