If you want to learn how to create engaging content (and make a living out of it!), enjoy hour-long laughs at the beach for sunset, and want to explore some of the most beautiful and remote places on earth, then join us on this amazing trip around the stunning Raja Ampat islands.

Uninhabited and exceptionally picturesque, Wayag encompasses a vast area of 155,000 hectares and is renowned for its stunning atolls and lagoons. Every angle offers breathtaking scenery, featuring pristine beaches and distinctive Karst Islands that resemble mushrooms emerging from the sea.

In the morning, we’ll ascend to a summit viewpoint that offers spectacular panoramic views.

We’ll be up early today to go searching for the elusive and beautiful Red Bird of Paradise near Sawingkrai Village on the island of Gam.

We’ll be hoping to find a male, which has an emerald green face, a pair of elongated black corkscrew-shaped tail wires, dark green feather pom-poms above each eye, and a train of glossy crimson red plumes with whitish tips at either side of the breast.

After our morning expedition, we’ll move on to Dampier Strait. Another well-known area of Raja Ampat, Dampier Strait is a protected marine park that separates the islands of Waigeo and Batanta, and covers a total area of 353,531 hectares. The topography of the Dampier allows the Indonesian throughflow to pass through, producing strong currents. As a result, you can see a diversity of endemic marine life that you can’t find anywhere else.

Mansuar Island is situated along the northern expanse of Dampier Strait, serving as a crucial waypoint for diverse marine life traversing the region. The remarkably vibrant coral gardens house resident groups of bumphead parrotfish, along with schools of barracuda, unicornfish, and fusiliers.

Encounters with green and hawksbill turtles, as well as sightings of friendly black and white-tip sharks along the reef margins, are commonplace here. The strong currents around the island create an underwater landscape adorned with a forest of red and yellow sea fans. We’ll visit a number of different snorkel spots throughout the day, as well as explore isolated sandbars such as Pasir Timbul.
