    Enjoy 9 days liveaboard diving aboard the MV TemuKira in the world’s marine diversity hotspot.   Embark from Papua New Guinea to offshore pinnacles and remote islands frosted by zillions of fish and magical invertebrate life on beautiful coral reefs.  High voltage diving!

    Raja Ampat, translated to “Four Kings”, is an archipelago of 1500 islands located of off the “bird’s head” of Papua New Guinea.  The location and currents of the Raja area combine to create what many marine scientists say is the highest marine life diversity on Earth!  These factors make Raja possibly the richest coral reef system in the world.  All this and nice warm water maDSC03871ke it a divers paradise.

    This custom trip will first venture south to the coral gardens and critter diving of the Misool area and then travel back north to the Dampier Strait for high adrenaline current and wall diving.  Due to the high bio-diversity, we should see an large amount of different and strange marine life: nudibranchs, wobegong sharks, leafy scorpionfish, mantas, archerfish and much more.
