The area of Raja Ampat has the most marine biodiversity in the world. To date, over 1300 species of coral reef fish have been recorded, and over 550 species of hard coral (which equates to 70% of all known hard coral species on the planet). Everywhere you look is teeming with life. I’ve been caught on several occasions starring at a school of fish in the mid ground only to see a shark or turtle 10 meters further. Or to look a foot in front of my goggles to see a florescent jellyfish.
