    As you will see from my other reviews from this trip, Nut Tonton was our last stop on an whirlwind 8-day 4-homestay odyssey which took us to both the tippy top (Wayag) and the rock bottom (Misool) of Raja Ampat… and everything in between. We’re ecstatic we made it to the South. We were debating whether we should… and ultimately chose to… and what a good decision that was! Views like no other… remote yet accessible… just perfect. Abdul was our guide at Nut Tonton and traveled with us on the ferry both ways from Sorong to Misool and back. I was later told by him that his fluency in English is why the homestay contracts with him to offer his services as a guide to foreign groups. He is also a certified rescue diver, so as professional as they come. Abdul, unbeknownst to us was filming our excurions via drone for a customized video of our time in the South (links below) — obviously we could see he was operating the drone but we didn’t know that he was making a video especially for us — we thought he was doing promo marketing work for the homestay… so that was a super pleasant surprise. He went above and beyond, staying with us after we got off in Sorong and taking us to a shop on the way to the airport, so we could buy Raja Ampat T-shirts. He also took us on all the excursions to all the hot spots around… so that all was an A+. Here are links for the videos.

    Both link to the same videos but I understand Vimeo may be inaccessible in certain areas – however the Vimeo resolution is a lot better than Youtube.

    Thanks Abdul!

        Wow, that was a couple of years ago! OK no problem… this is the itinerary we followed, drawn up by another guide, and which included Misool. Enjoy!
