Banda Sea – Forgotten Islands, Indonesia – Pindito Nov 22 – Dec 6, 2019

Join Berkley White and Erin Quigley on a very special trip crossing the Banda Sea aboard Pindito, with one of the most diverse itineraries in all of Indonesia. Located between Raja Ampat to the north and the Komodo islands to the south, the Banda Sea is an exciting outpost that offers some of the most unique diving adventures in the Indo-Pacific! RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW Beginning in Ambon Bay—one of Indonesia’s muckiest and best critter areas (also the only known home of the incredible psychedelic frogfish)—you will have the opportunity to check out your equipment and flex your macro muscles. You can see everything from tiny nudibranchs to giant frogfish, and countless critters in between. From there, it will be time to switch to wide angle and bask in the amazingness that is the beautiful Banda Sea. This special extended-itinerary will take you from the Spice Islands, through Eastern Indonesia (which has only recently been discovered to be home to numerous hammerhead cleaning stations and already well-known banded sea krait sites), finally finishing up in Alor with a little more muck diving, just to round out the trip. RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW This journey will take you to some well-known islands such as Saparua, Nusa Laut, Gunung Api, Gili Manuk, Nil Desperandum, as well as the lesser-known islands of Dai, Dawera and Serua which will offer wide angle shooters plenty of opportunities to capture the beauty of the hard and soft coral reefs, giant sponges, schooling fish, and—fingers crossed—schooling hammerheads. Not to mention huge napoleon wrasse, bumped parrotfish, and dozens of sea snakes. The deep blue water of the Banda Sea never ceases to amaze even the most experienced divers and photographers. Join Underexposures on this unique, special itinerary cruising the Forgotten Islands of Eastern Indonesia during the (historically) best season in the Banda Sea on one of the most experienced liveaboards, the Pindito.
