Route Options

11 nights

Starting with muck dives, crossing the Banda Sea, and tracing the perimeter of islands. Let our experienced crew show you those almost untouched locations with wonderful reefs and stunning drop-offs. Marine life is in abundance from critters, sea snakes, manta rays, sharks and school of hammerhead and much more. Frequently, whales might be spotted from the surface. You will also be able to spot the rare Mandarin Fish around Banda Neira, performing their mating ritual at night.

The landscape and coral islands alternate with rock formation covered with a green layer, giving our passage from Asia to Oceania an almost unreal magic. We refer here to biological borders that sometimes are quite different from geographical borders. The dry season starts in this region in September and goes until end of March; however, rainfall can be expected throughout the year.

Aurora sails around several islands, such as Ambon, Nusa Laut, Molana, Banda Neira, Manuk, Damar and Saumlaki. This cruise is offered from Ambon to Saumlaki or from Saumlaki to Ambon and includes 11 nights, we will overnight almost every day in a different bay.

The reefs on this cruise are all very beautiful. We will come across both sloping reefs and vertical walls. We will also see and dive around coral drop-offs and coral reefs with deep laying coral walls.

A journey leading us through two oceans, separating, and uniting here at the same time. A current constantly crosses Indonesia, flowing from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean. Due to trade winds, the oceans have a different sea level of about 2 inches.... As the Pacific mixes with the colder Indian Ocean, at the south of the Lesser Sunda Islands, we find Pacific fauna scattered to the north and in-between the islands.

THE LANDSCAPE During June and September, the landscape above the water is unusually dry for Indonesia. On the islands east of Bali rainfalls are rare during the dry season, and the landscape that elsewhere in Indonesia is green all year round, shows here some green and brown patches.

THE ITINERATING ROUTE Aurora sails around the different islands, and we stop to sleep almost every evening in a different bay.

THE WATERS Warm (27-29º C) and calm water, extemeley rich and diverse reefs and large colonies of hard coral charachterize the pacific side. Rich fishbanks (barracudas and carangidi) patrol the reef expecially in the canals between the islands, and when the sea tide rises (expecially during the time between june and september) the intensity of the current can be noteworthy.

THE SOUTHERN COAST OF THE INDIAN OCEAN The southern coast of the Indian Ocean, however, is characterized by colder water temperatures (24ºC -25º C/ /75-77ºF), locally with high waves. The reefs is shallower water are rich in soft corals and hard corals with incrusted forms, very resistant to the strong water movement. In the waters with reduced visibility, encounters with pelagic fish such as sharks, manta rays or the rare moon fish (Mola mola) are quite often.

THE NORTHERN SIDE The reefs on the northern side of Komodo and Rinca and the Lesser Sunda Islands belong to the most versatile reefs in the whole archipelago. Magnificently conserved, rich of big formation of Acropora (table corals). Uncountable reef fish and invertebrates make this underwater landscape very interesting.

THE REEFS The reefs around Komodo are mainly fringing reefs, with a rather narrow reef platform close to the shore while the outer reef descends quite steeply. In the deeper water prevail by fan corals, along with black corals and big sponges.

11 Nights

Day 1: Ambon Our staff will pick up at the airport and bring you to Aurora for immediate boarding. As soon as all the guests are on board, we will lift the anchor and sail to our first destination.

Day 2: Nusa Laut and Sarapurana Nusa Laut has spectacular reefs and wonderful coral gardens. Schools of surgeonfish, big eye trevallies and plenty of reef fish can be found here. For the night dive we will be critter hunting under a pier. The island of Saparua is a great alternative in case the weather conditions are not fine.

Day 3-4: Banda Neira outer reefs The waters here are full of fish, reef sharks and tuna. As a small bonus for bird lovers, many species can be observed around the island: brown boobies, red-footed boobies and frigate birds. Pulau hatta / Karang hatta: We will dive both sloping reefs and vertical walls. The current attracts many fish: fusiliers, dogtooth tuna, eagle rays, barracudas and sometimes sharks. On the reef, soft corals, leather corals, big eye trevallies and turtles.

Day 5: Koon The small island of Koon has a vertical wall and a slope where the current curls, pushing schools of trevallies, batfish and barracuda in. Reef sharks are common, but the stars of the show are the giant groupers, the largest of which reaches a size of 3m! Quite exciting dives!

Day 6-8: Misool National Park So many Islands to visit and so many different dive spots. We will cruise around JILLIET, FIABAJET, WALIB, WAJIL, JEF PELE, MESENTA, BOO etc... The Aurora Crew will assure you as many dives as possible to completely appreciate this wonderful and beautiful area.

Day 9: Farondi Farondi Islands, about 20km east of Misool, are a popular destination for divers because of the unique seascape: tunnels, caverns and diving to colourful walls. Day 10: Fam Island The Fam Island is the definition of paradise. A combination of stunning landscapes, marvellous coral gardens and an exceptionally rich marine biodiversity.

Day 11: Arborek Here we will have the chance to visit a typical fishermen village, but the morning will be dedicated to spot Manta rays, Wobbegong sharks and much more.

Day 12: Sorong After a nice breakfast on board, our Aurora crew will organize, according to your flight schedules, your transfer to the airport of Sorong.

Unfortunately our trip will arrive at an end and we have to say goodbye but we hope to see you again on board.

Aurora sails around several islands, like Gunung Api, Lucipara, and the islets around Banda, until the waters of Ambon. We will overnight almost every day in a different bay.



Around and in the middle of the Banda sea, the crests of the submerged pinnacles are surrounded by a magnificent reef, at times very rich of hard corals.

Raja Ampat dive trips cruise the West Papua province of Indonesia which encompasses 1,500 small islands, cays and shoals surrounding the four main islands of Waigei, Batanta, Salawati and Misool. The itinerary can include Misool National Park, Dampier Strait, Penemu, Farondi and Arborek depending on length of the trip.

The remote nature of these islands has protected the marine life and maintained their status as the world’s most biodiverse and healthy reefs. Raja Ampat is home to over 1,500 species of fish, 500 species of coral and 15 species of marine mammals. Raja Ampat is a scuba diver’s dreamland where divers can hope to see manta rays, pygmy seahorses, wobbegong sharks and a rainbow of colors along the coral gardens.
