The KLM Teman was built of wood in Sulawesi in 2017 and is a 36 metre long authentic Indonesian sailing boat that offers incomparable charm and a unique way to discover the underwater treasures of Indonesia. It sails seasonally between Raja Ampat and Komodo. Trips to Triton Bay, Halmahera, Sulawesi or Banda Sea and beyond can also be planned upon request.
With 5 spacious and comfortable ensuite cabins, Teman can host up to 12 guests on board. Its crew of 10 endeavour to provide guests with the friendliest cruise atmosphere. This means that small groups can enjoy tailor-made itineraries and cruising experiences. Even though the cabins are highly comfortable, you'll also enjoy memorable times in the various common and leisure areas where you can interact with the rest of the guests and the crew. The dining room also acts as a large lounge area with beds and puffs, depending on your mood and needs. The whole area is surrounded by 180° open windows, allowing you to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful views throughout the cruise.
Dving operations on the Teman make use of the inflatable watercraft and 2 wooden dinghies. You'll travel from one dive site to another to discover the best places that the Indonesian Archipelago has to offer. Each of the 6 main destinations are unique and offer different underwater experiences and challenges. The Cruise Director and dive guides will be delighted to give you all the information you need before, during and after each dive. The dive deck is spacious and has a large table with 2 side benches to listen to briefings. There’s also a camera storage and charging zone at your disposal, as well as an outside shower and toilet. All rental equipment is well maintained and at your disposal. For those divers with extra energy, the boat provides paddle board kayak activities.
Specialized in scuba diving and leisure cruises, the Teman liveaboard offers you a unique opportunity to share the gems they have discovered during their 20 years of experience diving and sailing across Indonesia. From your first step onboard to your last, the KLM Teman team will ensure your needs are well met.
