Press Release

Why does the Arenui cruise only the seas of Indonesia the year through? Here we have vast amounts of the most stunning and biologically diverse dive sites in the world.

On the Arenui, we meticulously plan our cruises, following the best dive sites and conditions over the year. Joining an Arenui cruise means the opportunity to experience the best diving this unique region has to offer; creating life-long memories as part of the Arenui family. Each area we cruise has its own exceptional qualities. Let us tell you a little more about each of them……

Alor

This hidden gem is unbeknown to some of even the keenest of divers. It is a rapidly up and coming destination and it’s not difficult to see why. Not only does Alor host the world’s best Rhinophia dive site but it is the only clear water critter Mecca in Indonesia. The magical anemone covered site of ‘Anemone City’ and pristine coral reefs gives divers the feeling they are part of a Disney movie. Here we also have the chance to meet whales, hammerheads, dugongs and the most peculiar and intriguing mola-mola. How about small critters? The sandy slopes of Tanjung Waiwowan is the perfect environment for different kinds of ghost pipefish including the very rare Halemeda ghost pipefish. Wunderpus and blue ring octopus have been spotted here before. During the night dive here, we can look out for juvenile brown-banded bamboo sharks, Helmut flying gurnards and frogfish crawling around the darkened site. During the cruise we can visit the famous Pura Island Villagers. We may watch them expertly dive underwater from their wooden dugout canoes wearing home-made goggles fashioned from wood and glass bottles. Alor is one of the best kept secrets for diving in paradise! From grand pelagic creatures to spectacular critters, what more could you ask for? Take your chance to experience the lesser known fantastical wonders of Alor.

Komodo

Komodo Why is this renowned location so particularly special? Within this small area of the National Park, we have some of the world’s most diverse dive sites; hosting incredible marine menageries and array of different eco-systems. The underwater terrain presents many contrasts, with sheer cliff walls, pinnacles, sandy flat bottoms, underwater plateaus, slopes, caves, swim-throughs and channels – all with differing colors, sizes and types of both hard and soft corals. Elected by hundreds of millions of votes, Komodo is the only dive destination listed as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. Nowhere else on Earth can you meet a real-life dragon! Our Komodo trip may include a land excursion to encounter these mythical beasts. Within just 30 nautical miles we can dive two different oceans; the cooler waters of the Indian Ocean in the south and the warm areas of Pacific Ocean in central and northern regions. Komodo is a UNESCO site and reported by the Marine Megafauna Foundation to have the world’s highest population of manta rays. On our Komodo cruises, we will be diving in some of the very few locations on Earth where it is possible to find both reef and oceanic manta ray species. As you may know, nothing beats the emotive and magical moment one of these gentle giants crosses your path…you mustn’t forget to keep breathing! Komodo presents a wonderous amount of fascinating critters such as pygmy seahorses and rare nudibranchs. Here we can even dive over hot springs at an underwater volcano! Komodo offers a spectrum of wonder both above and below the sea. What better way to experience it than cruising in the ultimate luxury and comfort of the Arenui.
