Tea and coffee and water are available at all times during the day and offered with our compliments. Meals are taken in the main saloon and the saloon has a nice open feeling with windows all around. Our boats are well-known for the excellent quality of food served on board and there is a good variety of both local and European dishes. If guests are vegetarian or have special dietary needs, we will, of course, do our best to cater for them. Breakfast and lunch are normally served buffet style and dinner is generally a served meal. Subject to weather conditions, we also like to have barbeques on the main deck and sometimes ashore at a beach.

Dive Support Vessel

To dive safely and to reach the best dive points in and around the narrow channels and shallow reefs, you need a special type of boat adapted to these local conditions. Our Dive Support vessel is 14m (45ft) long and comfortably seats 16 divers each with their own storage bin. Equipment is assembled and remains in place on the dive boat making this really easy comfortable diving. Cylinders are filled by the two onboard K14 compressors and nitrox 30 percent from our on-board blending system is available on request at additional cost. The sides of the vessel are low and only a simple step-in entry from one of the six exits points is needed for diving. At the end of the dive, it's easy to pull yourself up the stable stainless steel ladder back onboard the dive support boat. Crew are attentive at all times helping with equipment and precious camera gear.
