Undeveloped and off the beaten path, liveaboard diving in Indonesia’s Forgotten Islands is like discovering a new paradise. Healthy corals lead to astounding biodiversity at uncrowded dive sites.
The Forgotten Islands are a chain of islands in the Moluccas which extend over 620 miles (1,000km). Surrounding this distant destination, you’ll find crystal clear waters filled with healthy coral reefs and some spectacular wall dives. Diving here is still a new idea, but the region seems to be home to rare macro creatures, pilot whales and even a few whale sharks. As an added bonus, you’re likely to have most dive sites to yourself. Undeveloped and off the beaten path, the Forgotten Islands can only realistically be dived from a liveaboard. Typical itineraries in this part of the Moluccas last 7 to 10 nights, and the best time to dive here is from March to April and September to December.
