As part of their series of 2016 Diving & Snorkelling Guides, authors Tim Rock and Simon Pridmore have produced a brand new guide to Raja Ampat & Northeast Indonesia.
Diving or snorkelling in this remote region at the edge of the Pacific Ocean is a life affirming, bucket-list-topping experience! Abundantly rich in marine life, these seas are proving to be a gift for divers that keeps on giving. Raja Ampat is the superstar destination, but other areas such as Cenderawasih Bay, Triton Bay and Southwest Halmahera are shining brightly too and acquiring similarly mythical status.
This richly illustrated, detailed and informative guide is the first to cover all of these incredible places! It tells and shows you – the adventurous travelling diver – what to expect from this remote, fascinating and often downright astonishing part of the world. It will help you plan your trip, enhance your experience when you get there and provide you with the best possible souvenir of your visit.
And once you have been there, it will whet your appetite for adventures ahead – because you WILL be back!
The guide includes over 100 dive and snorkel sites, 240 colour images, travel advice, dive safety tips, topside attractions, diving terms in Indonesian and much, much more.
