Snorkeling Tour in Raja Ampat
Raja Ampat has been famous as the number 1 destination for marine tourism. Every year, tens of thousands of scuba divers and snorkelers go there to see tropical fish that thrive in pristine coral reef of the archipelago. Until mid-2011, marine biologists recorded 1,427 reef fish and 553 hard corals and 42 mantis shrimp.  These numbers have brought Raja Ampat as the richest in the world for marine biodiversity. Some of the marine animals that visitors may see include Wobeggong Shark, Raja Epaulette Shark, Manta, Giant Trevally, Black Tip Reef Shark, Bluefin Trevally, Grouper, Red Slender Anthias, Damselfish, Butterflyfish, Moorish Idol, Anemonefish, Spadefish, Scads, and a lot more.
The snorkeling and sightseeing tour usually lasts for 5 days/ nights.
