Back from Raja Ampat

We spent the last two weeks in Indonesia sailing around on Indo Siren liveaboard for Alex Mustard’s latest workshop. Unfortunately Emirates airlines screwed up and we didn’t get our luggage until the day we were heading home! I’d like to thank everyone on the trip who lent us stuff to allow us to still have a good time, especially Alex who allowed me the use of his spare camera so all my photos this time around are from the Olympus OMD EM5 and of course my trusty iPhone.

Below is a little google map showing the areas we visited, click the little blue icons on the map for more info about each section. Over the next week or so I’ll dig out the photos and videos for you all :) The reefs there are amazing with sometimes challenging conditions (I bought my first reef hook) but chocked full of the most amazing encounters! We saw Mantas, sharks, cool macro critters including pygmy seahorses and squid. Too many times we heard compliants on the boat of too many fish ruining the photos ;)

  1. Sounds amazing and looking forward to the photos/videos :-)
    Bummer about your luggage but did you really need much apart from dive kit and swimming custom ;-)
