The Banda Sea will treat divers to an explosion of marine life on the pristine reefs, as well as steep drop-offs, huge schools of fish, a plethora of pelagic species, sea mounts and critters galore. The Banda Sea is covers a huge area in the Eastern part of Indonesia and include some of the archipelagos most remote islands.
Banda Sea, with its spice islands, played an important role in history during the 15th to 17th century. For centuries the indigenous people traded with nutmeg and thus came into focus of the Europeans, because this special seasoning was found only on these islands.
The islands were first colonized by the Portuguese before the Dutch took over the colony in fierce fighting. Meanwhile, the islands are again visited by sailors, fishermen and divers, especially due to the extraordinary amount of fish. Many remains of the colonies are still visible, so this area is especially exciting to visit
Nusa Laut. Varied reef scapes with beautiful coral gardens and loads of fish. Schools of surgeon fish, big eye jacks, and a variety of reef fish including barracudas sweeten the dive. With some luck you can even see hammerhead sharks. Another highlight is the night dive under the pier, where we "hunt" critters. Angler fish, scorpion fish, pipe fish and many other creatures are on display.
Banda Neira is the main island of "Banda Islands", which are part of the Maluku archipelago. The "Banda Islands" consists of 10 small volcanic islands. Visit the old fortress of the Dutchman on Banda Neira, or climb a volcano is part of our program. Over 20 years ago lava flowed into the sea and formed a hard coral garden which is amazing!
