Cheap and awesome macro diving in Ambon

 

Ambon harbourI had a good experience diving with Blue Motion Ambon in February 2016.

They are based in Ambon bay. It means the access is super easy from the airport: about half an hour !

Ambon is a paradise for macro diving: rhinopias, frogfish, seahorses, harlequin shrimps, orang utang¬†crabs, ghostpipe fish…

Blue motion is quite cheap: I paid 280,000Rp per dive (9 dives), 200,000 per day for the gear including a torch and 25,000 as local tax.

As a consequence, expect to do a few shore dives but if you stay only 3 days like I did it doesn’t really matter, especially if you go for some night dives.

Quite few options for food a drink near the dive center. Blue motion can book you an accomodation near the dive center if you need.

At the end of the day, the harbour becomes a playground for kids.

Also do not hesite to go walk in the village a few hundred meters away.
