How To Get To Raja Ampat, Indonesia
With the development of transport services to the area, there is now an airport that is serviceable by commercial planes direct to Raja Ampat Waisai Airport on the Island of Waigeo. Making the journey to Raja Ampat faster and easier. Being fairly new and still a small airport there is an ever-changing schedule for the flights in and out of the airport.
As the area develops with increasing numbers of visitors the schedule is sure to improve. The easiest way to get to Raja Ampat is to fly to Sorong from Jakarta, Makassar, Ambon or Manado. There are no direct international flights to West Papua Province (YET).
After arriving at Sorong Airport, you have two options for reaching Meridian Adventure Dive:
1) BY DAILY PUBLIC FERRY, FROM SORONG TO WAISAI. The Express Ferry takes around 2hrs and departs daily at 9am and 2pm, from either port. There is no online or booking system yet in place for buying the ferry tickets, it’s a matter of turning up and buying them directly from the counter. Arrange with Meridian Adventure for transfers from the airport and ferry.
2) BY LOCAL BOAT Local Boats can be arranged as pick-up from Sorong to Waisai. It will still be a 2-hour trip. Taxis are readily available to drive you the resort or we can organise a pick-up upon request. Get in touch if you have any questions about getting to Raja Ampat. See you soon!
