Liveaboards

Nai'a


Nai'a is a really beautiful vessel! (Nai'a)

Designed specifically for keen divers and underwater photographers, the elegant and luxurious MV Nai’a (Hawaiian for ‘dolphin’), widely considered one of the world’s top liveaboards, explores the remote reefs north and east of Viti Levu as well as the most spectacular soft coral sites of Namena island south of Vanua Levu. The 36-metre luxury Nai’a is designed to carry up to 18 guests in 9 spacious, air-conditioned, twin-berth staterooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. The dive deck has bench seating and plenty of storage space for gear as well as hangers for wetsuits. Once you have set up your gear on arrival, with the exception of mask, fins, snorkel and cameras, the crew will handle and manage your gear for the rest of the cruise. Underwater photographers are particularly well catered for on board Nai’a. An enclosed, dedicated camera room with tiered tables for the storage, servicing and recharging (both 110V/220V) of camera equipment is forward of the dive deck. Two large fresh-water tanks are available for camera/video gear. A multi-system Sony monitor is available in the main salon for videographers.

The crew of Nai’a are well-known for their expertise in diving management. Divers can usually expect four guided dives daily (including night diving) with two custom-built skiffs to drop and pick up divers at exactly the right place. Diving is truly ‘unlimited’ if you wish. Computers are encouraged as the Nai’a diving protocol is tailored to the needs of the more experienced diver. Nitrox is available.
