Great news for divers – Pulau Arborek now has its own fully equipped dive centre!
Arborek Dive Shop is owned by local team member Marsel Mambrasar and Githa Anathasia, both of whom hold PADI Rescue Diver certification and have extensive Raja Ampat dive guiding experience.
The opening of Arborek Dive Shop means that guests at all Pulau Arborek Homestays now have the option of diving with an experienced local team. You don’t have to be staying on the island to dive with Arborek Dive Shop though – all are welcome. Pickups can be organised from Waisai or other Raja Ampat homestays – the price will depend on distance. Contact Arborek Dive Shop by one of the methods listed below for more info.
In addition to its fabulous local dive sites, Pulau Arborek also offers the closest accommodation available to the famed Manta Sandy and Manta Point dive sites. Arborek Dive Shop can of course also organise dives at any Raja Ampat site you want to visit – including some of their own “secret” sites that you’ll have all to yourself! Check out the “Dive Sites” tab on their page linked above for more.
For non-divers, Arborek Dive Shop offers sightseeing and snorkelling trips to various locations and snorkelling equipment is available for hire if you just want to check out the local sights.
Arborek Dive Shop is easy to find – it’s located on Street 1 and is visible from both the jetty and beach (see the map below).
PLEASE NOTE: Sundays are a day of church and family obligations in Raja Ampat, and diving is not available on Sundays. (Sunday afternoon boat trips can be arranged if required.)
