You will also find healthy hard corals and beautiful drift dives. In the Forgotten Islands, Wetar, Roma, Damar and Nila, there are many drop-offs and black sand lagoons. Pelagic species abound here, as do rare species such as the Rhinopias, the Pygmy Seahorse or the Bobtail Squid. A region made for divers seeking adventure and exclusivity.
The uncrowded waters of Halmahera, Buru, Obi and Seram contain a disconcerting topography and a concentration of life beyond all expectation where the clouds of "sardine run" cross imposing banks of Mobula. Volcanoes, caves, dry, falling and black sand lagoons are the refuge of one of the most beautiful underwater kaleidoscopes that you will be able to observe: rare and famous macro-fauna in the Ambon region, barrel sponges and alcyonarians in quantity at Pulau Pisang, reef sharks and rays in the Strait of Pantiti, sumptuous corals at Pulau Goraici and Terumbu Gora.
