“Diving Raja Ampat at Doberai Eco Resort”

Amazing base for exploring the fantastic subsea treasures of Raja Ampat. The food was better than we anticipated for a remote location, the staff were all friendly and helpful, and we loved playing with Etos the resort dog on the beach. The accommodation was basic, but the setting was spectacular.

Best of all our Dive Master Ade was organized, knowledgeable, competent, and made us feel very comfortable. He does a pre-dive briefing by sketching out a diagram of the dive site from memory. He has a remarkable eye for the micro wonders such as nudibranches and pygmy sea horses, so stay close to him while you dive to not miss a thing. The diving was incredible and there are dozens of great dive sites within a 10-30 minutes of the resort.
