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 a dive mecca and high on most diver’s wish-lists. In Indonesia, whether its nudibranchs or 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, Indonesia is a place to visit time and time again; once is never enough!

What prior travelers say
This trip will be FABULOUS! Diving in Indonesia is like nowhere else. The reef is so healthy and beautiful and we saw pygmy seahorses, manta rays, and everything in between including wobbegong sharks and even the epaulette sharks out walking around. The Arenui has earned its place among the most luxurious liveaboards in the world and in partnership with them, we have developed a unique itinerary through the Forgotten Islands. It has taken me 14 years of diving, to find a place I will actually call my ‘favorite place to dive in the world’ – INDONESIA – Come and let me show you why!
Know before you go
On Arrival, a visa can be obtained free of charge at the airport. It is valid for 30 days and not extendable.
We recommend to travel with Rupiahs and/or USDs. We suggest you exchange to Indonesia Rupiah on arrival at the airport as the conversion rate there might be better than the one at your local bank.
The onboard payments (and tips) can be made in cash: Indonesia Rupiah, USD or by credit card with a possible surcharge of 3%.
**Important: The luggage surcharges must be paid in cash with Indonesian Rupiah. Do not forget to have enough change before registration at the airport. Nevertheless, you will be able to find currency exchange office or bank distributor in most of the airports.
No vaccination required.
Malaria is a risk, mainly in rural areas (Java’s main cities and Bali are considered malaria-free).
Dengue is a major problem in Indonesia. There is no vaccination so we highly recommend taking measures to avoid mosquito bites (repellent, long-sleeved t-shirt, and long pants).
We recommend you to check with your physician before departure.
