Bringing together over 25 years of dive industry experience from all over the world, our management team is comprised of a team of 7 people (including 6 instructors) with a collective 12 years experience working in the Raja Ampat region.

All of our managers are passionate divers and nature enthusiasts, and we take great pride and joy in sharing our resort and this region with all of our guests. A diverse team, our managers come from Indonesia, France, Germany, Australia and Turkey, and together we work hard to ensure that our resort exceeds our guest’s expectations in every way; from our restaurant, rooms, and of course the diving experience.

The Papua Explorers family also includes between 70-80 local staff, 70% of whom come from local villages, and our knowledge of the Dampier Strait and surrounding area is exceptional.

We look forward to welcoming you here at Papua Explorers, and immersing you in the abundance of amazing places, above and below the water, within Raja Ampat.
