Back in August (with free equipment rental!)

Almost one month since this season came to an end, and people here at Bluemotion are already looking forward to diving again in August, when the upwelling fills the Banda Sea with nutrients and attracts all kinds of  marine life.

Have we mentioned equipment rental is free of charge in August? Well, it is. Come spend your August holidays with us! :)
