DIVING RAJA AMPAT (4K) The Last Aquatic Paradise


This is Raja Ampat (4k) - dive into the dream of biodiversity

Breathtaking dives in Raja Ampat, West Papua, Kri Island, Indonesian coral reefs. As part of Coral Triangle Raja Ampat in West Papua has the highest biodiversity and the most colorful reefs on the planet, around 75% of the world’s coral species live here.

The size, maturity and healthiness of corals in this region is insane! A large part of the marine life in Raja Ampat is protected by 7 Marine Protected Areas (MPA's).

Raja Ampat is an archipelago of over 1500 small islands, including the four main islands of: Misool, Salawati, Batanta and Waigeo.

We started our trip in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), 2 flight transfers, 2 boat transfers and +30 hours later we arrived at Kri Island at Kri Eco Resort + Papua Diving for 10 days. Together with my daughter, Isabelle, we made 22 dives at the most beautiful dive sites there are.

All the dive sites are 5-25 minutes from Kri Island: Kri Eco Jetty, Chicken Bay, Mikes Point (!!), Blue Magic, Sardines, Sapokren Jetty, Melissa’s Garden (!!), Chicken Reef, Sorido Wall, Friwenbonda, Citrus Reef, Cape Kri and a lot more!

We stayed on Kri Island, at Kri Eco Resort. Kri Eco Resort is located in the center of the Raja Ampat Marine park at Kri Island. Papua Diving provides guided dives for Kri Eco Resort and (sister resort) Sorido Bay Resort. The local Papuan dive guides of Papua Diving are the best experienced dive guides in Raja Ampat.

Raja Ampat has more than 1000 species of fish, 540 species of coral and 700 species of mollusk. Predatory fish such as Barracudas, Blacktip Reef Sharks and Whitetip Reef Sharks are fully present. Large Oceanic Manta rays are attracted to the rich plankton waters. Schools of fish are everywhere and sometimes a bait ball can be seen. Beside the beauty marinelife the Kri’s forests are rich in birdlife and reptiles.

A special part of the marine park are the Mangroves at Hidden Bay (6:06), they offer critical nursing environments for juveniles of fish species. World's largest amount of mangrove coverage can be found in Indonesia. The Mangroves where one of the highlight’s of this trip!

During our stay we made excursions to Fam Islands, Hidden Bay and The Passage, they are the very definition of paradise.

- (7:00) Fam Islands are a group of islands in the Raja Ampat Archipelago. White limestone cliffs plunge into the sea. Ultramarine blue lagoons are nestled next to monumental pinnacles and untouched beaches.

- (6:06) Hidden Bay has a mangrove system of clear mirror-still blue water, where soft corals grow on the roots of mangrove trees. Rising above the foliage hornbills and parrots swoop between the trees. Hidden Bay is a complex network of interconnected water channels and lakes.

- (7:23) The Passage lies between the island of Gam and Waigeo. It can be described as river flowing between the two islands. The nutrient rich waters that are drawn through by the tides feed a vast wealth of marine biodiversity. Above water the sheer limestone cliffs make this a place excessively beautiful.

Places like this are sensitive to climate change. It's frightening to see how many people close their eyes for climate change. Climate change and a decrease of biodiversity are caused by overpopulation. Overpopulation is the main cause of most urgent problems in the world.

This film is the result of around 20 hours of 4k video footage and a few months editing. Shot in May / June 2019.

Raja Ampat: The Last Paradise

Discover the world above and below Raja Ampat’s pristine, turquoise waters with expert divemaster and local guide Dian Gafar. Consisting of four main islands surrounded by 1,500 islands of wild jungle, this Indonesian paradise has been virtually undiscovered by the western world. Fortunately, sustainability and conservation is in the DNA of its people and culture, meaning this emerging destination may just hang on to its picturesque virgin rainforests, biodiverse coral reefs, and rich cultural traditions as tourism surely takes hold.

Welcome to Raja Ampat in West Papua, Indonesia. Never heard of it? This remote area in the far east of Indonesia is one of the hottest new places for diving in Indonesia. It's a large area with thousands of islets, most of which are uninhabited. It's like a Robinson Crusoe life in the middle of nowhere - the most beautiful middle of nowhere.

I joined the Mutiara Laut liveaboard for 11 days of SCUBA diving in Raja Ampat's Misool, Penemu, and Kri areas, known for big schools of fish, Manta rays, Wobbegong sharks, reef sharks, and absolutely gorgeous islands.

