Why you should NEVER go diving in Raja Ampat

Why you should NEVER go diving in Raja Ampat

Posted by Leanne Sturrock on 10th Oct 2016

First of all, where even IS 'Raja Ampat'? Like anyone even cares enough to know.

Raja Ampat

When something's this far off the map, how could you expect anyone to go? It's not like there's anything to see there.

Raja Ampat

You'll never catch me stepping foot in their oceans.

Diving

It just all seems so plain.

Raja Ampat Ocean

So boring.

Tropical fish

With no mystery at all.

Underwater cave

I've heard their wildlife - whatever they even have there - is SUPER dull, too.

Tropical fish

So ordinary.

Manta ray

And really unfriendly.

Scuba diver and turtle

So save your money. Don't visit Raja Ampat.

Raja Ampat

You'll learn nothing.

Diving

See nothing.

Coral

DO nothing.

Raja Ampat

What a waste of time.
