Raja Ampat Expeditions
The Raja Ampat expeditions offer a five- or seven-night adventure through one of the world’s most exceptional marine areas.
Amanwana’s fleet team maintains a number of boats for cruising, fishing and diving. Choose your vessel and explore nearby coral coves and beaches, ideal for shell collecting, beachcombing, snorkelling and sunbathing. Cruise to the islands of Medang and Satonda or head south into Saleh Bay, a fascinating inland sea. Other possibilities include sunset or starlight cruises on the calm waters of Amanwana Bay.
More adventurous multi-day options include the Aman Komodo Expedition (March-October) and the Raja Ampat Expedition (November-February), on board Amanikan or Amandira. These two cruising vessels can be chartered in tandem.
A custom-built, 32-metre, motor-powered Phinisi cruiser, Amanikan features three above-deck cabins, a foredeck with bar for outdoor dining, and extensive dive facilities. For more information
Launching in May 2015, Amandira adds sailing adventures to Amanwana’s on-water offerings. The custom-built, 52-metre, two-masted Phinisi sailing vessel features three spacious cabins and provides dive facilities with nitrox for experienced divers. For more information
