Indonesia Raja Ampat – Cruise Expedition

Raja Ampat, which translates as «Four Kings,» is a group of limestone karst islands that were formed from a mythical myth and continue to astound and enthrall travelers with their spectacular landscapes that conceal hidden lagoons, bays, and beaches. Raja Ampat allows travelers to choose from thousands of private hideaways while on excursions to see the most biodiverse landscapes on earth. Simply said, you witness a National Geographic moment every day.

World-class wildlife adventures may be held on land and in the water at Raja Ampat. Famous 19th-century naturalist Alfred Russell Wallace has discovered species of the bird of paradise here that are unique to this area of the planet. One of life’s most rewarding wildlife experiences is undoubtedly catching a glimpse of the ethereal beauty of Wilson’s bird of paradise and Red bird of paradise, as well as their captivating behavior. These avian marvels coexist with 350 other bird species, including king parrots and forest kingfishers.

WHAT MAKES THIS TRIP EXTRAORDINARY

  • Visit Wayag Islands, the most iconic islands in the Raja Ampat area.
  • Dive or snorkel in Cape Kri, a fantastic reef that supports a tremendous number of reef fish.
  • Explore Kabui Bay and discover remote local villages adorned with spectacular caves.
  • Visit the Nature-rich area of Dayang & Birie Island, an absolute birder paradise.
  • Get in touch with locals at Arborek Island, home of a welcoming Papuan community, and dive in search of enormous manta rays.

The Ships

Aqua Blu

Aqua Blu is a striking maritime statement with a distinguished history as the former British Naval Explorer HMS Beagle and then as the private yacht of a European aristocratic family. The Dutch yacht design guru Cor D. Rover oversaw a 2019 refurbishment that brought the ship up to world-class cruising standards. When guests step foot aboard this one-of-a-kind cruise ship, they can anticipate experiencing a distinguished sense of history and maritime progress.

Cor has artfully combined a brass-and-ivory interior motif with roomy and welcoming indoor and outdoor communal spaces, including a sun deck, inside the five-deck, 15-suite Aqua Blu.

Aqua Blu’s navy background makes it the ideal vessel to travel the vast seas of East Indonesia since it is faster, further, and more safe and comfortable. The ship has gained the highest international safety standards (RINA, SOLAS, ISM) and has Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers for the best comfort when at anchor or sailing.

The range of Aqua Blu is far superior to that of its rivals in East Indonesia. The ship allows travelers on board to experience the most diverse, enjoyable, and rewarding coastal cruise itineraries in this wild and breathtakingly beautiful corner of the world. It can go great distances in a short time and any sea state.
