Are you looking to dive with hammerhead sharks this year? The Banda Sea itinerary is one of the most sought after itineraries in Indonesia. The best time to cruise this area is during the month of October. This is the shoulder season when the sea is calm and the hammers are out in force. Historically, this itinerary is sold out as diving in the Banda Sea is a very popular itinerary. We expect these available spaces to be snapped up quickly, if you have interest please let us know A.S.A.P! These spaces don’t become available very often.
The dates for the trip are 17-28 October 2022 and the trip starts and ends in Ambon. Flights to Ambon are readily available and the easiest point of entry for connections is Jakarta. The price of the trip is USD $6270 per person in a twin/double share room plus $525 in Harbour and Park fees. We will be visiting all of the best spots in the area including the Snake Island of Manuk, historical Banda Neira, and the hammerhead hotspots along the other islands. This 11 night journey will focus on the best dives in the area (weather permitting) and we hope to swim with big schools of sharks.
Our boat for this trip is the wonderfully appointed Samambaia liveaboard. This phinisi boat has 7 rooms for maximum capacity of 14 people. Two tenders are used for diving so there is lots of room in the boats. The food is plentiful and tasty with a wonderful mix of international and Indonesian style dishes.
