Banda Sea Liveaboard in Spices islands
Known as BANDA ISLANDS Moluku or Spices Islands
Known as The Spice Islands (Maluku), Banda’s tiny volcanic island is truly a blessing for all divers. It’s offering an abundant healthy reef with an incredible number of fishes, gorgonians, and giant hard coral tables. The Moluccas lie in the eastern half of Indonesia between Sulawesi and West Papua. The Banda Islands are a volcanic group of ten small volcanic islands in the Banda Sea and are sensational.
The key attractions, in the Banda sea, are plenty of pelagic, intense muck diving, the world’s largest population of Napoleon wrasse, and a very rich cultural heritage on land from colonial times. There is nowhere better in Indonesia for spotting large pelagic fish and sharks.
Islands are isolated because of their remote location and the tumultuous seas. Crystal clear waters, deep drop-offs, colorful coral pinnacles, and schooling of hammerhead sharks are present in this liveaboard trip. After you first dive with Vaiatea Liveaboard, you will experience something special in Banda.
The Banda Islands were famous as a source of spices, especially nutmeg native to the Moluccas and the Spice Islands. There is no tourist economy, so fishing and nutmeg are the only two industries that the Bandas have. Nutmeg is a gigantic evergreen tree, native to the Moluccas – the Spice Islands.
Discovering Banda with Vaiatea Liveaboard is a mix of diving, culture, and relaxation with islands, atolls, spectacular beaches, abundant marine life, and schools of hammerhead.
