Diving & Snorkeling Guide to Raja Ampat & Northeast Indonesia





"A wonderfully thorough but concise guide that helps you quickly get a grip on exactly where all the best fishy action is located, both before the trip and while you're out on the ocean, Don't dive Northeast Indonesia without it! The book is great - it really did help me as we had a few occasions where the directors were saying we could do X Y or Z site and I could rush off to my cabin and look up what that actually meant. It was nice to have a third party opinion."