This video features underwater footage of sea turtles, tons of fish, sea fans, a wide variety of corals, and drone footage of the islands of Raja Ampat.

The video begins in Sorong, which is the starting point for divers boarding a liveaboard in Raja Ampat. From there we head to Misool and onwards up north to Penemu. Most of the islands and beaches featured here have no other people -just birds!

Check out these white sand beaches, incredible sunsets, and the amazing crew and ship, the Mutiara Laut. For an amazing diving experience in Raja Ampat, look no further.


Diving Raja Ampat 2020 | Epicenter of Marine Biodiversity [4K]

Diving in Raja Ampat, Indonesia, with the new White Manta liveaboard (Dec 2019/Jan 2020).

Raja Ampat represents one of the most pristine coral reefs left on earth with more than 1700 species of fish and 600 species of hard coral, 75% of the world's coral species.

Dive sites include Melissa's garden (the most beautiful hard coral garden I have ever seen with 100% coral cover), Magic Mountain (giant oceanic manta rays), Cape Kri (huge school of sweetlips), Blue Magic (walls of schooling fish), and Boo Windows (stunning soft corals).

Camera: Sony a6300
Housing: Fantasea FA6500 V2
Lens: Sony 35mm f/1.8

How to get great color with a Sony a6300/a6500 without video lights or a color filter:

I set the white balance to 9900K and increased the amber and magenta (A-B: A4, G-M: M4). This was a good starting point for color grading.

I used Davinci Resolve for color grading. Under the Color tab, click on Color Wheels and under Scopes click on Waveform. For each clip, I first reduced Lift to around 0 and then increased Gain to around 896. I then made small adjustments with Gamma. This usually gave me a great result.

Sometimes I increased contrast to 1.1 or 1.2 and I sometimes set Temperature between 500-1500 and tint to 100. On the manta clip I used the Pick Black Point.

PIAYNEMO Island Hopping | RAJA AMPAT | travel Indonesia vlog

In this Indonesia travel vlog we visit Pianemo Raja Ampat. This beautiful part of Eastern Indonesia is very close to Papua, and famous the large schools of fish seen diving and snorkeling. Besides this, huge karst islands rise out of the turquoise ocean like teeth and form incredible lagoons. This makes the island hopping experience here in Raja Ampat some of the best in the world as well.

In this vlog we hike up to the top of the Piaynemo view point, race back down to get a shot in the lagoon, have lunch with sharks, and then end up at a Rainy Batu Pencil to end the day.

Big love to Wonderful Indonesia for hosting this trip!

Scuba Diving Raja Ampat and the Banda Sea in Indonesia

Raja Ampat has been the holy grail of my diving bucket list for as long as I can remember. So, when I was given the opportunity to sail on my first ever diving liveaboard in my dream destination, you can imagine my excitement!

Our liveaboard sailed from Raja Ampat through the Banda Sea and I averaged 3 dives a day. This region is definitely one of the most beautiful places to dive in the world.

We discovered pristine reefs, giant schools of fish, sea turtles, manta rays, honeycomb eels and even poisonous sea snakes! We also saw lots of amazing and weird creatures on our muck and night dives!

Diving in Raja Ampat - The Best Diving In The World

In this week's episode we're in Raja Ampat, Indonesia on an incredible dive Trip of Wonders with Wonderful Indonesia and The Ministry Of Tourism Indonesia and I'm blown away by the quality of the dives.

We spot the very rare Wobbegong Shark (Don't miss it) and some of the healthiest corals in the world. We also head to Piaynemo, a group of islands that will probably go down as one of the most stunning places I've ever seen in travel.

The diving is astonishing and I managed to get some epic clips, so check it out and let me know what you think!

Hi, we’re Gem & Alex Swan, in 2017 we quit our jobs, rented out our house and set off on the adventure of a lifetime. We’ve been travelling continuously since then, and have been lucky enough to have some amazing experiences and meet some great people.

Before our trip we were glued to YouTube, every evening we watched travel vlogs by @karaandnate, @lifeofjord, @lostleblanc @markwiens and @funforlouis, and these content creators inspired us to document our travels on YouTube too. We bought a new camera, and started the steep learning curve of shooting and editing videos, and producing travel vlogs of our epic trip!

We have four main passions:
- Scuba diving
- Fantastic food
- Beautiful natural landscapes
- Local wildlife
