Raja Ampat is a year-round diving destination.
High Season: from September to April.
This is considered high season, due to the large number of manta rays that come through then, to use the cleaning station.
Low Season: from May to August.
It’s considered low season because, after April, it is unusual to find manta rays at the cleaning station.
On the other hand, since there is no plankton then, the water is clearer and has greater visibility than the rest of the year. Every year for a couple of weeks, in May or June, we can see ocean manta rays (up to 5 meters long) at dive sites like Blue Magic, just 20 minutes from the resort.
The rest of the marine life is equally impressive throughout the year.
Rain: In the tropics we can have rain any time, but the variable factor to consider is the wind
Wind: The windy season tends to be around June – August, although the waves are minimal and don’t usually affect the dives.
