Kurabesi Explorer Liveaboard & Charter will take you to eastern Indonesia, a living paradise on earth, where you can immerse yourself in nature, interact with friendly, authentic people, learn traditional music, and savor local delicacies.
Our vessel carries the honorable name of the Biak warrior Kurabesi, who supported the sultan of Ternate in freeing his people from the stronghold of Portuguese rule. In thanks, Kurabesi was offered the sultan’s daughter’s hand and rule over Easter Ternate, named Raja Ampat after their four children. On rainy days, snuggle in our cozy bean bags or browse books from our reading nook.
