Diving

Raja Ampat is deemed a species factory for marine life, with scientists proclaiming the bountiful reefs the benchmark against which all reefs on earth should be measured. Raja Ampat's reefs are home to 75% of all known coral species, 1'459 species of reef fish and counting. Continuously discovering new species, including sharks, shrimps and reef building corals, scientists acknowledge this region to be the earth's richest seascape. Conservation is active in Marine Protected Areas throughout Raja Ampat. In addition, the area around Pulau Pef is specifically protected by a no-take zone.

Raja Ampat is not only about diversity of species, but also of habitats. Colorful soft and hard coral gardens, walls and slopes, sea grass beds, blue water mangroves, caves and caverns, muck critters, adrenaline filled drift dives, crystal-clear water, wrecks, jelly fish bays and superbly fishy reefs.  From Giant Manta rays to tiny Pygmy seahorses, Raja Ampat has it all and the dive resort Raja4Divers is the place to stay!

The Dive Center is managed by Arif, backed by several qualified local dive guides with sunny personalities and infectious laughs. ​Rental gear is available, as well as a library of marine reference guides. ​For maximum convenience, the divers' personal diving gear is stored at the end of the jetty for the duration of the trip, where dive briefings are held and the dive boats are docked. ​​Photographers are welcome to use the air-conditioned camera room for storage and set-up of their camera gear.

Snorkeling

Snorkeling around Pulau Pef offers one of the biggest varieties anywhere in Raja Ampat. The water temperature is around 28°- 30°C  all year round and underwater visibility varies between 10 - 30m due to very nutrient rich water. Start with the house reef, offering perfect snorkeling conditions with a great variety of fish, critters and beautiful corals, stretching almost all the way around the island. At times, a school of Batfish resides under the pier, while the rays of sun light stream into the water. In the mangrove bay, you will find a mystical scenery with Archer and Cardinal Fish in the roots of the mangroves. ​If you are lucky, you might even spot the ​endemic Epaulette Shark at night. There are many different snorkeling locations in the area around Pulau Pef, some of which can be reached comfortably by kayak.
