Maluku, the last frontier

Ternate
Halmahera
Seram
Ambon
Banda


Maluku which comprises the islands between Sulawesi and West Papua is formerly known as the Spice Islands. It was once the source of cloves and nutmeg, spices highly valued for their aroma, preservative ability and use in medicine before people learned how to cultivate the plants in other parts of the world.
That’s why this region played such a crucial role in 16th and 17th century European history. Many sites of great historical interest such as fortresses can be seen today while sailing in this archipelago.

The region is divided into two provinces, South Maluku with its capital in Ambon, and North Maluku, with its capital in Ternate.
Some of the islands are volcanic and dressed in luxuriant tropical
vegetation. Others are coral atolls, lined with swaying palm trees.
They are all beautiful and blessed with some of the finest beaches in the world.

Untouched, virgin coral reefs

If you want to experience the true vastness of the ocean, world-class diving and take home a piece of history with you, a live aboard expedition to Maluku is hard to beat.

The Banda Sea is a deep sea ringed by islands in Eastern Indonesia. Right in the middle of the sea are the Banda Islands which were the centre of the bloody spice wars that lasted from the early 1600s until 1810.
Few areas in the world rival the waters of the Banda Sea for its walls covered with massive growths of corals that have survived centuries of waves and strong currents.
Everything about diving those atolls is epic in scale, from the remoteness of its location to the pelagic action that waits below the surface. You are never quite sure what you might see on a dive: mobula rays or hammerhead sharks are frequently spotted.

Ambon is one of Asia’s finest muck-diving spots. In this large bay, you can find the endemic Ambon Scorpion fish, Ghost Pipefish, Seahorses, Frogfish and many more fascinating critters for macro-lovers to search for.
The beautiful wreck of the Duke of Sparta lies also in Ambon bay between 15m and 40m deep.
This 134 m long Dutch cargo ship which was sunk in 1958 by an American aircraft is now home to many colourful reef fish and beautiful coral formations.
Several sites on the south coast of Ambon offer some of the prettiest dives in the Maluku.
Just a short distance from Ambon, the islands of Ela, Hatala and Lain have beautiful corals and excellent reef life.

Halmahera is still a new dive destination to be explored.
New reefs with stunning fish life and coral gardens have been discovered in the south- west of the island.
The ridges around Bacan Island in the strait of Patinti, the dramatic reef scenery of Tidore Island, the brilliant hard coral formations of the Goraici islands, superb visibility, large schools of fish, pelagic sharks and amazing macro will make this area soon become a hot dive destination in Indonesia.
