About Ambon

Ambon is a horseshoe shaped island, with Ambon Bay reaching about 20 miles into the centre, surrounded by a tropical landscape of lush green hills. The regional capital, Kota Ambon, is on the other side of the bay about 30 minutes from Bluemotion. Although travellers often pass through Ambon while visiting Maluku, tourism isn´t yet highly developed. Staying a while in this area gives you the chance to discover 'authentic Indonesia'.

Apart from the incredible diving, many other activities are available. We can organize a car with a driver and/or tour guide for sightseeing. You can spend the day at the beach, snorkeling and sunbathing, soak in a hot tub, visit one of Kota Ambon’s unique coffeehouses, or just wander around friendly, bustling markets and colourful streets. Local adventures include a visit to the lafresh water eels in Larike, which are harmless and so tame they swim into your hands. If you are interested in jungle trips, a guide can help you find exotic birds and amazing butterflies. Many idyllically remote and untouched islands are in easy reach.

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.
