The Gulf of Boni (also known as Bone Bay or the Bone Gulf) is a large inlet in the south of the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia. To the west lies Sulawesi's South Peninsula, and to the east is the island's South-east Peninsula. To the south, the gulf opens into the Banda Sea.

Extent[edit]

The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) defines the Gulf of Boni as being one of the waters of the East Indian Archipelago. The IHO defines its southern limit as: "A line from, Tg. Lassa, Celebes [Sulawesi], to the North point of Kabaena (5°05′S 121°52′E / 5.083°S 121.867°E / -5.083; 121.867) and thence up this meridian to the coast of Celebes".[1]
