We are the first land based dive center in the Banda Islands, a group of 11 dreamy islands in the middle of the Banda Sea. Located at the seafront in Banda Neira, we are only a short speedboat ride away from a wide variety of unique dive sites teeming with fish, including breathtaking pinnacles, deep walls with beautiful swim-throughs and tightly coral covered slopes. All these different underwater topographies together with amazing visibility (50+ metres is quite common in certain times of the year) make these remote volcanic islands an ideal destination to dive in world-class sites far away from the crowds -you will literally have the dive sites for yourself and your group. Our dive center is managed by the German dive instructor, Tuta, whose intention is to generate a friendly and familiar atmosphere so that you are not only enjoying your dive experience in Banda but also the vibes of the islands. Diving with us means extended surface intervals with a picnic composed of local food, coffee and tea on one of the Banda islands' beautiful beaches. During your stay on Banda, you are also very welcome to hang out in the dive center for a chat or to have a closer look at our underwater library and species identification books. We speak German, English, Spanish and French, and can offer Open Water, Advanced and other courses (SSI) in German and English. Our friendly staff is a mix of European and Indonesian professionals that follow the highest safety standards and our equipment is new (Aqualung BCDs and Apeks regulators) and well serviced. You can find us next to the Hotel Maulana. Coming from Banda's main pier, turn left, walk 50 m along the road and the dive center will appear on your left-hand side. If you visit us just before sunset, you can observe the famous Mandarin fish in front of the dive center. Diving with us means you can plan a combined dive tour between Banda Islands and Ambon. Our dive center in Ambon offers access to an outstanding muck diving area with a great variety of critters to spot.
