I personally havent been to Raja Ampat, its always a dream destination, but from my previous research it depends on which part of Raja Ampat you want to dive and how much you want to spend for example liveaboard vs on-land, central vs southern, resort vs homestay, the famous ones are: Papex, Misool Eco, raja ampat biodiversity resort, sorido bay resort (doesnt dive on Sunday last I read), etc...

on the expenses of look like I am trying to promote other forum, you can also have a look at scubaboard indonesia, someone wrote a review of diving in Raja Ampat with different operators for like 10 week..

Good Luck, hope you had fun!

Look for some dive groups that organise trips overseas. Depending on their customer base, they may have trips to R4 that may suit your travel dates/budget.

If not, then I guess google will be your best friend. Most people who dive in R4 go for LOBs cause that's the easiest to move around dive sites. You could also wait till MIDE in June to see if there'll be any booths promoting R4.

I did land based and was staying at Waiwo Dive Resort, but the only reason was because my friend was organising it, price was right for me and hence the opportunity to tag along. Dive sites were far away and the boats were not that fast, so it took at least 2 hours to get to most dive sites on a small speed boat. But this was also almost 10 years ago, so things may have changed now. Would definitely go for LOB experience next trip.

R4 is a must dive for every diver, have fun!

Just came back from Koh lipe and had my aow and fun dives done there. had a blast there esepcially stonehedge dive site.
they allowed me to use the dive com watch thingie and it looks really interesting. am thinking of getting suunto zoop watch as a starter watch but its so bulky.

am wondering how's the dive sites comparing koh tao, koh samui and koh lipe. will it be any better if i dive in koh tao / koh samui.

if you were to rank which location is better how much you rank it? ranking all the dive location in thailand only.
1. Koh lipe.
2. Krabi
3. Koh samui
4. Koh tao
5. phuket

dive more and try/pinjam other people BCD to use first before investing in one. Also, are you more into back inflated or jacket style? why you wanna buy a BCD in the first place?
