getting here

The transfer to our dive resort gives you the chance to see the best of Indonesia's amazing Raja Ampat

Transfer to and from our island is via private speed boat. We depart Sorong at about 09:00, arriving at Misool Eco Resort 4-5 hours later.

The first leg of our journey leads us out of the busy Sorong harbour and through a mangrove-lined strait with unbroken swathes of jungle on either side. As we approach the mouth of the strait, you'll see some traditional Papuan villages along the banks.

The sea slowly shifts from brown to green and finally to vibrant blue during the second part of the trip. We'll be crossing open water, and you will likely see massive schools of bonito tuna feeding at the surface. Whale sightings are not unheard of.

The last leg of our journey brings us through the breathtaking scenery particular to southern Raja Ampat and the Misool area. There are myriad tiny karst islets and lagoons. About 45 minutes before we reach our island, we enter our No-Take Zone. We are often escorted by pods of playful dolphins.

We recommend our guests arrive in Sorong either on Garuda Indonesia or Express Air from Jakarta, both of which arrive early morning in Sorong. If you wish to arrive on a different flight, we suggest you arrive one day early in Sorong. We are more than happy to help you book your domestic flights.

Unless you are combining your stay with a local live-aboard, one night off-gassing in Sorong after your stay at Misool Eco Resort will be necessary. Your hotel night in Sorong after your 7, 9, or 12 night stay with us is included in the package price - in other words, night 8 or 13 of your journey is on us. We'll arrange your room as well as all meals, baggage services, and transfers to Sorong's airport in time for your flight the following morning. Please visit our FAQ page for more information.
