The Raja Ampat, or Four Kings Archipelago encompasses more than 9.8 million acres of land and sea off the northwestern tip of Indonesia's West Papua Province.

The area includes the 4 large islands of Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati, and Misool, plus hundreds of smaller islands. The archipelago is part of an area known as the Bird's Head functional seascape, which also contains Cenderawasih Bay, the largest marine national park in Indonesia.

Additional trip info

The Arenui is a traditional and magnificent Phinisi - a classic Indonesian wooden sailing vessel - set to explore the majestic underwater world of the Indonesian archipelago.

If you've dreamed of setting sail aboard an old-fashioned pirate ship (but with all mod-cons) then this is for you. If you want to experience the culture and style of the country, as you sail through its beautiful islands, then this if for you. Unlike modern-style vessels, we offer you the chance to step aboard a truly Indonesian experience, to enhance your time in this special destination.

The Arenui's main objective is to provide something unique and special for our guests, which promoted all the very best elements of Indonesia's rich heritage and traditions. This is reflected in both the design and decor of the boat, from the local craftsmanship to the use of antique pieces and original wooden panels. In addition, the crew wanted to reflect our connection to our environment, since this industry will only survive if we care for the world and ocean around us. With this in mind, construction used as much recycled and reclaimed material as possible. Long-term designs were applied to the layout and features, to ensure that the boat remains in good working condition for many years to come.
