Experience pristine South Pacific coral reefs at their most colourful whilst enjoying famous Fijian culture and friendliness.

Features

Nai’a has set new standards of liveaboard diving luxury in every way, especially in comfort and service. Designed by renowned marine architect, W. de Vries Lentsch, and built by skilled Dutch craftsmen, Nai’a was completely refitted in 2000 with the latest technology and facilities specific to the needs of discerning dive travelers. Nai’a’s sophisticated sailing rig affords her the range, comfort and stability of a true expeditionary vessel. Her large, diver-savvy Fijian crew is world-famous for their dedicated service, kava-inspired music and can-do attitude that makes for great flexibility as well as a great time.

The main saloon above deck is perhaps Nai’a’s most eye-catching feature, with the golden grains of native Fijian hardwoods whilst serious divers will appreciate the thoughtful layout of her roomy dive deck, complete with a dedicated dry camera and video room to suit the most discriminating photographers. Delicious and beautifully prepared meals of locally grown produce and meats and fresh fish await the hungry diver with a widely varied parade of delights served from the galley of the chefs, Manasa and Waisake. Truly the core of the Nai’a family is her Fijian crew, ten of the friendliest and most able sailors anywhere.
