Itinerary

Our Banda Sea liveaboard brings you across the Ring of Fire and the Forgotten Islands, blessed with some of the finest diving experience in Indonesia.

We visit many different islands and a great variety of dive sites as Banda Sea provides an abundance of scuba diving possibilities. To make the experience unique, our itineraries mostly combine the Banda Sea with another great destination such as Raja Ampat,  Alor,  Triton Bay and  Ambon.

Banda Sea is generally welcoming divers who are prepared for a mix of wide-angle and macro subjects. Famous for biodiversity, divers passionate of photography should be prepared for various underwater opportunities as in one day we can experience dive sites ideal for wide-angle as well as macrophotography.

The highlight is without a doubt the migration of the Hammerhead Sharks. Our standard Banda Sea Liveaboard is Ambon-Ambon which takes us to the main dive sites such as Serua and Suanggi, where we have the highest chances to enjoy the large schooling of Hammerheads in Banda Sea.
