Boutique liveaboard Arenui has expanded its catalogue of Indonesian itineraries with its most remote yet—the “Forgotten Islands” in the southeast corner of the Malaku. The 600-mile-long chain of archipelagos, which stretches from Timor to West Papua, takes in some of the region’s most pristine reefs, with gin-clear waters, spectacular wall dives, incredible coral bommies, and mind-blowing drop-offs.

The Arenui’s new 12- and 13-day cruises to the Forgotten Islands add to a select bunch of luxury dive adventures that take guests to Komodo, Alor, Flores, Raja Ampat, and the famed Spice Islands in Maluku.

For more information, including sample itineraries, see the press release below.


Experience a New Destination – Forgotten Islands

The operators of the Arenui, the premier luxury liveaboard in Indonesia, are proud to announce a new itinerary—the spectacular and far-flung Maluku Tenggara, otherwise known as the “Forgotten Islands.”

Experience a diving adventure and rediscover a 1,000 kilometre chain of islands! This is one of the best diving opportunities in the world—from Alor island’s incredible muck dives to the anemone city of Pura Island and on to the walls, slopes and pinnacles of the Banda Sea, well known for the best visibility in Indonesia.

Sample Itineraries:

Dive on reefs only accessible by liveaboard. Watch Nyata’s incredible fish action. Be amazed by the untouched hard coral reefs of Damar. Experience the walls and overhangs of the Terbangs. Look for schooling hammerhead sharks and large pelagic fish at the submerged reefs of Dusborgh and Nil Desperandum. Dive at one of the most pristine dive sites you will every see at Dawera Island, where the fish action is just beyond belief.

Join the Arenui boutique liveaboard and enjoy exceptionally spacious cabins, tastefully furnished with exquisite handicrafts from each of the Indonesian provinces. Relax in our indoor restaurant or enjoy the view from our fabulous sky deck, with tasty buffets plus daily à-la-carte menus. With 22 crew (including two Western cruise directors and three local dive guides) serving a maximum of 16 guests, we aim to make your cruise a truly relaxing and first-class experience!

Don’t think about it anymore! Get ready for an experience of a lifetime.
