Bama

Bama is an unbelievable wall discovered by the P’tite Kepa Dive Center. An absolute treat on Alor Island in Indonesia for advanced level divers! Here we have overhangs, terraces, crevices, and caves all covered with a rich and beautiful biodiversity. Just nothing but amazing colors coming from corals, sponges, tubastrea, gorgonians, and a good plethora of reef fish. Not to mention, there is a rich “macro” life too: nudibranchs, flatworms, shrimp, Bargibant’s seahorses (or pygmy seahorse), and the Dendronephthya (or candy crab) and xenocarcinus tuberculatus (or whip coral spidercrab) crabs. Humphead parrotfish and Napoleon wrasse also swim in these waters.
