Guests will also embark on jungle treks, visit traditional villages, see a pearl farm, watch birds of paradise, glimpse ancient rock art and explore the isolated bays and lagoons via dinghy, whilst also enjoying snorkelling activities and illuminated bbq beach parties.

For those wanting to delve even further into Raja Ampat exploration, it’s possible to book multiple dive trips with Mutiara Laut back to back and the staff will ensure that you visit totally different dive sites on each one.
Probably the best liveaboard I’ve done to date! Water clarity was exceptional. The ever changing current made for some very interesting diving and the marine life was great.
Proximity and multitude of mantas just fantastic. Local guides a necessity. The service and setup on the boat was phenomenal.
This is not a ‘dive crazy’ boat although 4 dives a day is no problem. If you can afford it go for the master cabin – it is just lovely”.
