Kudanil Explorer crosses the Banda Sea

In September 2018, we welcomed our returning guests on a unique journey deep in the Eastern Indonesian archipelago. After disembarkation from Maumere / Flores, we cruised for over 800 nautical miles with finish in Ambon. The route led us via Alor and many tiny, remote islands in the Banda Sea to the colonial city, rich in history and culture.

Along the way, we enjoyed world-class dives and absolutely forgotten islands with villages where time stands still. We seeked and found Hammerhead sharks, Manta rays and plenty of rare underwater species. In-between dives, we tried our luck fly fishing and kissed the days goodbye with sunset drinks on the beach.

After twelve magnificent days on board, we finished this wonderful journey with an exploration of the Ambon Fort. Ambon is the capital of the Spice Islands which are famous for not only its richesse in Nutmeg but also a famous trade centuries ago. It is the land the Dutch colonists once traded with the British for a now famous place called Manhattan.
