After almost three years, we were back to Raja Ampat, Indonesia, diving the Dampier Strait. After a 10-day scuba diving trip from Ambon through the Banda Sea, Seram Sea and the Misool, we disembarked in Waisai, where we stayed at Meridian Adventure Scuba Dive Resort for six days in November 2022. From the resort we had an opportunity to dive the Dampier Strait, which never disappoints. Please see it by yourself:
 
Woot. Awesome video thanks for sharing. How was the dive operation would you recommend?

Very nice video! What's the critter at 3:39?
 
Very nice,

I am going to Raja for the first time in March, your video makes me even more excited.
What kind of camera gear were you using?

In summary, I would recommend this resort if your liveaboard starts from or ends at Waisai. You may choose to spend a few days at this resort before or after your trip, but not as a dive destination to spend your vacation at. I just posted by brief report about this resort: Trip Report - RAJA AMPAT: MERIDIAN ADVENTURE SCUBA DIVING RESORT

@Laval Travel question for you. did you have to use the PeduliLindungi app to upload any vaccine information? If so, did anyone check the app upon your arrival?

PeduliLindungi app was the first thing that they checked upon our arrival to Jakarta (from Tokyo). For local flights they have not checked it for us.
