Hell of a trip

5

I joined Tarci and Monkey Me for an insane, life changing trip from Raja Ampat all the way up to North-Sulawesi, all in 5 weeks. Before entering the boat I had no clue of sailing but right from the beginning Tarci put a lot of trust and patience in me (and the rest of the crew) when explaining the whole game of sailing. We've got really the full package - snorkeling and anchoring in the most beautiful places, overnight sails, exploring deserted islands and villages, experiencing proper boat life. We would cook the best food, Tarci would make sure that each crew's craving would be satisfied. Monkey Me is a boat with a lot of character and soul, that brings random strangers together who afterwards leave as friends. Tarci, thanks for sharing life stories/knowledge/precious time and roasted peanuts with me! I will come back on board for sure.

Unique experience

5

It's been one of the best experiences I've had so far. The boat is extremely comfortable, with lots of space, everything super handy, fresh, and easy to clean...and Tarci is someone who will impact you. He's a great character whose way of living and seeing life won't leave you indifferent. Thanks for the patience, the energy, and the care during those days!

Best way of travelling!

5

We sailed with Tarci around Raja Ampat last december and it was the best adventure we could have wished for. Tarci is a very nice and attentive man who is always taking care of the crew and making sure everyone is having fun. He has a lot of patience when teaching and has a lot of stories to tell! It was also a unique experience to sail in a warram. Thank you Tarci and Monkey Me!

A dream came true<3

5

i recomend 100% this experience. Ive been in Monkey me for tree months and it actually felt like home. Ive seen the most beautifull places, learned how to sail, and enjoyed a lot. It was a dream. Tarci is a really good captain, you will always feel safe and he will explain and teach you all. Hes a beautifull person, im very happy to have met him and i would love to join Monkey me again someday. After this adventure, i thing that traveling by boat is definitly the best way to travel, you arrive to places in the middle of nowhere, and i feel that i couldnt do it in a better boat. Indonesia is incredible as well, its paradise and the people is beautifull. Im so gratefull soooo if youre thinking to join i would say YES!!!

Best 2 months of my life!

5

I went on an adventure with Tarci for 2 months where we sailed over 1500 nautical miles in Indonesia. Monkey Me is a great boat and perfect for learning how to sail! Tarci taught me as much as possible about sailing and navigation (and other life lessons, he is a wise man!!), which was all very new to me. He is a very skilled captain, patient and will take his time to teach you everything. I loved that every day was different, if we weren't sailing, we were snorkeling, discovering local markets, hiking mountains, interacting with locals and so much more! We saw some places that I never thought I would see in my life and I'm very grateful for that. I felt very comfortable and Tarci will make sure you're feeling like home on his boat. I hope i get the chance to go back on an adventure on Monkey Me with Tarci because it is a once in a lifetime experience!! Thank you and hope to see you soon!

Back for A Second Time

5

I had the opportunity to sail again with Tarci and other crew in November 2022 for a month in Indonesia. Two years after the first trip once again my trip on Monkey Me was living the dream. Snorkelling where no other people go ( some of the best coral I have ever seen) being invited to Indonesian families home for dinner it’s an never ending adventure . Thanks Tarci/Monkey Me. I said 2 years ago I’d be back. I’ll be back again.

I FELT LIKE A PIRATE ?

5

Monkey Me is a beautifully hand crafted 38ft Warram Catamaran and a good boat to cruise aboard. It was a great opportunity to learn to sail as she is easy to handle and very managable. Tarci is a great captain and an excellent sailor who enjoys sharing his knowledge and I always felt very safe. I had a truely unique experience and I highly recommend Monkey Me if you enjoy a path less travelled. Thank you Monkey Me for a wonderful adventure!

great adventure

5

I sailed with Tarci for 6 weeks and had an incredible adventure , I have been around boats for a long time and still managed to learn plenty as we traveled . Tarci is a patient teacher an excellent sailor and great company . Monkey me is a fun boat and opens up a whole lot of opportunity to interact with locals as you travel. Regardless of your skill level this boat and this skipper will provide a great adventure

Unique Adventures Guaranteed!

5

Me and my partner have had an absolute blast with Tarci! If you're after some travel off the beaten track, interacting with local villages, and seeing some amazing parts of Indonesia then I highly recommend jumping on board! The boat itself is as cool as it looks - we had the pizza oven going in the middle of nowhere eating under the stars! And it's perfect for this part of the world as there's heaps of deck space and the trampolines to relax in to get the much needed breeze! Tarci makes the boat feel like your home away from home and nothing is ever a drama. He's a real character who seems to find himself best mates with the right people in villages (despite the language barrier) so you will end up seeing some unreal spots that aren't on trip advisor.

