In the latest issue of Dive Travel Adventures, underwater photographer Sean Chinn tells us about his experience in Raja Ampat aboard the magnificent La Galigo. So did the so-called “last paradise’ live up to his high expectations? Read his article to find out!
Raja Ampat is on a lot of diver’s bucket list. But sometimes, when our expectations are too high, we can be disappointed. But after reading Sean’s description of his liveaboard trip, it seems the Raja Ampat has, once again, delivered its wonders.
Seann was impressed by the abundance of fish around all the dive sites he visited. From manta rays and wobbegong sharks to nudibranchs, the diversity of species found in the area is truly impressive. Sean even found himself frustrated on some occasions as he the choice between wide angle and macro photography setup was a difficult call… We’ve all been there, ready to shoot majestic manta rays and finding that Denise pygmy seahorse we have been desperately looking for during our last trip… But the great thing about doing a liveaboard in Raja Ampat is that you will mostly have another chance to find the most thought after critters.
