While exploring the underwater sites of Raja Ampat, we came across one of the best sightings of it all – The Worm!

One of our dive guides started showcasing strange underwater behaviour that did not fit any underwater hand signals divers are accustomed to. This was when The Worm was born, and we have been doing it at every dive site since then. It has become our signature move, expressing the boundless energy we experience being able to explore the hidden pockets of Raja Ampat, Indonesia.

WHEN TO DO THE WORM?

It is custom to do The Worm at the end of each dive, on the 3 min safety stop at 5 meters.

HOW TO DO THE WORM?
