    Raja Ampat & Spice Islands Expedition Cruise
    18 nights
    from $28,420* per person twin share
    Exclusive: save $1,500 plus all meals, shore excursions and more
    The rich history and diverse marine life of Raja Ampat and Spice Islands are brought to life on this 18-night Coral Expeditions voyage. Aboard Coral Geographer you'll retrace the ancient trade routes of spice merchants trading Chinese silks for cloves, Indian cotton for nutmeg and Arabian coffee for pepper. Explore some of the hundreds of rarely visited islands of Raja Ampat whose waters harbour over 75% of the world’s coral and fish species. At Cenderawasih Bay, swim with the gentle whale sharks in what guests describe as a ‘once in a lifetime experience.’ Walk through vibrant village markets. Experience a traditional welcome at Banda Neira where your ship is serenaded by kora kora canoes. Enjoy the view over sunset drinks at 17th century Dutch Fort Belgica and climb atop Mount Pindito to marvel at one of the world’s most photographed marine scenes: the jagged green limestone cliffs and crystal clear water of Wayag.
