Icon other equipments

Other

We offer the opportunity to explore the islands of the Komodo and Alor Archipelagos by sea kayak or Stand Up paddle. It could be that you find yourself paddling next to majestic mantas, or perhaps you are even overtaken by a pod of spinner dolphins. With a little more luck, you may see a dugong slowly surfacing to see what is going on. A two man kayak is available onboard Adelaar for our guests to use in suitable areas of the park as well as two SUPs.

The Crew

Since smiling seems to be the Indonesian national pastime, you can be sure of smiles all around on Adelaar. The crew consists of 11 Indonesian seamen, a Western Cruise Manager / PADI Dive Instructor, and a Divemaster. Our liveaboard diving & sailing team seem as if they were born to be at sea, and some of them have been loyal crew members since we arrived in Indonesia in 1993. They work tirelessly, many behind the scenes, to assure that our exclusive cruises run smoothly. Also, they are great fellow cruising companions, and welcome you up to the crew area at any time, for a chat or a game of chess.
