The Voyager and Kararu Dive Voyages

About Kararu Dive Voyages
.... our objectives, company history, our vessel and the people behind Kararu

Our Objectives
Kararu Dive Voyages was started with the objective of bringing Indonesia's scarcely seen underwater treasures to a broader base of divers under the
belief that first hand experience is the key to education and therefore conservation. Actively assisting in raising funds and awareness for
conservation is the cornerstone of the company. Bringing tourism to rarely visited areas of Indonesia and educating the local population in the benefits
of reef and fish conservation is the key to preserving the fragile seas of Indonesia.

Kararu Dive Voyages recognizes that it is at the forefront in being able to
make a long term difference and help to ensure that Indonesia's treasure
and its local cultures are preserved for the benefit of all.

Our Peoples
Experience on board and behind the scenes is essential to any successful
scuba diving liveaboard operation.
Kararu Dive Voyages has carefully selected and trained a team of 19
Indonesian crew members from all over the Indonesia archipelago. The combination of these different island cultures, combined with the crew’s
natural and sincere kindness towards others makes for a special team of
gifted seamen and friendly personalities.
Experienced and professional dive staff are also important, Karl Klingeler and Linda Johnston are Kararu's 2 dynamic dive masters. They are fully qualified PADI, NAUI, BSAC & TDI/SDI instructors with thousands of dives logged. Their local experience and knowledge of marine life habitat will lead you to the
secret places only those intimately familiar with the area can.
