BlueRoseDivers - Dive Center Ambon Reviews
Recommended dive center in Ambon, Indonesia Aug 21, 2010
Ambon as a dive destination in the east of Indonesia, had been mostly a stopover place for diver going to Raja Ampat, Papua.
However, the dive quality in Ambon is totally not bad, and with the easy and friendly logistical issue, cost effective, Ambon is really worth considering!
Ambon is one flight away from Jakarta, about 3.5hours and cost about $200 for round trip ticket (lower with more budget airline and better planning).
And the dive center is 1 hour away from the airport, in which they can help arranging the pick-up transport.
So we went to Ambon for couple of days, it was not the best season of the year though, but what can we say, timing is not our best liberation as a blue collar person.
Best season for Ambon is between October to May, where the sky is clear, the sea is calm, and water is like a glass walls, visibility could go up to 30-40m, so they said.
There are a few dive center around Ambon, 3 to be exact, and this one we went was great! They have the most air tanks on the island, and the best boats (yes, 2 boats!).
Recommended dive sites: Laha (muck dive), Pintu Kota, and Pulau Tiga. They really know their way around with the sites, there are at least 30 dive sites around the area, and you need only to tell them what is your interest.
Dove with BlueRoseDivers, it cost about $100/day for 3 dives package, and about $80/day for 2 dives package.
The more people, will get more discount as the lower fuel cost of the boat.
I just realized that those kind of boat is really a fuel eater machine!
Next to the dive center, is a humble local villa, built and operated by the local people. It's pretty clean, with an aircon, spring bed and western style toilet. It cost $30/day per room, and it can fit max 3-4 people.
It's usually a BBQ night during the stay on the villa, complementing the fresh seafood Ambon offers.
Have yourself some good diving experience in Ambon, Eastern Indonesia !
