At MahaRaja, we go beyond the expected to create unique Eco resort experiences.
This applies even to diving, as we want to create a one-of-a-kind Raja Ampat diving experience for you. Our electric solar powered boat will take you to the best spots all around Batanta – our dive area in Raja Ampat - and you will have the opportunity to take part in a vast variety of exciting diving expeditions and activities.
With MahaRaja you will go diving in the most untapped and pristine dive sites in Batanta. Here, you will be the only diver - surrounded only by marine life and the magic of the ocean. You will not find these dive sites in any Raja Ampat list or book, as they are unique to MahaRaja and we can guarantee that you will be astonished by them!
Another unique experience you will have at MahaRaja is the night dive. You will dive with a special UV Fluo torch, which is invisible for the marine life and is not disturbing their sleep, their mating or their night activities. Thanks to a special filter, you will see everything, and you will see them in fluorescent! Imagine yourself immersing in the ocean, in an ‘Avatar’ mood, and you will have a sense of the unforgettable night dives waiting for you.
