Arriving in Sorong, we travel to the port of Wasai where we board the traditional phinisi sailing boat the Mikumba, which we will call home for the next 7 nights exploring the national park.
Raja Ampat, meaning the Four Kings, is a highly protected, pristine National park and one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world.
A freedivers playground, coral gardens, walls, pinnacles and exhilarating drift dives make for a memorable underwater experience.
Expect colourful walls, a fantastic diversity of fish and rich coral gardens. We'll be exploring Raja Ampat's stunning underwater world on one breath, freediving swim-throughs, coral gardens, caves, drop-offs, manta points and jetties.
This adventure is open to all level of freedivers, if don’t know how we will teach you. You can expect guided movement, meditation and freedive breath-training all included on board. We want you to feel recharged and inspired after your 7 days at sea.

We have been using Mikumba II for a number of our charters and have found her to be a fast, stable and comfortable home.
She has a vast amount of shaded deck space, bean bags and a large saloon so finding your own private space to lounge, rest or read a book is not a problem.
Eight quality standard double cabins and two luxury en-suite rooms back up an impressive set of specifications for this vessel. In addition, the boat is supported by twin inflatable speedboats (crucial for safely navigating currents)—the boats and crew help ensure a safe, enjoyable, freediving trip.
We'll be bringing buoys for those who wish to line dive, and we'll be planning at least one night dive, which is often genuinely magical.
