Raja Manta 10-17th March Raja Ampat trip.

March is arguably when Raja Ampat’s marine life really peaks. This time of year can bring some quite heavy plankton blooms but this plankton along with the strong currents & upwellings that feed the area are the lifeblood of Raja Ampat and one of the main reasons it is so very rich in marine life & bio-diversity. These conditions also encourage plenty of big fish & marine megastars!

Blue Manta's Banda Sea finale 2016

Blue Manta trip BLAMRA1 6 -17th November; from Ambon through the Banda Sea and Ring of fire and on to the world famous Raja Ampat.

Blue Manta in the Ring of Fire

Bluemanta is cruising all year round in the beautiful seas of the indonesian archipelago, but no other route gives a sense of adventure and discovery as much as our CROSSING trips in the vast and deep BANDA SEA.

Hammertime onboard the Raja Manta

It’s that time of year again, Hammertime! Every year as the Komodo season comes to an end the thoughts and dreams of our guests and crew turn to the allure of the magical, remote and beautiful Banda Sea. Filled with highlights both above and below the waves, guests from all over the world come to enjoy amazing sunsets, stunning Volcanic islands, clear blue waters, thriving coral reefs, diverse marine life and, of course, the chance to encounter huge schools of scalloped hammerheads which can be found in these waters in massive numbers. Over the last few seasons we have had great success in locating the hammers, but of course nothing in nature is guaranteed and so as the first Banda sea trip of the season begun, one question hung in the air… would we enjoy a spectacular “hammertime?” This year, for the first time, the trip would be onboard our KM Raja Manta (previously the White Manta) – recently renamed and relocated to Indonesia this would be her maiden voyage – and so hopes were high for a spectacular trip.

From the very first day, welcoming our guests onboard the beautiful KM Blue Manta, it was clear that anticipation levels were high amongst dive staff and guests alike! Everyone was excitied to be embarking upon a true diving trip of a life time. Diving and wish list sightings dominated every conversation as all thoughts of the real world receeded and thoughts turned only to what mysteries the blue would reveal on this special crossing trip from Sorong to Saumlaki exploring the remote and exotic 'Forgotten Islands.'
