Dive the world-famous sites of Komodo with the Arenui
Have you dived Komodo National Park yet? Have you been treated to 5* accommodation and service on a dive liveaboard? Now's your chance!
TRIP DETAILS: This cruise departs Bali on 26 June 2014 for 11 nights, for the 'Grand Komodo' itinerary, ending 7 July 2014 back in Bali.
- Different cabin styles are available; upper-deck twin-deluxe GANESH (great light plus a camera table and twin beds), or lower-deck deluxe GARUDA (king-bed plus single-bed that also converts to a sofa) or lower-deck deluxe DAYAK (king-bed plus dedicated sofa/relax-area) - details online.
- This is a great itinerary for all kinds of muck diving, as the dive sites here are packed full of unbelievable critters such as ornate ghost pipefish, pygmy seahorses, rare clown frogfish, blue-ringed octopus, pipefish, scorpion leaf fish, coleman shrimp, boxer crabs, zebra crabs and of course the weird and wonderful nudibranchs (if lucky, the ridiculously cute Pikachu nudi)! Divers keen on coral reefs will also be amazed at the range of corals that Komodo has to offer - from soft to hard and in warm to temperate waters - while those seeking out schooling fish need look no further than the thrilling current dives of Gili Lawa Laut. If you're also hoping for some pelagics and ocean giants then bring your wide-angle lens along too for the resident mantas and sharks, but keep a watch for passing dolphins, whales and the elusive mola-mola (sun fish).

MORE ABOUT THE ARENUI
From our online photo gallery www.thearenui.com/gallery.html you can see that the Arenui is the most luxurious dive Liveaboard currently operating in Asia.
ARENUI DESIGN & STYLE: We offer not just incredible diving in arguably the world’s best dive location, but a truly boutique setting to call home for the duration of your trip. The Arenui is a magnificent Phinisi (a traditional Indonesian wooden sailing vessel) and a work-of-art in itself. She was built with conservation in mind, using 70% recycled wood, and she was designed to give guests a real taste of local culture, with handicrafts and décor from around the Indonesian provinces. Come and experience the beautiful style and hospitality of Indonesia.
ARENUI SERVICES & FACILITIES: Guests on the Arenui can relax in exceptionally spacious cabins, which far surpass anything one would expect to find on a dive liveaboard. Plus, rather than the typical liveaboard buffets, you will be able to choose from our daily a-la-carte menus. Arenui believes that, even when sailing around remote islands, there's no reason to forego fine dining! After all, a relaxing meal prepared with care and style is the best way to remain full of energy for the next dive! Guests can also enjoy a panoramic view from our skydeck, as we cruise through the islands of Indonesia, and even enjoy a full range of massage and spa treatments onboard.
ARENUI CREW: If you are not familiar with the Arenui, without doubt we can boast one of the finest crews in Indonesia. Our 3 Indonesian divemasters (Ali, Toby and Wawan) are rated amongst the most knowledgeable in the region. Ali was trained for many years by Larry Smith (“the legend” of Indonesian’s diving industry)., Wawan has spent several years diving Komodo and Raja Ampat areas and Toby has an amazing knack for spotting rare critters (famous for being the first to spot the psychedelic frogfish in Ambon Bay). The whole operation is led by our 2 highly experienced western cruise directors, Jerry and Debbie. Furthermore, you can rest assured that besides our very experienced divemasters and cruise directors, we have a further 18 well-trained crew members onboard from captains and engineers to masseurs and chefs (offering local and international gourmet meals, with vegetarian options on request). Most of the crew have vast experience working on other liveaboards operating in the area, but prior to the Arenui’s very first cruise every member, of staff was trained so their skill and performance would meet our high standard of operation.
With 22 crew serving a maximum of 16 guests, we aim to make your cruise a truly relaxing and first-class experience.
