Banda Sea (Maluku) Liveaboard Boats

The Banda Sea stretches from Alor to the coast of West Papua. A string of islands in the south Maluku archipelago forms the southern border of the sea. Like Nusa Tenggara, these islands are part of the seismically active 'Ring of Fire.' The Banda Islands, formerly known as the Spice Islands, are in the central Banda Sea. Diving in the remote Banda Sea is possible only by liveaboard. The route to and from West Papua is convenient for sailing and diving along the way. Stopovers at Wetar Island, the Damar, Banda and Lucipara Islands, and Koon Island off the coast of Seram, guarantee a pristine diving experience. This little-visited area has some of the world's richest reefs bursting with unspoiled corals and pelagic fishes.