I will say Yes Yes Yes to Tarci as good captain :-)

5

I having many great time with Tarci on sailing with his boat Monkey Me around Molluccus Island and West Papua Indonesia.

Many things I can say, as my title I will say many Yes if I have opportunities to sailing with him and monkey me.

A Memorable and Warm Trip over Kei Island

5

I met Tarci few months ago, and didn't know that he was such an adventurous guy until he asked me to join his fancy Monkey Me and went on a trip with him. It was such a memorable one, the boat was beautifully-made, integrated with things to maximize your pleasuring times there. Tarci was indeed, a skillful and easy-going captain throughout the difficulties we might faced while sailing. He was a man of character by showing an appropriate respect to his own crew. He was friendly, liked to talk about things and didn't mind to share his huge knowledge in sailing even to the beginner one (me, included :D) He did preserve his humanity especially for the local people, he was sailing not only to fulfill his thirst for adventure but also to find people who might need his help all along the way. The boat was homey, and pleasureable and Tarci was really a caring person, to his boat as well. I would never forget the taste of morning-omelette he made, the wind-breeze while sailing and the times I exposed myself to warm beam of sunray. It was all because of Tarci's invitation and shout out to Monkey Me for bringing me to adventures I've never been. Thankyou so much, Tarci. You were a figure that I would remember for my lifetime, a truest adventurous soul with pure heart, bright smile, and integrity. See you in another moment!

Best time of our half year trip thru SE Asia

5

We spent 2 weeks on the BEST BOAT out there with the BEST CAPTAIN you can ask for. Monkey Me catamaran has a charm and was built by Tarci him self and that is something we totally love about the boat. It has everything you need and more.The coolest part on Monkey Me is THE OVEN for pizza nights and the spacious deck where everyone can hang out. Everyday We had experience new things from sailing to diving or that you can climb an active volcano in flip flops:) Tarci showed us an incredible places and taught us a lot what we are grateful for. Thank you Tarci!

Adventure of a lifetime

5

I traveled with Tarci for 27 days ( Feb/March 2020) He taught me how to navigate/ sail even though I had no prior experience. Tarci is an easy going captain.. but safety first was a must. The experiences of different places and people I meet was beyond my expectations. MonkeyMe is a beautiful catamaran built by Tarci with open space aboard. It Is not a big white polished cat with all the trimmings, it is a sailing boat on which I learnt to sail, laugh and live a dream beyond my imagination.. The daily land trips where always amazing from meeting the locals to climbing volcanoes.. I will return.. Thankyou Tarci/ MonkeyMe

most awesome travel of my life

5

I joined Tarci as a crew on his AMAZING Monkey Me catamaran. Even though I had no sailing experience, he took me onboard happy to teach me whatever I wanted & needed to know in a fantastic way. I'm extremely greatful that I was part of his first big intercontinental journey and I saw things that I could never have dreamed of. I also never sawa more incredibly beautiful, colorful, homey, cool boat, Tarci clearly gave it a magnificent soul by building it with love and creativity. He's a very laidback captain, cooks amazingly good and has the cool rule that only great food is allowed :) We were 5 on this journey and the boat is well-designed to procure enough space and comfiness. Meet up with Tarci & Monkey Me and you will have some amazing adventures, discussions, meals, drinks, ... for sure! I surely hope that I'll join him once more on one of his great adventures. Tarci I wish u all the best on your continued Indonesia exploration, hope 2 CU again, lots of peace & love! Gaelle

Best month of our lives!

5

We befriended Tarci in Darwin before he set sail for Indonesia & were lucky enough to join him for just under a month of amazing adventure through the Raja Ampat/North Malaku region. We had an absolute ball! We're a couple in our late 20s and have a strong adventure drive - Tarci did nothing but encourage/support that! MonkeyMe is a special boat with so much space that its awesome for socialising but there's also great pockets where you can find your own space if you feel like it. We ate like kings & slept like babies. We met some other boats with crewbay people on board while we were travelling & encouraged Tarci to set up a profile & continue to have people on board because he's a brilliant host! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to be in touch! Jess & Matt

Incredible Adventure

5

Have just spent 3 weeks travelling through North Maluku, Indonesia with Tarci and have had but nothing but good experiences! The food was great and was comfortable living. Very good boat for relaxing and plenty of space! He taught me how to sail and made me feel very capable. Everyday was full of cool experiences and fun interactions with locals if we pulled up to a village. He’s a fantastic guy with a good heart. Join the boat with an adventurous attitude and open mind and you’ll have the best time ever!
