Banda Adventure

Karte Tour Banda Adventure

Description
This tour is known to include one of the best dive spots between the Moluccas and Raja Ampat. Muck diving in Ambon, diving among the history-rich Banda islands, as well as the coral reefs and micro organisms in Misool make this extensive tour a real adventure.

Ambon has the reputation to be one of the most fascinating muck diving destinations; it additionally offers beautiful reef diving. On dive sites such as Air Manis and Laha one can always find a large number of exceptional and rare ocean creatures. In Paila Tiga there are beautiful reefs and plenty of fish life.

The ensuing destination to be visited on this tour is among the Nusa Laut islands. Here one can find an abundance of various types of fish, strong currents and fascinating under water habitats. Even for spoilt divers, this is a rare treat.

Over many hundred years, the Banda islands were a place of bitter fighting associated with the rights and privileges of the at that time highly lucrative nutmeg trade. Nowadays only few people remember the bloody wars of past times. The real richness and beauty of these islands is now the magnificent marine life.

One of the best Mandarin fish dives within the Banda Islands is a Lava stream with fast growing corals and fascinating under water landscapes with an abundance of fish life to be seen. After an extensive ocean crossing the Amira will reach one of the best dive sites of Raja Ampat. Around the island of Misool guests can expect to see a wealth of different fish life, beautiful reefs, extensive macro organisms, sharks and wobegongs, as well as dives in strong currents. Dive sites such as Fiabacet and the Gorgonian passage make every diver’s heart beat a little faster. Having the highest biodiversity overall this exceptional dive site has garnered worldwide fame and accolades. Naturally we also offer the possibility to do a short excursion on land to take in the historic forts build under Dutch occupation during the time of the nutmeg trade.
