Welcome to our dive center in Ambon
Our Dive Center Critterjunkies is located in the bay of Ambon, directly on the waterfront in Laha. Ambon bay is still a secret spot and an outstanding area for muck diving. Three of the best muck dive sites anywhere in the world are immediately in front of our terrace. You only need travel a few minutes from the airport and take a few steps into the water to access a world of rare creatures: rhinopia, frogfish, nudibranch, mimic octopus and more.
Ambon is a paradise for lovers of marine life and an Eldorado for underwater photographers. You can find an almost endless number of rare (and sometimes crazy!) animals. Within the Bay, extraordinary dive sites, including wrecks, can be reached in only 3-20 minutes by boat. Night dives are breathtaking; and every dive promises a huge quantity and variety of exciting creatures. Around the island are coral covered caves, reefs and walls full of marine life. Many areas have barely been explored for diving. If you’d like some extra adventure, you´re welcome to discover new dive sites with us.Between dives you are always welcome to relax at the dive shop.
Ambon is a perfect location to continue your trip and visit some other remote islands in the area. You can plan a combined dive tour between Ambon and the renowned Banda Islands. Dive Bluemotion on Banda Neira offers access to rarely visited areas of stunning corals and outstanding marine life in crystal clear water. If you arrive at the right time, you also have a good chance to see big fish.
