Built in 2016, the 150-ft traditional Phinisi boat, Tiaré, caters to just 14 guests. She offers year-round luxury dive cruises in eastern Indonesia, exploring the world-famous dive sites of the Komodo National Park, East Flores, Alor, the Forgotten Islands, the Banda Sea and Raja Ampat. Non-divers are also welcome and can enjoy snorkeling activities.
Life On Board
All indoor and outdoor living areas, decks and cabins are made with antique teak sustainably salvaged from traditional old Javanese houses. The six air-conditioned cabins are designed with your relaxation in mind. There are two triple cabins, which are spacious enough to accommodate two adults and one child, or three adults, with under-bed storage to ensure ease of movement within the cabin. The other four cabins, two twins and two doubles, accommodate two guests each. All have private en-suite bathrooms.
Meals aboard the Tiaré Cruise are prepared fresh and feature a mix of local gourmet cuisine and international dishes, served buffet style either in the indoor lounge or alfresco on the Main Deck. All-day snacks are available and you can look forward to at least one beach barbeque. All dietary requirements can be catered to with prior notice.
The large air-conditioned indoor lounge features cushioned couches and tables, perfect for socializing and swapping stories with your fellow divers. Here, you’ll find a stereo system for your entertainment, a full stock of beverages, both hot and cold, and a bar stocked with imported wines, beers and spirits.
Ideal for underwater photographers, a camera table with plenty of shelving, multiple charging stations, a DVD player, and TV screen for photo playback, is available. In addition to the indoor lounge, the outdoor bow lounge is a space to enjoy and experience the freedom of being at sea. Relax in the Indonesian sunshine or under the stars on comfortable loungers and couches.
Diving With Tiaré
On the dedicated Diving Deck, you will have your own personal area to set up your equipment. Hot water showers are available here to warm you up after a night dive. Tiaré’s highly qualified team is on hand to help set up and transfer your equipment to the waiting tender dive boats, and after a dive your wetsuits will be washed and dried for you.
All on-board instrumentation, engine, generators, Nitrox, plumbing, fire detection and electric systems are top-of-the-range imported products. PADI standards are adhered to at all times, and each diver is fitted with an electronic rescue and location system, and a waterproof pocket with a cell and whistle.
The Tiaré Cruise will take you to some of the Indonesia’s most incredible dive sites, where ‒ as a consequence of the immense tidal changes from the North Pacific Ocean and the fierce currents and heavy swells of the powerful Indian Ocean ‒ the nutrient-rich water has created a magnificent ecosystem flourishing with more than six thousand species of life. The Tiaré Liveaboard Indonesia is best enjoyed with your partner, family, friends, or with the newfound friends you’ll meet on board.
