Raja Ampat vs Komodo
I am underwater photographer and had great opportunity to visit Komodo, Wakatobi, and Great Barrier Reef in the past. Raja Ampat was always on my wish list of places to dive, but I always postponed this trip due its duration and expenses.
Could you please share with me your experience of diving Raja Ampat from underwater photography point of view? Is marine life in Raja Ampat much different from Komodo?
I am not interested in sharks, rather macro life and soft corals.
i have dived in R4, Komodo, Ambon and yes....Lembeh!
as u said in yr thread, macro life? between Ambon and Lembeh ? i would pick Lembeh as it involves less travelling (from Singapore).
i dive Lembeh on average 4 times a year and it has never, ever disappointed me. last i was there it was frogfish galore!
Ambon has its Wow factor but there are only 2 DC's there. and one of them did not impress me much ( shania twain style)
if you need to shoot corals as well then i would recomm that you dive with a DC in Manado where Bunaken and Lembeh is accessible then you would have covered all 3--manado, bunaken and lembeh?
all said, if you travel here, everywhere is great diving...
