The world-famous Arenui

You will be diving into the stunning Indonesian archipelago, a true remote paradise, packed with 5-star dive sites to match our 5-diamond liveaboard and crew. Indonesia offers everything from healthy coral reefs to sandy critter hide-outs, with so much to see that one trip is never enough. Dive Komodo for incredible diversity from frogfish and nudibranchs to schooling jacks and mola-mola (oceanic sunfish), then travel to the untouched reefs of Alor and Flores, before heading into the Banda Sea to dive the wonders of Maluku (and visit the famous Spice Islands) but don’t forget to make time for Raja Ampat and its world-famous gorgonian sea fans, enigmatic wobbegong sharks and manta rays.

We have combined our impeccable service and care with Arenui ‘s luxury to bring you a world-class diving trip, with a truly relaxing and luxurious liveaboard experience. Onboard, you can have it all from gourmet food, and personalized service by its 22-member staff to amazing colorful critter-packed, large schooling fishes, and large pelagic encounters.  Photo classes and free cameras to use all week. Give Margo or Tom a call to answer all your questions.

The Arenui Liveaboard yacht is designed with spacious boutique-style cabins that once again invite guests to enjoy the country they’re visiting (local handicrafts and inspirations). There is a luxury restaurant serving international and local cuisine on board (evenings are waiter-served a-la-carte) and an added both an outdoor sky restaurant and a top-deck sky lounge for massages, sunbathing, relaxing, and enjoying the island views. Serving you aboard this luxury yacht, a well-trained and enthusiastic local crew, including 2 highly sought-after chefs and 3 eagle-eyed dive guides, to join the 2 western cruise directors, adding up to 22 members of the Arenui onboard team providing you with truly personalized service for up to 16 guests.

Arenui, kids and diving, family vacations, Komodo, kids and diving

Where are you going: Komodo is one of Indonesia’s most famous diving destinations. Manta rays, sharks, immense schools of fish, and colorful reefs are just a few of the stars of Komodo. 

See Why diving with kids on Liveaboards to amazing

Komodo is relatively remote but if you want an adventure and incredible diving it should be at the top of your bucket list. Expect to find an array of dive sites perfectly suited for drift diving. Water temperature can be chilly, sometimes dipping below 77°F (25°C), so bring extra layers of neoprene or a hood on top of a basic 3mm suit to stay warm. It is possible to dive year-round due to the dry weather. Visibility is usually quite good at 66-100ft.

One of the most interesting dive sites is Makassar Reef. This is a 1.2mile (2km) channel with a unique seascape featuring craters and dunes of small rocks which have been shaped by currents. It is often said that it looks like the surface of the moon. For macro lovers, Komodo National Park has plenty to offer as well. Sheltered dive sites boast myriad critters hiding amongst slopes and walls of healthy hard and soft corals.

 Komodo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.

How to get there

For Komodo trips, we advise flying into Bali (DPS). There are many airlines flying to Bali. Some options are Cathay Pacific (via Hong Kong), Eva Airways (via Taipei), Korean Air (via Seoul), Japan Airlines, and All Nippon Airways (via Tokyo). Singapore Airlines is another excellent option.

You should arrive in Bali by the day before embarkation and leave on the day after disembarkation unless you would like to spend more time in Indonesia before and/or after our cruise. We can help you with domestic flights and hotels in Bali.  The cruise will start and end in Labuanbajo (LBJ).

You should fly to Labuanbajo (from Bali) on the morning of embarkation day. After disembarkation, you can fly back to Bali (usually the guests take one of the morning flights). We recommend flying from Bali to Labuanbajo with Garuda Indonesia  because, It’s the best Indonesian airline

(Labuanbajo-Labuanbajo) 

This cruise starts or ends in either Labuanbajo (LBJ). For reaching/leaving Labuanbajo, we recommend using Bali as the hub as there are regular direct flights between Bali and Labuanbajo, using the airline Garuda (1 hour 35 minutes flight time). You can also use Bali as the connection city if you need to come from or go to other domestic cities such as Jakarta or Manado, or even for regional and international flights.
