Those well acquainted, may know of Arenui´s schedule; reserved years in advance. An exclusive opportunity has arisen for a limited number of guests to join our Alor cruise (April 28 – May 8, 2020 | 4 cabins available) and Alor-Komodo expedition (May 10-22, 2020 | last cabin).
An exclusive opportunity has arisen for a limited number of guests to join our Alor cruise (April 28 – May 8, 2020 | 4 cabins available) and Alor-Komodo expedition (May 10-22, 2020 | last cabin). Exquisite dining, luxurious cabins, decadent surroundings and of course, world-renowned diving.
Additionally, this cruise will be joined by Jose Castellano, a highly knowledgeable and passionate marine biologist who will satisfy all of your sea creature curiosities. Can you see yourself, in just a few months´ time, indulging in all that Arenui Boutique Liveaboard has to offer?
Embarking at Maumere, the Arenui will set sail to the east for 10 and 12 nights. Experience 27 – 35 dives in the array of phenomenal dive sites around Alor (and Komodo National Park on the 2nd cruise).
With five dive guides, you are sure to receive a most personal service. An abundance of life is waiting to be discovered. Reef sharks, turtles and pygmy seahorses can be spotted at Serbete Reef. Explore Adonara Island to find the allusive Rhinopias or perhaps we will come across weedy and paddle-flap scorpion fish. At Pura Island, we may be lucky enough to find whales, dolphins or even mola-mola. Are small critters more to your interest? 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.
