Raja Ampat, the Ultimate Dive Experience

“Raja Ampat has become one of my favorite dive spots in the world!” This was the first thing Ocean Enterprises President Werner Kurn said upon his return from his trip there this past February.

Werner, along with 15 other Ocean Enterprises adventure-seekers set out on an 11-day live-aboard trip of a lifetime which offered the full spectrum of dives; wall dives, drift dives, and even critter diving.

“I have never seen such a mix of healthy, colorful, and over sized critters before” according to OE traveler David Karp.

If you aren’t sure where Raja Ampat is, imagine a tiny spec on the map in the middle of Indonesia (after zooming in plenty of times of course). Then there you are, Raja Ampat!

Werner has dove all over the world, and after several visits to Raja Ampat, he still comes back every time gushing about something new he saw, or just how unique it is!

“The variety of coral and marine life is out of this world” according to Werner. And again, this coming from someone who has been everywhere one can imagine! Pictured to the right is Werner with a Wobbegong Shark.

The travel to get to Raja Ampat is quickly forgotten when the crew of the Arenui welcomes you aboard and pampers you for the entire trip. “The Arenui was spectacular! An incredible staff that knew your every need even before you did” said OE travelers the Yates.

When you learn about these “remote paradises” and decide that you want to take a trip there, it isn’t as easy to get it all coordinated as it would be to book a trip to London. This is one of the many reasons it is extremely beneficial to take advantage of the many years of experience our travel team here at Ocean Enterprises has. Between Werner, Myra Kurn, Sherrie Burks, Hayley Williams, and all of our amazing trip leaders, it would be hard pressed for someone to present a location where we haven’t been!

“We very much enjoy traveling with Ocean Enterprises because the trips are well planned, great value for the price, expertly managed, and best of all, a lot of fun” said Bob and Karen Schmitt who have also been to Rwanda, Botswana, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Palau (twice) and Guadalupe, Mexico with us.
