Stay with locals

In conjunction with Kayak4Conservation the RARCC has established a network of locally owned guesthouses to welcome kayakers to relax and spend the night.

We have extended interest-free loans to interested parties within the Waigeo and Gam Island regions for the construction of these guesthouses. Once construction is completed, each guesthouse owner is accountable for management and maintenance of their own new enterprise.

Currently we are working with eight established guesthouses

These guesthouses are strategically located approximately 15 km from one another.
This allows for adventurous paddling through the breathtaking scenery of Raja Ampat, yet does not compromise on the provision of some basic infrastructure.

Have a look at our map, to see where these guest houses are located.
