Join Ikelite Ambassador Grant Thomas aboard the Calico Jack Liveaboard in the Banda Sea. This region is in the heart of the Indonesian archipelago and is known for its vibrant marine life, healthy reefs, and pelagic fish - most notably large schools of hammerhead sharks! You'll also see unique critters like the Olive Sea Snake which are famous in the Banda Sea Islands. 

Divers can expect 2-4 dives per day including:

  • Reef dives
  • Drift dives
  • Shark dives
  • Manta dives
  • Night dives
  • Free nitrox

Macro divers looking to extend their trip can register for the 3-5 day Ambon Muck Diving extension. This area is notable for its regular sightings of blue-ring, mototi, and wonderpus octopuses as well as the Psychedelic Frogfish.
