Raja Ampat - on the board of Calico Jack

(December 2016)

Raja Ampat. Another dream became true this year, and I spent 12 days  on the liveaboard in Indonesia, my second (or third)  home, which I just left last May.

Me and a friend of mine booked the boat Calico Jack, and spent on this pirate ship, owned by cool Australian, amazing time around all Raja Ampat. Our cruise started at Sorong, went down around Papua to Southern Raja Ampat and back to the North. 

The time we spent on the boat was amazing. Dives were awesome, very different people from all around the world were part of the challenging almost two weeks of diving this place.

Except of diving we made few excursions around, land trips, hikes and barbecue on the beach. Trip was done at the raining season, so we had very wet time mostly, but beauty and amazing underwater life in this part of Indonesia made this trip unforgettable.


Dives were usually hard to decide, if to set up the camera for wide angle or macro, as each dive site had both. Incredible sea fans surrounded by glassfihes, sharks, wobbegongs, mantas, school of fishes everywhere, and empty clean beaches were the most frequented scenery of these days.

Calico Jack was a great choice.
