Arenui Boutique Liveaboard
At the Arenui, we are proud and thrilled to have transformed a dream into reality: diving cruises without the hardship.
The Arenui boutique liveaboard is a traditional and magnificent Phinisi, a classic Indonesian wooden sailing vessel, set to explore the majestic underwater world of the Indonesian archipelago. Without doubt we can boast one of the finest crews in Indonesia. With 22 crew serving a maximum of 16 guests, we aim to make your cruise a truly relaxing and first-class experience.
We have given the same attention to making our meals extraordinary, from the setting to the décor and choice of dishes. Rather than the typical dive liveaboard buffets, you will be able to choose from our daily a-la-carte menus. Our food is plentiful, fresh, and centred around local and flown-in ingredients and our internationally trained chefs then add in their own touch of magic, drawing inspiration from local and international cuisine. Even lovers of gourmet cuisine are sure to discover new taste experiences.
The Indonesian archipelago, located within the Coral Triangle, boasts the world’s highest marine biodiversity and offers truly unique diving in a picturesque island setting. This region is truly a dive mecca and high on most divers’ wish-list.
The same attention to detail was given in designing our cruise itineraries which include not only all of the usual popular diving sites in Indonesia, renowned worldwide for its biodiversity, but other world-class destinations which have been overlooked so far by most recreational diving operators. Moreover, the dates of Arenui’s cruises have been planned in such a way as to ensure the most favorable weather conditions and the best sightings of marine life according to the destination.
In Indonesia, whether it’s nudibranchs and rhinopias you’re after, or manta rays and schooling fish, this region really has it all. From black sand muck dives to crystal clear drift dives, from warm water to cold, Indonesia is a place to visit time and time again; once is never enough!
