Back to Sorong

20th June - Day 11

We will catch the ferry in the early morning, arriving back in Sorong at around noon.

A rough first estimate would put us in an area of €4.000 for 11 days - including everything. Prices can be tweaked in either direction by adjusting accommodation type, how many days we want to camp, the exact destinations we visit and more. 

This is just a first idea of what we think might fit you. We have included almost everything there is to visit in Misool in our plan. This is just a short description meant to provide an overview. We will add more detailed information once we get to a more advanced planning phase. If you feel that this is to much program or the trip is to expensive let us know.

Did we miss anything? How can we improve the plan? We have set up the alternative plan below.

Where does my money go?

Where does my money go?

What's Included

What Do You Get For Your Money?

Our price includes everything from taxes and fees, to accommodation, full board, transfers, private boat and everything else that comes to mind. the only things you need to pay out of your own pocket are personal expenses like alcohol, cigarettes and souvenirs.

Responsible Toursim

Understand. Respect. Protect.

We at Wisata Papua Indah take these 3 simple principles very seriously.

Nature

Although the term is horribly overused nowadays, we do our best to provide and ecologically friendly form of tourism.

Social

We work together with local businesses, providing them additional feedback and training where needed. Our goal is to bring a steady and fair income to those who deserve it, while filtering out those who do not play by the rules.

All Around Service

We take care of everything

From the beginning of your journey to the moment you leave, your personal guide will be by your side.

Raja Ampat's tourism is young and many of the locals are inexperienced. Miscommunication due to a lack of language and due to cultural differences are common. We are here to provide the link between local businesses and their charm on the one hand and visitors and their expectations on the other hand.

With us you don't miss out on either one - Raja Ampat's incredibly friendly people and their fascinating culture and nature, as well as reliable and professional service.

Accommodation

Finding the right place for you

We have numerous accommodations we work together with. We personally have experience with every single one of them and only take you to places we believe will fit your standards.

Price

There is a variety of price classes in accommodations. Depending on your wishes we try to find the best fit for you. To give you an idea, here are the usual rates:

  • Standard Homestays: ~ $30

  • Higher Standard Homestays/Guesthouses, Locally Owned Resorts: ~ $50 - $120

  • High Class Resorts: ~$250 - $$$$

Keep in mind that these prices are due to remoteness of the destination. Services provided do not match equal price classes in other parts of the world.

Activities

Endless Possibilities

There is a lot to do and to explore in Raja Ampat. Wherever you are, the next amazing thing is just around the corner.

Under the surface the most biodiverse marine ecosystem is waiting to be explored, while the bigger islands are covered in lush rainforest home to many endemic species. From birds of paradise to cuscus and cassowary, Raja Ampat's jungles are home to many strange creatures.

The fissured coastlines offer thousands of opportunities the explore hidden corners and beautiful island worlds, untouched by tourism and forgotten by the modern world.

We want to provide a unique experience with just the right mix of adventure and leisure for you.

 

Information

Travel Made Easy

Weather and Sea Conditions

nothing to worry about

The weather in Raja Ampat is tropical warm and humid throughout the year. There are only small seasonal changes and although June/July and Dec/Jan are often referred to as rainy season, in reality there is no big change compared to any other month of the year. It is true, however, there are seasonally changing winds. From late Oct. to early April we expect calm sea and no more than a slight breeze every other day.

Visibility around this time of the year is usually around 30m or more. The water temperature is almost exactly 28.5°C, and even higher in shallow bays. Water conditions in Raja Ampat are near perfect all around the year.

You can follow the link and check out weather data from the past years if you are looking for additional information.

Safety and Health

better safe than sorry

All our guests need to prove that they have a valid travel insurance including emergency evacuation coverage.

Please understand that we are operating in a remote area, where professional medical care is far away. We take safety very seriously and are equipped for most eventualities, however there is always a risk traveling in wilderness.

Don't forget to bring personal medication. Although we always have a well equipped medicine cabinet onboard, we still recommend you bring your own medicine. If you are unsure about vaccinations and prophylactic treatments (e.g. malaria), please consult a tropical medicine specialist. There are many different opinions and approaches out there, make sure to get a second opinion. Please understand that we can not advice you on these matters, since none of us is a doctor.

Follow the link below for further information.

 

We Will Keep You Updated

Hopefully we were able to provide some useful first information. We are looking forward to your feedback and will adjust our plan accordingly.
