The affordable Temukira, sails to the largest marine national park in Indonesia, with natural charm under a beautiful sea, incredible diving, and stunning topside scenery
Temukira is a traditional Indonesian wooden Bugis Schooner liveaboard for an affordable price. It is a safe and comfortable dive vessel perfect for an Indonesian Dive Safari. Divers will experience the World’s purest marine habitat and discover some of the most fascinating dive spots, including: Raja Ampat, Cendrawasih Bay, Flores, Alor, Sulawesi, and Maluk. When not diving with the vibrant corals and large pelagics, guests can enjoy shore excursions, snorkeling or fishing in these incredible waters.
Temukira is locally owned and operated, it has a “home court advantage” in dealing with local authorities and airlines. Agents such as Diviac can help you handle local arrangements for you every step of the way. But when you travel halfway around the World to go diving you want more than competent service—you want excellence where it counts most - Underwater!
Even though our cruises consistently cost less than those of competitors, we never stint on the quality of the diving.
Temukira is part of Grand Komodo’s fleet whose pioneering efforts pay off for Divers today. The Dive Masters all grew up here, likewise our Captains, chase boat drivers, compressor operators, engineers, cooks and cabin attendants are all local people experienced in our locales, operations and customers.
Temukira is part of a fleet of boats operating in the region and are always able to support each other up when necessary. In the distant areas where we operate this provides a level of security few others liveaboards can offer.
Temukira runs scheduled departures throughout the year, and the diverse itineraries makes it easy to arrange a charter to fit your specific needs. We can also provide you with an itinerary combining several consecutive trips—not a bad idea, considering the distance and cost of getting to Indonesia for most Divers.
