Flores and Alor Straits on Banda Sea  | The Liveaboard BOOK NOW!

Remote and untouched the 18 volcanic islands of Alor and Solor group are considered one of the best diving destinations in Asia. Tourism does not existent and only few divers have explored these waters. One of the very last traditional whale hunter communities on the planet still lives in this magical archipelago. The waters around the islands are known for their strong currents; with each tide large water masses are pushed through the straits causing strong upwelling. The straits play an important role in the exchange of marine life between the Indian and Pacific Ocean. Each year whales and dolphins travel from the Pacific and Indian Ocean through the deep but narrow Nusa Tenggara island chain.

Diving in Alor Strait and Solor Island Group

These cruises will sail and dive the Alor Strait from north to south. You will spend memorable dive time in the islands of Pantar, Kumba, Ternate, Pura and the Bay of Kalabahi. The very clear and nutrient rich upwelling waters bring in pelagic: sun fish (mola-mola), reef sharks and sometime hammerhead sharks, sailfishes. Whales also frequently pass through the strait.

Walls, drop offs, boomies and pinnacles are incredible colourfully. One dive site has a bottom literally covered with anemones. In Alor critters can be encountered in colourful reef environment and in the black sand bays of Kalabahi and Biang. Tide induced currents are strong in the straits, so caution must be taken in choosing the dives sites. In the northern part water temperature is about 26 to 28°C, and in the south it can drop to 22°C, around Pura island and in Biang Bay. We will explore some rarely dived areas around the island of Twereg, and in the south of Alor and Pantar.

The children of Alor in their canoes, will delight the photographers, divers or not. On land we will visit a village where we will see traditional dances. In the bay of Biang, we will go ashore for a short trek on the slopes of the Sirung volcano. The second part of the cruise will be partially exploratory -we already tested and trusted some dive sites but are looking for discovering more-, visiting the South of Pantar islands and the straits between the islands of Pantar, Solor and Lembata. A visit to the Komba active volcano for a spectacular night show is on the schedule.

Diving Environment at Alor Strait

A few muck and critters dives in Alor Strait and Adonara Island. Encounters with frogfish, ghost pipefish, rhinopias and cepalopods are common diving in Alor. Most of the dives will however be on walls and slopes with a beautiful fixed fauna, numerous schools of fish and some pelagics. Eagle rays, tunas, giant trevally, school of spadefish, black and white tip sharks, pods of blackfish as a dolphins, pilote whales, false killer whales; and maybe orcas and big whales.

The visibility is expected to be very good all along this itinerary, about 30 meters and more.

Water Temperature

Sea temperature is about 28°C on most of the dives; in Alor Strait it is cooler, about 26 and less in the South part of the Strait where it can drop to 22°C.  A 5 mm long wetsuit and a hood are recommended for this diving trip.


The currents can be strong in Alor Strait; on other places we do not expect much current. We always try to avoid too strong currents, however this is not always possible and conditions can also change quickly. We recommend a consistent dive experience for this cruise.

Navigation & Itinerary

The itinerary varies slightly between each cruise depending on weather conditions, currents, visibility and suitability for diving activities.


The weather is generally dry and sunny with a refreshing breeze. The sea is flat within the strait, can be more choppy and welly in the southern part.
