Comments It takes a long time to get there from the States but the trip, covering the southern and northern portions of the Raja Ampat region was worth it. Accommodations on the ship were fine in our case, food was plentiful as was the complimentary Bintang beer. The dive operation is well run with groups assigned for the entire trip. Dive guides were good critter finders but allowed you to also do your own thing. Overall, it was a great trip and worth the money spent. There are lot's of operators in the area to choose from, some more expensive and others less. I would use Siren Fleet again.
