The Anambas Island and surrounding little islands are breathtaking and beautiful, their lush green peaks rising from the ocean surrounded by snowy white sand and fringed with palm trees. At low tide, the land rises from the water creating an inland sea so clear you can see the coral gardens below.
The pristine waters hold a bevy of treasures. From brightly colored hard coral gardens teeming with marine life to wrecks, there are unlimited options for snorkeling and diving in Anambas.
Discovering this small group of islands is best done by boat. An Anambas sailing trip or liveaboard allows access to the remote islands from the comfort of a luxury ship. The underwater landscape of Bawah Reserve is a marine conservation dive area with healthy reefs surrounded by a kaleidoscope of marine life.
Remote Pencil Dot Island, a small uninhabited island named for its size on the map, it is the perfect place to relax. Dive the Igara wreck to explore the remnants of the ship. Schools of Barracuda and Snapper are often seen here along with a few resident Nurse Sharks.
The ideal time to explore the islands is between April through September when the rains and wind have died down, and the seas are calm.
Diving in Anambas Islands follows a similar season, April through September/October.
The one highlight for water enthusiasts around the world occurs toward the end of the season. Most whale sharks migrate through the world in search of food, and historically, the gentle giants pass through in September and October. If luck is on your side, you will have the chance to get up close to these majestic whale sharks.
Your journey to the Anambas island will startfrom the city Nongsa in Batam regency. The easiest way to reach Batam is from Singapore with a 45 minutes ferry ride. There, your boat will await you to begin the adventure to the Indonesian Seychelles islands!
Amazing trip!! I am very happy to share my feedback about Hello Indo services and recommendations. My boyfriend and I had a very nice experience booking our sailing journey with them. They have selected for us the best liveaboard and experiences aboard for our romantic holidays. The organization of the trip went smoothly, Charles was very attentive to our needs and gave us the best advice and offer.
Everything was perfect. The comfort of the boat, a warm and attentive team, the food, the exceptional dives. I can not wait to return.
We had our first travel experience last week and thanks to Hello Indo, everything was perfect. The team was very helpful and gave us great advice on choosing our boat and our itinerary. The staff on board were attentive and the activities adapted to our needs. We strongly recommend that you book a trip with Hello Indo.
The boat is beautiful, the crews are very friendly, the food was delicious and the most important is the landscape, so beautiful, totally crazy and I was fascinated! Thank you to the Hello Indo team for helping us make this moment an incredible and unforgettable one! !
Flawless. It was the most incredible vacation experience. 12 friends had fun. The crew was fantastic. Unforgettable.
A group of 12 people took an 8-night cruise with Hello Indo. Up there as one of the best vacations of all time. With a large group to coordinate, Charles of Hello Indo showed patience, responsiveness and honesty, as he responded to many requests as we prepared to leave. My teenage daughters were never bored (as a result), and the sea life and scenery were simply beautiful.

We felt really spoiled and our 5 day cruise felt like they were too short! I couldn’t have asked for a better vacation.
