A letter from the Freunds
Thank you so much for your interest in our trip to the famed Raja Ampat. The underwater world is nothing like we’ve ever seen elsewhere in our travels and we can’t wait to tell show you why.
Raja Ampat is the centre of marine biodiversity and life.
Scientists have done the fish and coral counts to prove it. What’s mind bogglingly amazing is how Raja Ampat’s visual magnificence proves the facts of science again and again.
Jürgen (Yogi) first dived on the Pindito in 1996 when this beautiful Indonesian phinisi vessel Pindito was starting out. Yogi was the first to find the Raja Ampat pygmy seahorse (right) for the Pindito owner Edi and his crew, when there was nothing yet known about this diminutive wonder.
Many trips later on the Pindito, there are so many great stories of discoveries and adventures we can tell. We have so much respect for Edi & his Pindito crew as the pioneers of diving in Raja Ampat and are so happy to be leading this photographic tour to show you how to capture its magnificence.
This photo tour will be about enjoying making wonderful photographs. You don’t need to worry about anything because we shall be with you all the time whenever you have any photographic questions or problems.
