Max Ammer, the founder of Papua Diving, first came to the region over 21 year ago following his passion to search for submerged World War II aircraft. After spending so much time in Raja Ampat Max fell in love with the Papuan people and started a number of initiatives to support the local Papuan communities.
Papua Diving was one of the projects. It’s mission: to bring much needed money to the local people by enabling divers who had never heard of the region to be amazed by the wonders of the unspoiled aquatic world here.
Built in year 2011, HamuEco Lodge offers affordable and unforgettable experiences of Raja Ampat to their guest.
The idea of establishing HamuEco started from a casual discussion with local people that desire to improve their life quality and also participate developing Raja Ampat tourism.
