Why You Should Stay Land Based

Why You Should Stay Land Based

The Raja Ampat archipelago consists of more than 1,500 islands and is located in the heart of the Indonesian province of West Papua, covering an area of ​​approximately 40,000 square kilometers. The region includes four main islands: Waigeo, Misool, Bantanta and Selewati. 

Each region offers unique and incredible diving and exploration experiences. For a long time, divers were limited to visiting one of these regions and joining one of these liveaboards, with the itinerary and months of their activity in each region. 

This practice limits divers' options when visiting the area and often results in many liveaboard experiences in the same area, leading to overcrowding of dive sites and natural attractions. Waste and emissions from ships contribute to an increase in overall pollution in the area. Experiences that are not conducive to the ecosystem of the area can also greatly change your perception of the trip.

For divers, shore diving is the best way to experience a dive site under the best conditions. Decisions can be made daily based on tides and other weather conditions to visit the best dive sites for that day.

When you're on a fixed cruise itinerary, it can be very disappointing to experience a dive site you've been looking forward to in less than ideal or even uncomfortable conditions because it's your only chance. Land-based diving allows you to dive where you want and experience it the way it is.

Why You Should Stay Land Based

Historically, land-based options that could provide divers with a platform to explore the larger area of ​​Raja Ampat were limited as land-based operations were limited to the areas they could visit and the dive sites they offered. This has changed in recent years as land operations serve larger areas and offer a greater variety of dive sites - some significantly more than others. 

While many visitors to the region will be concerned about the environmental impact of these land operations and the reliability of the submersibles, equipment and crews, this has also improved significantly in recent years. Local communities and diving operations are now more aware than ever of their impact; this has spread to local communities who also benefit from onshore operations.

Local communities have begun to promote and practice environmentally responsible tourism practices and take pride in their paradise. From cleaning beaches and dive spots to guided tours and experiences to showcase the locals' way of life and experience nature. Communities build the future for all by maintaining and protecting what they own.

You can also enjoy a comfortable stay if you choose the overland option. In an area that can get very humid, there is nothing more refreshing than returning from a dive with a clean shower and air-conditioned accommodation. 

Why You Should Stay Land Based

Choose from an incredible meal from the menu, freshly prepared for you, enjoy some sightseeing and end your day with a poolside cocktail while admiring the incredible sunset. The perfect base to relax, unwind and reflect on the incredible day you just spent. Onshore also gives you the opportunity for more privacy and space. 

For many people, the confinement of sharing a living space with many other people is not at all pleasant and is an important factor in vacation planning, especially now. Onshore operations are highly regulated to comply with the latest health advice and regulations, which is an important factor to consider.

Raja Ampat is home to some of the most breathtakingly beautiful limestone escarpments and conformations offering inconceivable lookouts, thick natural timbers alive with an cornucopia of unique wildlife, and vibrant little municipalities and townlets with the friendliest original communities. 

Land- grounded diving provides an occasion to witness all this diurnal and go on inconceivable passages to condense your experience. From early morning or evening paddleboarding safaris, walking tenures to find the catcalls of paradise, visiting the original plum granges, and indeed taking a dip in the cool waters of the blue swash, you can do it all while passing the stylish diving possible. The dream diving trip and perfect vacation experience. 

Choosing a land- grounded option not only maximizes your enjoyment, comfort, and overall experience, it also directly aids the original communities and their futures. There really is no more or further responsible way to travel when visiting the region.
