How do you get to the port city for the boat transfer and do they offer nitrox ?
By Terry H Anderson in TX, US at Aug 12, 2013 09:43 EST  
Grand Komodo also is a travel agent, so they will arrange all flights inside Indonesia. We flew on Lion Air from Manado to Sorong, the port city in Raja Ampat, but in the past have flown from Bali. Tian, chief of reservations, will set up the flights, and any hotels: chief-resa@gkradl.com I don't use nitrox so ask tian if they have nitrox. All the dives are about 70 minutes, usually with the last 20 minutes under 10 meters. Best, TA
