The liveaboard NAI'A provides guests with all the comforts and more of a quality land-based location - but with far superior diving and a new view every day.
Family and Crew
The core of the NAI'A family is her Fijian crew. On each charter, you'll be cared for by fourteen of the friendliest and most able sailors anywhere. Fijians are among the warmest, most welcoming people on earth, so it is no wonder that NAI'A's clients consistently rate the crew as the very best in the business.
In addition to the Fijian crew you will get to know the Cruise Directors, passionate and well-travelled divers themselves, who are the bridge between the crew and the passengers. Their brief is very simple: notice what you want before you do and try to provide it. Vanessa and Chad have travelled extensively and have thousands of dives between them; so far they've been able to meet the brief pretty damn well...!

Manta rays to mantis shrimp, dolphins to dartfish, voracious sharks to vibrant soft corals: NAI’A delivers sights to satisfy the most saturated scuba diver.
NAI’A features nine passenger staterooms, a massive main salon, dive deck, sun deck, dedicated camera room and stern dive platform.
“NAI’A made a believer out of me! Fiji has been grossly underrated by both divers and scientists. Incredible fishes here and definitely worthy of protection.”
