KLM Kira Kira is a 22m wooden phinisi schooner liveaboard constructed in 2014 from tropical hardwoods. Kira Kira is comfortable and environmentally friendly. The 8 guests will appreciate the electrical systems (via solar panels and a battery bank) which reduce emissions and operational noise while touring some of the best dive sites Indonesia has to offer.

This European owned and managed Indonesian liveaboard is a smaller, budget friendly option for diving trips to Komodo and Raja Ampat. There are open air social areas allowing you to get to know your fellow cruise members. The design is also perfect for families or groups of friends sharing diving holidays. Entertainment onboard includes a music system, DVD player and projector. The main focus is on the stunning natural surroundings during your diving cruise. There are lots of activities to keep you busy including trekking, kayaking and beach BBQs. You do not leave the 21st century completely behind, a charging station is provided for your personal devices and camera equipment and a laptop is available for your use should you choose to travel light.

You can wake up to magnificent views of Komodo National Park or Raja Ampat from your bed in the double bed cabin on the upper deck. If twin bed accommodation is preferred, there are 3 cabins on the lower deck with traditional portholes and fans for ventilation. Your towels and bedding will be changed if requested.

The homey feel of the liveaboard extends to the hearty meals that are prepared to fuel you for your diving adventures. A variety of food is served during these Indonesian diving trips including favourites such as spaghetti bolognese, homemade breads, burgers and BBQs.

Small dive groups continue the intimate theme you can expect on this liveaboard. The 8 multi lingual crew will ensure you receive personal attention both above and below the waves.
