Sports massages are optional for our divers to prepare for the next plunge. Our crew consists of 12 dedicated and highly trained members.
Delicious Western and Asian food are served 4 times a day as a buffet with vegetarian choices at all times. You can eat as much as you want. Frequent barbeques on tropical beaches contribute to the euphoric experience of this safari in paradise. A glass of wine is offered to you at dinner time. Different alcoholic beverages can be ordered from the bar.
Euphoria offers a shaded dive deck with rinse tanks and showers. Dive guides are multilingual. They will assist you in every way and take care of your safety. Snorkelers will also get all the attention they need. Several diving courses are available on board, as well as a rental service. All dives start from a specially built diving zodiac or diving pontoon. A normal day gives you the opportunity of 4 different diving sessions. Land excursions are offered to our guest as there is so much to enjoy on the various islands we will pass.
These are example itineraries to give you an indication of the liveaboard cruises. The final cruise might be different due to weather, sea conditions and/or guest experience. The final call is always with the boat manager and the captain of the liveaboard. This to ensure your safety as well as to give you a dive holiday never to forget.
