Dec 21st, 2017: Closing until 1st February (fast ferry suspended temporarily)

The fast ferry has been suspended as of 20th of December until further notice. Flights stopped in November and the only options left are the Pelni ships and the occasional cargo boats. For that reason we are closing Bluemotion Banda until February 1st, 2017, when transportation should be back to normal. Happy Holidays from the Bluemotion team!

Oct 9th, 2016: Old laptops needed for children's computer lab on Banda

We have supported the re-opening of a computer lab on Banda. The lab was setup more than a year ago supported by a social fund but had to close a few months ago as the operational costs couldn't be covered. It was now revived thanks to our volunteer teacher Masha. Children come there every afternoon to learn about computers, Mathematics and English. The interest and feedback has been very positive but, unfortunately, only 3 computers are functioning and available for more than 30 children. If you are going to visit us for diving and have an old laptop you don't need anymore, we would be very thankful if you could donate it to the lab.
