Underwater Eden: A Pictorial Journey

Raja Empat Marine Park is the crown jewel of Indonesia’s National Park system, the undersea and topside equivalent of Yosemite or Yellowstone National Parks in terms its spectacular unspoiled biodiversity, its fragility in the face of commercial development or activity, and its allure as top-ranked ecotourist destination for snorkelers and divers alike.

Join Club Member, former Shedd Aquarium Docent, and Epicurean Dining Circle Host Daniel Balsam, for a pictorial journey through North and South Raja Ampat on the Indonesian Siren Live Aboard and discover an underwater Eden that is beckoning to become your next travel destination, when the international travel conditions do permit.

Dan Says: “My event appeals to Adventurists, (Marine) Biologists, Ecologists, Snorkelers/Scuba Divers and those looking for a fantastic escape from Covid-19 lock-down.”
