Amazing start to finish

This trip was perfect in every way. Of course, the diving is second to none. I wonder how I will dive anywhere else. The boat is beautiful and maintained well. It’s nicely laid out with covered and open spaces never fell like I was getting cabin fever, even though I was on the boat for 10 nights. The dive crew is expert and take care of everything. Preparing your equipment, loading it, helping you get it on, making sure it’s just right, and thinking through and explaining each dive, and what is great about it. They were enthusiastic, prepared, professional, and fun. The cabins are nicely appointed, with air-conditioning, and the boat is so stable. we didn’t take any of the sea sickness pills that I brought. I went there with my family, so there were 10 of us on the boat, which was a really great way to do it. If you can find a bunch of people to go in on it with you. We paid for an extra dive guide for my dad, which was really helpful and gave us flexibility. Just amazing

Best experience ever!

Just perfect, it was our Honeymoon, and Rayane and his Crew make it just special and unforgettable. The food level is just amazing, better then in the hotels, the boat is really good maintained and cleaned all the time. The snorkel experiences is the main part and the Tour Manger try his best to make it special, at the end still nature, never forget. All the crews member are so profetional. I think there are not much boat like this. We will sure contact them in the future because for us Teman is synonymous of best life and friends! Thank you again guys!

Amazing experience!

I had an amazing time on the Teman. The staff is incredibile, they fullfill every wish for you. Also the diving instructures are very professional and helpful. I have not much diving experience and felt very comfortable with them and gained trust very quickly. High comfort in cabins, a lot of space on the boat to chill and relax. I loved the half day trips to the islands with the view points. The only thing that was missing for me was Indonesian food, they kitchen is rather western, which was really good but a bit more of Indonesian kitchen would have been nice.

Diving with manta rays, friendliness of the staff and the knowledge of the dive crew. They took us to the sites which they knew would be the best for the conditions and made everything so easy for us. The food on board was incredible, the cabins were clean and comfortable and the trip was very relaxing.
