Diving in the Banda Sea offers some of the most unique diving adventures to be found in Indonesia. Located between the much publicized Raja Ampat islands to the north and the venerable Komodo National Park to the south, this exciting outpost has distinct volcanic islands and sea mounts which rise from the depths offering superb wall diving and boundless marine life.
Banda Sea liveaboard trips visit the historically significant island of Banda Neira, once the center of the Dutch/Portuguese Spice Trade dating back to the early 1600s, now a virtually inaccessible outpost of Indonesia offering amazing macro subjects and encounters with the rare mandarin fish demonstrating their lively mating rituals. A jewel in the crown of the Banda Sea lies further south at Pulau Manuk where seas are populated by hundreds of sea snakes. Dive Nusa Laut for both an example of healthy coral reef and a chance to see hammerhead sharks.
