About Amanikan

Amanikan is a custom-built coastal cruiser that fuses the romance of traditional spice trading vessels with the comfort of all the modern amenities you could need to ensure your stay on board exceeds your expectations. Amanikan offers guests the adventure of a lifetime exploring the pristine wilderness and waters of Indonesia’s archipelago.

Excursions aboard Amanikan include the Komodo Expedition and trips to the famed Spice Islands, including the Banda Archipelago. The Komodo Expedition explores the World Heritage Site, Komodo National Park and cruising through the Nusa Tenggara island chain to Rinca and Komodo where the infamous Komodo dragon can be found.

The Spice Island expedition takes in Banda’s seven volcanic islands which, for centuries, were the world’s only source of nutmeg, and each being a tropical paradise. Both expeditions visit some of the world’s most biologically diverse and world renowned dive and snorkel sites.

On Board Facilities & Accommodation
