Diving & Cruising Liveaboard - Komodo islands, East Flores, Ring of Fire, Ambon and Banda
We are one of a very few liveaboard who travels from komodo islands, where boasts their ancient komodo dragon & marine parks, to East flores such as Maumere, Larantuka & Batu Tara (a volcanic island with beautiful underwater marine life) passing the ring of fire (the forgotten islands) to Banda islands & Ambon.
The crossing trips are your amazing way to enjoy the ultimate underwater beauty in this eastern Indonesia.
The most highlight of these areas are the sightings of schools of fifty to hundreds of hammerhead sharks in forgotten islands at the ring of fire. This are mostly found during September to October season.
In the Ambon and Saparua area, divers can find dive sites that are truly world class. Grey reef sharks, turtle, dozens of Napoleon Wrasse, including giant groupers, dogtooth tuna, black-spotted rays,barracuda, and lobsters you can find here.
Along with them, longfin bannerfish, black jacks, unicornfish, and lots of Thompson's surgeonfish. And also butterflyfish, angelfish, Moorish Idols, snappers, and rainbow runners. And some reported spotting the rare, lumbering dugongs here.
The northwest monsoon blows on and off from May through August, bringing occasional showers and rough seas for a few days. The southeast monsoon lasts from May through August, with long, heavy rains and wind-driven seas which can go on for weeks. But during this time, the north shores are still diveable. June is the area's wettest month averaging some 650 milimeters over 24 rainy days. Diurnal tides are between 2.2 and 2.3 meters. Usually (but not always) the fish life is best seen during the rising tide.
