Join the Arenui for a Special Manta Ray Cruise in Komodo
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, June 12, 2017 @ 09:45 AM (EST)


The operators of the luxury liveaboard Arenui have announced an 11-night “Manta Special” cruise in Komodo, Indonesia. An expert from the Marine Megafauna Foundation (MMF) will be joining the cruise to tell guests everything they need to know about manta rays.

The idea is for interested guests to be actively involved in “citizen science” and assist directly in the protection and conservation of manta rays while enjoying one of the most fabulous dive spots in the world. Participants will also directly contribute to MMF’s efforts in the area, since the Arenui will be donating some of the proceeds to the conservation group.

However, the cruise isn’t only about the stars of the show at famous places like Manta Alley—there’s plenty more to see in Komodo, one of the Coral Triangle’s hotspots of biodiversity. There’s schooling fish at Castle and Crystal Rock, drift dives along incredible soft corals, the hard coral and turtles of Tatawa and Siaba, and the critter heaven of Cannibal Rock. And, let’s not forget our fork-tongued friends wandering around the beaches—the Komodo dragons!

The 11-night cruise aboard the Arenui begins on September 17 in Bima and ends on September 28 in Labuanbajo. Short flights from Bali provide access to both harbors.

For more information, please email Arenui.
