Procedure & diving areas
The Northern Moluccas guarantee unique dives because the area has a sensational biodiversity. During almost every dive you will encounter several black tip sharks, and sometimes gray and white tip sharks on steep walls with lots of currents. The nearby Manta Spot, where there are even black manta rays, is visited regularly. Turtles, mackerel and buffalo-head parrotfish can also be seen at the diving spots. An absolute specialty is the endemic and rare Halmahara Walking Shark, which walks over the reef, especially during night dives. Colorful coral gardens in bright colors and densely overgrown steep walls offer impressive photo opportunities. There are huge intact hard corals, colorful sponges and numerous fan corals. But that’s not all: Macro lovers will also be delighted, because the reefs offer tons of macro highlights. With the help of the experienced dive guides you can discover pygmy seahorses, frogfish, ghost pipefish, rare nudibranchs, leaf fish, various octopuses as well as harlequin and boxer shrimp. You shouldn’t miss the dive by minibus to the Magic Jetty. Directly under the jetty on the other side of the island, the bizarre bobbit worm and the rare fringed scorpionfish (Rhinopias) are at home in the sandy bottom. And another highlight is worth mentioning: During the dives you hardly ever see other divers, as the area is hardly developed for tourists.
