The Real Deal

Our local and expert crew draw on MTS 40 years experience as a pioneer of expeditionary cruise operations in PNG. No other charter vessel can offer the depth of knowledge and experience that Kalibobo Spirit delivers. Charter guests can enjoy cultural festivals and private viewings, scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, reef fishing, bush walking, kayaking, beach combing, bird watching and island hopping amongst some of the world’s most remote and idyllic settings. Guests can soak up PNG’s extraordinarily rich and diverse culture with stopovers in remote villages offering a unique opportunity to interact with the people and participate in the culture of PNG.

Be prepared for the voyage of a lifetime. An experience that will be indelibly etched in your memory. The richness and diversity of what unfolds is irresistible. Nothing you’ve previously experienced can prepare you for what is to come… and just when you’ve seen it all, PNG will astound you anew. You stepped aboard a stranger, but such is the depth and genuineness of our hospitality that you depart as a friend, and a member of the ship’s company.

Once you have experienced our PNG it will come as no surprise to find that much of our business originates from return trips and from enthusiastic referrals from guests who have travelled with us on Kalibobo, the Sepik Explorer, the Melanesian Explorer and the Melanesian Discoverer over a period spanning 40 years!
