Expeditions by Sea
Navigate new horizons on a fully-staffed, hand-crafted Phinisi or traditional teak cruising vessel. Sail the high seas, dive pristine reefs and discover landscapes few are ever privy to
Verdant atolls and unparalleled marine life
The Raja Ampat expedition is a five- or seven-night adventure through one of the world’s most exceptional marine areas. Renowned for its biodiversity, Raja Ampat or ‘The Four Kings’ encompasses over 40,000km² in the northeast seas of the Indonesian Archipelago where the Pacific becomes the Indian Ocean. The resulting currents stir up nutrient-rich water which, along with the tropical climate, nurtures magnificent coral reefs and unparalleled marine life.
Set sail in search of Dragons
The Komodo Expedition is a seven-night adventure through the pristine wilderness and waters of Indonesia’s Komodo National Park. Encounter antediluvian creatures unchanged since prehistoric times on a visit to the only two islands in the world where the infamous Komodo dragon can still be found. Cruise through the Nusa Tenggara Archipelago to dive and snorkel some of the world’s most biologically diverse and widely acclaimed underwater sites. This expedition truly unveils a forgotten Eden, on land and sea.
Explore the seas of the Indonesian Archipelago on our two flagship cruisers
A 52-metre Phinisi sailing vessel
Aman’s flagship boat, Amandira is a custom-built, two-masted Phinisi sailing vessel with five spacious cabins and a crew of 14. Amandira can travel under sail as well as motor, with facilities including Nitrox to allow longer dive times for experienced divers. Two cabins are fitted with king-size beds, while the third offers a queen-size bed or twin beds. Two further cabins have double bunk beds. Amandira explores the Unesco-protected Komodo National Park, or the magnificent coral reefs and unparalleled marine life of Raja Ampat. It can be chartered alongside Amanikan for the ultimate Indonesian odyssey.
A custom-built 32-metre coastal cruiser
An elegant, fully-staffed motor-powered cruiser handmade from hardwoods, Amanikan fuses the romance of traditional spice trading vessels with modern comfort.
