Banda Sea

Banda Sea

Where is Banda Sea?

  • Banda Sea is located in the center of Maluku islands, surounded by hundreds of islands on one and Halmahera and Ceram seas on the other side.


  • It was well hidden from divers for some time. Its remoteness and low human population contributed to bursting underwater livelihood. Here you find extra vigorous, healthy reef systems. Two main characteristics that outline diving in this area are mobula rays and dogtooth tuna. There is plenty to see under water, for example large schools of fusilier and plenty of redtooth trigger fish, mandarin fish, native Ambon scorpion fish, and so many more.

Where is Komodo?

  • Komodo, also belonging to the Lesser Sunda chain, lies between the islands of Sumba and Flores. Komodo, Rinca and Padar are the three main islands that along with numerous smaller ones form Komodo Marine Park. A Combination of many small islands and relatively shallow seas between Flores and the west coast of Komodo create ideal conditions for diving in swift currents at tidal changes.
  • The island is also famous for its Komodo dragon monitor lizard, the largest lizard in the world. An alert and agile predator and scavenger that can reach 2.5 meters in length and 125 kg. Nowadays more than a thousand inhabit the island and about half that number that live on nearby Rinca Island.


  • Komodo diving can easily be categorized as being one of the world’s best dive destinations. It is one of the most diverse and rich marine environments in the world and has two totally different marine environments. The north side offers clear warm waters flowing from the Flores and Banda seas. Underwater is stunning with vibrant colors, diverse exotic fish life, exceptionally healthy corals, reefs crammed with invertebrates and packed with reef fish. Current-swept deep cool water sea mounts, walls and pinnacles are patrolled by sharks, tuna and other big fish. The south plankton rich waters (making visibility ‘slightly reduced) host eagle rays, manta rays, sunfish and abundant fish life as well as macro life and critters such as leaf fish, frogfish, sea apples, pygmy seahorses, a variety of ghost pipefish, many different nudibranches, and much more.
