How to visit Raja Ampat

I got perfect information about How to get to Raja Ampat from the site Stayrajaampat.com, here are several conclusions of the article:

1. Getting to Sorong

Sorong is the nearest city to Raja Ampat, before 2004, Raja Ampat is part of Sorong. But separated from Sorong Regency. In Sorong, there is an airport that connects several cities in Indonesia. The name of the airport is Domine Eduard Osok (IATA code: SOQ). There are no international flights into Sorong, so you can go to Sorong via several options:

  • Via Jakarta, there are lots of airlines fly from Southeast Asian hubs to Jakarta
  • Via Makassar, using Silk Air (Singapore-Makassar), using Air Asia (Kualalumpur-Makassar)
  • Via Manado, using Silk Air (Singapore-Manado)

There are a lot of direct flights to Sorong after arriving at Jakarta, Makassar, or Manado. It’s better to use some application to check the availability of flights from your departure point such as Traveloka, Tiket.com, Tiket2Indonesia, Skyscanner, or Mau ke Mana.

  • Jakarta to Sorong (CGK-SOQ): Xpress, Sriwijaya (Nam Air)
  • Makassar to Sorong (UPG-SOQ): Garuda, Xpress, Sriwijaya, Lion (Batik Air)
  • Manado to Sorong (MDC-SOQ): Lion (Wings Air)

2. Sorong to Waisai (the capital of the Raja Ampat regency)

There are two options that you can get: water transportation or local flights.

a. Water transportation

You can use a taxi from Sorong airport to the ferry harbor which takes around 10-20 minutes and costs around 100,000 Rupiahs (~ 10 USD). You can also use “ojek” – get a lift on the back of a motorbike – for about ~ 2 – 5 USD or 20,000 – 50,000 Rupiahs. There are also public minibusses (yellow buses) with only 6,000 Rupiahs from the main road to the city terminal and 3,000 Rupiahs from the terminal to the harbor.

There are two options for water transportation from Sorong to Raja Ampat at the harbor:

  • Public ferries

You can choose a normal ferry from Sorong to Waisai (on Waigeo island) in about 4 hours. The ticket for a normal ferry is 140,000. There is also the express ferry with a ticket price of IDR 130,000 for economy class, or IDR 220,000 for a VIP ticket. A VIP seat will give you an adjustable-back chair in an air-conditioned room. Both normal and express ferries run every day from both Sorong and Waisai scheduled at around 2.00 pm.

  • Speedboats

Speedboat options are good for in a hurry condition, you should pay more expensive ( ~100 – 500 USD) to charter one, and the price can be negotiated on the harbor.

b. Local flights

There is only one option to use a flight from Sorong to Waisai. A 16-seat twin otter operated by Susi Air. Schedules can be changed without notice, so be sure to contact the airline to confirm the current schedule.

3. Waisai to the islands

It’s important to understand that there are a lot of beautiful islands in Raja Ampat. There are 4 main islands: Misool, Waigeo, Batanta, and Salawati. In Waisai, you can easily find a lot of information centers about Raja Ampat and get some information about several places to go in Raja Ampat. Many homestays and hotels provide accommodations to transform you into the place you want. The cost of transfer from Waisai to the islands is a sore point for many travelers. Boat transfer prices are higher than they should be and bargaining rarely yields a substantial discount on the asking prices.

Diving Season in Raja Ampat

During the months of October until the end of April, most Indonesian liveaboards visit Raja Ampat. This time range is the best for visiting Raja Ampat, because of the local weather conditions. In July to mid-September, strong winds and rain can cause rough seas which cause boats to schedule other areas to visit and close some of the dive resorts in this period.
