Sailing the Dampier Strait, west Waigeo and Gam islands

Experience eight days of world class diving as you sail through the the center of Raja Ampat, discover why Raja Ampat is called the heart of the world's coral reef biodiversity.

The Dampier Strait is where scuba diving in Raja Ampat was first started back in the 1990’s, with pioneers like Max Ammer operating from basic scuba camps on Kri island at the western end of the Strait.

Physically the Strait is the large passage of water between the islands of Gam & Waigeo in the north and Batanta in the south, which takes its name from the English explorer-adventurer William Dampier who first charted the area in the 17th century.

Note: Booking price is per person for a shared cabin. Maximum two divers per cabin. Guests are requested to pay a harbor clearance and a Raja Ampat Marine Park entrance fee of € 150 per person to support management of the park.

Important: Due to the new local regulations we start our trips from now on in Waisai (Pulau Waigeo). This is an 2 hours ferry ride leaving from the harbor in Sorong. The guests will be picked up from the airport in Sorong and guided on the ferry to Waisai. We advise our guests to arrive at the Domine Eduard Osok airport in Sorong early in the morning of the first day of the trip, or if possible, the day before.

The following schedule is an example of what islands and reefs we visit during this trip. So keep in mind that trips are sometimes affected by weather and sea conditions so please be prepared for last-minute changes to a planned route or activity.
