MV. Temu Kira Dive Liveaboard Raja Ampat Islands
SMY. Temukira Dive Liveaboard
A traditional styled live aboard with a price that is easier on your wallet than most, while keeping a safe and comfortable dive vessel. The crew have all helped to build this vessel and now they all work on her. It’s easily noticeable that the crew are all very proud of their vessel. This is actually the best crew on any dive vessel, they are very helpful and always there to help with your needs! The captain on Temukira is by far THE VERY BEST in Indonesia that You have seen.
Being the only traditional styled vessel operating with a rear dive deck that makes diving very easy and efficient as the captain moves this vessel around with ease, always there to pick you up from each dive. Also with the use of a fibreglass tender it is also possible to use this for the dive sites where the boat rests at anchor. All wooden interiors have been designed for practicality and comfort. Charging stations are easily at hand and all rooms have 220V electricity for extra charging space.
With 12 guests and 10 crew the boat could be a little crowded in the salon and dive deck area though enough room to spread out with different decks and plenty of staff on hand to make sure you receive an excellent service. All Temukira’s rooms are air-conditioned and have very large en-suite bathrooms.
Having a rear dive deck and rear deck entry system it is possible to make many dives from the main vessel, for safety a tender boat is always in the water for pick-ups. If full it would best with 2 tenders though only one is available. It is possible to make dives from the tender boat on occasions, there is side ladder for this purpose. It is usually possible to make 4-5 dives per day including a night dive, depending on the logistics of the itinerary.
Temukira Sailing Liveaboard
If you after a traditional style, unpretentious vessel with plenty of charm while not going too heavy on the wallet, Temukira may be the best option for you. What also makes this vessel specially stand out is the crew. Here we have a crew that I find are the proudest, most self motivated crew I have had the pleasure of working with. The crew certainly make up for the lack of luxuries that other live aboard boats offer. If you are really keen on great food, this may not best boat for you!
