Banda Sea – Ring of Fire

The Ring of Fire – Banda Sea Liveaboard trip with Mermaid I or II is the ultimate scuba diving adventure. Ring of Fire is a remote arc of islands in the Banda Sea, they are isolated even by Indonesian standards. This archipelago chain in the east of Indonesia, stretches from Timor in the southwest to West Papua in the northeast.

Volcanic islands rise out of the deep blue waters and vast seamounts are home to schooling hammerhead sharks. Uninhabited islands are fringed by untouched reefs. Underwater pinnacles are so isolated that the reefs are immaculate. All dive sites are packed full of fish life. And some are visited by large pelagics.

Giant barrel sponges and gigantic sea fans line the deep walls. Visibility is almost always crystal clear, with warm water. The diving offers large schools of fish and beautiful corals. The Ring of Fire can only be reached by liveaboard. So, contact us to book your next adventure today!
