The lounge offers all the amenities you would expect on a luxurious liveaboard nowadays. Free Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the ship. Outdoor recreational spaces include a sky bar on the sun deck and a covered outside dining area at the rear of the main deck. A crew of 12 speaks English and French and takes care of all your needs assuring a happy untroubled holiday.
A chef and sous-chef prepare delicious fresh food every day. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet style with an abundance of dishes. The diner is à la carte with gourmet varieties of international and local origin. Picnics on the beach will add to the adventurous charm of our cruises. Dietary restrictions can be catered for if our crew is notified in advance.
The ship is so spacious and quiet because all diving operations take place from the specialized dive dhoni. It stores the air-compressor as well as all equipment. There’s a team of 3 diving guides to assure you have a personal-oriented experience. 2 or 3 dive opportunities are proposed each day plus a night dive during the week. Some dives around the coral reefs are tranquil at shallow depth, others are more sporting in relatively deep and lively waters. In all instances, the dhoni will remain close by to pick you up when you surface. Rental gear, nitrox and diving courses are available.
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.
