In Topic: Underwater Video Species Guide To Ambon Bay, Indonesia

Hey George - Thanks for taking the time to check it out!  My husband shot all the video for this one while I shot stills, so he gets the credit! :) He shot this originally at 4k with a Sony AX100 in a Gates housing.  We lived in Ambon for about a month last winter and spent about 5 or 6 hours a day underwater. Happy to answer any other questions if you have them...

All the best,

Certainly nothing wrong with using a local travel agent - that is often much less of a hassle! :) Only downside is that travel agents typically tack on a fee, so depending on time and budget, the travel websites can be useful too.

Have you thought about swimming with whale sharks in Papua? This is a little bit of a project to get to but well worth it.  Here is a write up on how to do it and budget options...




Good luck!

I've spent a fair bit of time in Cenderawasih Bay, in West Papua and my husband and I just finished a blog post with a comprehensive guide to swimming/diving with whale sharks in the Nabire area (we have always had a heck of a time finding any good info online about Nabire and the whale sharks and thought this might be useful to underwater photographers).  We have always been on a strict budget so have included recommendations for other folks trying to do this as affordably as possible.  Hope this helps!
