"Lagoon tour in Misool
At the beginning of November 2015, I was (again) in Indonesia. ???? I boarded the WaowA magnificent three-masted ship dedicated to scuba diving, for a liveaboard from Ambon (Central Moluccas) to Sorong (West Papua). All my articles about this trip can be found at the end of the link below :
Updated February 2018. The Waow???? Unfortunately, this magnificent diving cruise ship that used to sail the waters of the Indonesian archipelago, and on which I had the chance to embark in 2015, no longer exists... ???? Unfortunately, it burned and sank in the bay of Cenderawasih, Indonesia, during the night of January 31 to February 1, 2018. I refer you to the message published on their Facebook page and on their site.
Steffan Kilby, the videographer of the Waow...doesn't just make movies underwater. He also has a drone. The device that makes the sound of a big bug... 😄 Steffan has given us stunning images of the southern islets of Misool... From the sky, this typical landscape of the archipelago of Raja Ampat is even more spectacular!
With his permission, I took some excerpts from it, to edit a short video with my own images made at the water's edge. So here is a small glimpse of our walk, called "lagoon tour", just before sunset, in the middle of this maze formed by karstic cliffs covered with virgin forest, plunging into the jade water...
Misool under the water
We've only spent two days in Misool and I must admit it doesn't taste like enough. Above water as well as underwater, the place is gorgeous.
For a glimpse of the dives and the incredible profusion of coral and underwater life, I invite you to check out the photos and video in the article below... So much beauty, it's like crying with happiness in your diving mask!
