From the May 2013 C&K photo gallery:

Photo by Frits Meyst. Sea kayakers explore Hidden Bay on Groot Fam Island, one of more than 1,500 small coral islands in the Raja Ampat archipelago. The reefs and blue-water mangroves teem with marine life, which supports the traditional Papuan way of life. The Raja Ampat Research and Conservation Centre supports community-based sustainable tourism in the islands, including sea kayaking and homestays.
