It has been the topic of discussions in diving enthusiast’s forums worldwide and the subject of fascination for the serious scuba diver who wants to really experience the amazing beauty of the Raja Ampat’s coral reefs. If the popularity reaches an all time high, it may well be a Mecca for divers of the world to visit at least once in their life time similar to the Hajj for the Muslims.

Thousand of bookings are made in travel agents to visit this place from tourists in US and UK with one goal in mind and that is to dive and see the coral reefs that have been so popular in many diving forums these last few years. In connection with this, we are also expected to see a lot of inquires and requests for travel and diving insurance.

Although these people already have their basic insurance protection, they are now being more informed of getting specific insurance for divers when they go do their passion and sport. Diving insurance does not only cover a person from accidents that could happen in their diving escapades but can also cover their diving equipment as well such as their compressors, etc.

Especially if one will take a diving trip to the Four Kings, you would be crazy do scuba dive here and not bring your underwater camera! What a spectacular view you will miss to document if you didn’t bring your camera with you. Diving insurance can also protect and cover your camera as well, saving you thousands of dollars in case something unwanted happens to your camera underwater.

Truly, the Raja Ampat is one of today’s most exciting places to take a vacation and dive to your hearts content with memories that you will remember through out your life.
