Papua Diving Resorts – Raja Ampat – Indonesia

RARCC Conservation Centre

The RARCC – located next to Sorido Bay Resort


Being the pioneers who have been diving the Raja Ampat for over 20 years, we hired local people from day one. We created an alternative for destructive livelihood gathering. Several of our staff have been involved in illegal logging, blast fishing, shark finning and turtle poaching before. They were offered new positions in our team. Their experience helps us understand and counter these problems.
