The seas of the Moluccas (Maluku) in Eastern Indonesia have pristine waters and some of the greatest variety of marine life on the planet. On our 12 day voyage from Ambon to Banda to Ternate the Ombak Putih will usually find a suitable site for snorkelling and underwater exploration every day.
Here is an image of one of the members of our Spice Routes/Spice Wars 2014 sailing adventure with the Ombak Putih in the background.
Thanks to Randall Rutledge for the use of his underwater photographs taken on our 2014 Spice Routes/Spice Wars voyage and here are some examples of the clarity of the water and the variety of beautiful tropical fish.
