Diving

Diving in Raja Ampat

Misool Eco resort island is surrounded by a 1,220km2 of Marine Protected Area. Our island and our dive sites are protected by a 828 skq km No-Take Zone (NTZ). Inside this NTZ, all fishing, cyanide fishing, bombing, shark finning, harvesting of turtle eggs and shellfish are prohibited.

 

This means that our area's astounding marine biodiversity will only continue to grow. In 2010, Misool Eco Resort and Shark Savers successfully petitioned the Raja Ampat government to declare the Raja Ampat a Shark and Manta Sanctuary.

 

Raja Ampat, Indonesia, is home to the world's richest reefs and dive sites. Located at the heart of the Coral Triangle, the region sprawls over 4.6 million hectares (17,000 sq miles) and boasts the majority of the world's reef-building corals. In an area the size of two football fields, scientists discovered more than six times as many coral species as live in the entire Caribbean Sea.

 

Raja Ampat's reefs are home to over 700 species of mollusks and over 1,400 species of fish. Counted among those is the newly discovered 'walking' epaulette shark, commonly seen on night dives on our House Reef.

 

You can expect to dive a wide variety of sites during your stay at Misool Eco Resort. Our corner of southern Raja Ampat is particularly famous for its untouched reefs festooned with wildly colourful soft corals, expansive hard coral gardens, massive gorgonian sea fans, and rich reef life.

Some Customer Comments
 
- This place is AMAZING. Best place I've ever stayed. It's the one place I'd go back to. Again and again. Or indeed, just never leave. If you dive, it's incredible. I've dived all around the world, and this was by far the most outstanding and varied I've seen anywhere.
 
- I went to Misool Eco Resort again (5th time). The diving seems to be better every year. For the past 7 years fishing around the resort is not allowed anymore, so there is more fish every time. A few years ago i saw a shark every now and then. Now there are sharks on every dive. Saw mantas several times. This was the first time i was there in March/April and the visibility was very good. I found my stay here very relaxing, even with the 45 dives i did in two weeks.
