  1. Stopped in Ambon last October for a few days of diving after a LOB trip in the. Banda Sea. If you haven't dived Ambon it's well worth the stop as the macro life is wonderful and abundant. This was my second time visiting and diving with Critterjunkies. Here's the video of the underwater experience. Comments and critiques welcomed.
  2. Back in September I concluded a liveaboard tip to the Banda Sea with a stop over in Ambon before flying home. I got in 12 dives in 3 days with Critterjunkies by divebluemotion. The dive shop is pretty basic and located on the shores of Laha. And, like most parts of Indonesia, sanitation is not at levels we experience in the west. So, the rocky beach was covered in plastic as well areas beneath the water. However, many magical creatures make this area home. The water was warm enough for comfort in a 5mm wetsuit for long muck dives and viz varied from 30-50 feet, although on the last day, after a harsh rain, viz deteriorated to 2-3 feet! The top of the critter list was the psychedelic frogfish (PFF) and I didn't expect to actually see one. But, our guide had found one several days earlier and we got to see one on the second dive! There is competition amongst the dive guides and operators to find PFFs so when went to look for the PFF, our guide had one diver visit with the PFF while the others were off at a distance so other guides or boats couldn't figure out the location. It was like a secret mission. However, the PFF was in shallow water and the surge and particulate made for really difficult shooting conditions. Here's a video of what I encountered in 12 dives. Comments and critiques welcome.
  3. Ambon is rightly known for it's fantastic critter diving. It also has an amazing coral side, to the south and east, with astounding wide angle opportunities. Really lush and pristine reefs and recently we discovered an incredible underwater cave. These are Barb's wide angle photos from a day's diving last week. http://diveintoambon.com/wide-angle-gallery/

  5. Hi There, I have gotten around to uploading new galleries from my recent trip to Indonesia. The first part I have already posted under a differnet Topic Cenderawasih Whale Sharks. The following links are from Ambon, Bali and Raja Ampat. On my month long sojourn through Indonesia had me looking at Whale Sharks all the way down to Pigmy Seahorses and the like. I even managed to see a Mola Mola but unfortunately not close enough to get a decent photograph.
