Apr 27th, 2016: Bluemotion Banda will remain open all 2016.

We will be operating in June-July this year, -with limited capacity, as there will be less staff, and the sites we will be able to dive will depend more on the weather. On the other hand, it will be much quieter -more of a familiar atmosphere :) Also, equipment in Bluemotion Banda is free of charge in June, July and August.

Actually we opened towards the end of January, so by now we already know we are having some amazing visibility around Banda. We hope to see you here for some unforgettable diving!
