Bigass Indonesia Group Trip Report - Ambon, Bali & The Banda Sea

05 February 2009 - 09:20 AM

This is a big, group effort trip report from a fantastic trip to Indonesia. The report covers the Archipelago Adventurer II live-aboard (Banda Sea Itinerary), Scuba Seraya Dive Resort on Bali, and Maluku Dive Resort on Ambon. As a group, we covered resort and dive operator reviews, lots of details and stories about the diving we did, literally hundreds of pictures contributed by the many photographers on the trip, some awesome video clips, plus some tips for traveling in Indonesia.

We hope you enjoy, and that the report will be helpful to anyone planning to travel to this part of the world.

Da Junk on The Junk

I thought I would share a Thailand trip report I put together after a two week stay in Thailand in late 2007/early 2008, during which we did a one week liveaboard to Similans/Richelieu/Surins on the Junk, plus dove Phi Phi on a two day excursion out of Phuket.

It's a behemoth report - so grab a cuppa before you settle in, and feel free to skip ahead through the flight from hell saga to the diving bits ;^)

I have been lurking in this fine forum awhile. I have been a regular contributor over at Scubadiving.com for several years, but thought I would expand my horizons a bit and play here too.

I am another cold water junkie - fortunate enough to live only a few hours from the wild & wonderful diving at Nanaimo, Campbell River and Port Hardy. However, even a hardy West Coast Canuckian kind of chick needs a warm fix every now and then, so I regularly strain/drain the bank account with adventures afar.

I've met a few of the regulars here (most recently the ever-entertaining Simon Buxton, who DM'd a recent trip aboard the Archipelago Adventurer II from Ambon to Banda) and recognize quite a few names.

My (non-commercial) website is Awoosh.com. I enjoy sharing my experiences via multiimedia shows and photoessays, so if armchair diving is your bag, hopefully you will find something there to entertain you a bit.
