Raja Ampat: Luxury Private Liveaboard Charter

Imagine pristine coral reefs, phenomenal biomass, endemic species, pelagics and diverse underwater reefscapes. Picture tropical islands in one of the most stunning areas of natural beauty on earth.  This is Raja Ampat in Indonesia – a scuba diving paradise.

Raja Ampat has something to offer everyone from beginners to seasoned divers with walls, slopes, canyons, sea mounts drifts and calm lagoons. The quality of the coral and the sheer volume of fish are difficult to match. Gorgonian fans grow to be meters across, soft corals provide kaleidoscope colors and when looking up, it can feel like you are underneath a fish express way. Pelagics such as sharks, tunas, trevally and barracudas frequently cruising by are a common sight on every dive.

If Raja Ampat is on your diving bucket list there is no better way to explore the region than by liveaboard. On board El Aleph you’ll enjoy 5 star service which is usually only associated with the most luxurious of hotels. Your private charter will allow you to explore the dive sites which you want to explore, when you want to explore them.

Private liveaboard charters in Raja Ampat mean that you can enjoy this incredible region and absorb the natural beauty both top-side and underwater at a leisurely pace. Cruise around the myriad of islands, stroll along virgin white sand beaches or venture into the mangrove forests with our stand up paddle boards and sea kayaks. This is the ultimate Raja Ampat adventure – unhurried and completely on your terms.

On board El Aleph you and your chosen group will have the freedom to do as much, or as little, as you like and our helpful crew will ensure your expectations are not just met, but exceeded. For those who would like to take part in a more active cruise experience we also have water skies, a banana boat, donut ring, water skis, wake boards and Raja Ampat is home to some staggering trekking, not just scuba diving and snorkeling.

For nature enthusiasts taking a private charter, Raja Ampat is an epi-center of unique terrestrial species and a mecca for bird lovers. Cruise around the islands of Batanta and Salawati and you’ll be able to see 3 birds of paradise: Wilson’s Bird of Paradise, Red Bird of Paradise and the King Bird of Paradise. As you paddle board or sea kayak through the jungle you’ll see the unique sight of the rainforest melting into the coral reef, occasional lazing lizards and even cuscus bears in the trees.

If you have little ones joining your private charter liveaboard they’ll have plenty of activities to keep them active and engaged. Your water babies will love the easy snorkeling in calm lagoons, playing on beaches, fishing for their supper and learning how to sail a real-life pirate ship!

El Aleph is much more than just a liveaboard, she is a unique 5 star vessel built to be enjoyed by her owner who has a keen eye for detail, an appreciation of the finer things in life and who wanted to enjoy unprecedented luxury, space and comfort. As a result, El Aleph was built to the highest specifications possible, with no expense being spared.
