This is an awesome itinerary! The boat starts in Maumere and ends in Kupang. This area is a constant source of marine life surprises with a wealth of small critters to big fish and mammals. There are a wide variety of dive sites from muck dives in the bays of Beangabang and Kalabahi to the always fishy Alor Kecul and the colorful walls of Pulau Reta. The Indonesian Gov’t has recently agreed to protect this area to provide a safe route for migrating cetaceans as they pass through the straits to their feeding grounds in the deep waters of the Banda Sea. This trip will allow you the opportunity to see some of the most spectacular and untouched coral reefs in Indonesia along with the chance to witness unique behaviors of the many rare and wonderful critters to be found in the Pantar Strait. You can expect to see Rhinopias (lacey scorpionfish), pygmy seahorses, manta rays, schools of trevally and even the occasional whale! This might even be an opportunity for a land visit and to meet some of the locals.
