This is the first part of a documentary of a Banda Sea trip I did in 2011. We started in Ambon, visited the Banda islands and crossed the Banda Sea passing the Penyu- and Lucipara Islands. We also visited Gunung Api with its many sea snakes. From Wetar we continued our trip further west, visited Alor and eventually left our ship - M/V Amira - in Maumere.
In retrospect a once-in-a-lifetime-trip which can only be done when conditions are right. We were lucky and enjoyed perfect weather, a calm Banda Sea and excellent visibillity.
