Banda Sea

The Spice Islands - macro and megafauna expedition 
21st to 28th October 2024 

Embark on an unforgettable journey with Expedition Biru this October as we set sail for the mystical Banda Sea, a realm steeped in history and teeming with natural wonders. Prepare to be captivated by the allure of the Spice Islands, once the epicenter of the European spice trade where cloves and black pepper reigned supreme, valued even above gold.


Venturing into this remote paradise, we'll delve into the vibrant tapestry of its cultural heritage, uncovering the tales of intrepid explorers and ancient civilizations that have left their mark on these secluded shores. From the bustling markets to the tranquil villages, each island holds its own secrets waiting to be discovered.


But our journey doesn't end on land – it's just the beginning of our aquatic odyssey. Plunge into the depths of the Banda Sea, where a kaleidoscope of marine life awaits. From the tiniest macro creatures to the majestic hammerhead sharks, we'll traverse the entire spectrum of underwater marvels. Muck diving addicts will revel in the chance to encounter ornate ghost pipefish and elusive frogfish, while thrill-seekers will be on the lookout for the iconic scalloped hammerheads that grace these remote waters.


In an era where shark sightings have become increasingly rare, the Banda Sea stands as a beacon of hope, a stronghold where these magnificent creatures still roam freely. As stewards of the ocean, we'll shed light on the pressing issues threatening their survival, from overfishing to the insidious shark fin trade, empowering our guests to become ambassadors for marine conservation.


What sets our expedition apart is our commitment to sustainability and local empowerment. We've teamed up with experienced guides from the region, ensuring that every dive is led by those who know these waters like the back of their hand. By supporting local communities and investing in their expertise, we're not only enhancing your experience but also creating opportunities for economic growth and cultural exchange.


Our mission to make a positive impact beyond the waves. A portion of our funds will be dedicated to training women in West Papua to become dive guides, nurturing a new generation of ocean stewards and guardians. Through education and empowerment, we're building a brighter future for both people and planet.


Led by experienced guides Iris and Wendy, our expedition promises not only exhilarating dives and breathtaking sights but also enriching lectures on cultural history and marine conservation. Whether you're a seasoned diver or a curious explorer, join us aboard our traditional Indonesian penisi liveaboard for an immersive experience like no other. With only 10 spaces left, secure your spot now and embark on a journey of discovery in the heart of the Banda Sea.
