Beyond the Galapagos - Experience Raja Ampat and The Coral Triangle

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. Every sunrise and sunset is an inspiring and life-affirming sight to behold even if it only flirts with our senses for a fleeting moment at the center of the planet.

Raja Ampat sits at the heart of The Coral Triangle and is home to the most diverse, exceptional and plentiful underwater species of coral and marine life in the world.

Knowledgeable, approachable, but mostly just bubbling over with enthusiasm for all things scientific and biological.
