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.
Designed and built in Holland by the world’s finest steel yacht craftsmen, NAI’A is 120ft long and 30ft wide with nine passenger staterooms and room for 14 crew. A solid expeditionary ship, she has the range and stability to sail the far reaches of the Pacific and has travelled from her base in Fiji to Vanuatu and New Caledonia, Tonga, Samoa, Tuvalu, Funafuti and the Phoenix Islands in Kiribati.
NAI'A has accommodation for 18 passengers in 9 air-conditioned staterooms with private ensuite heads. All the staterooms were entirely rebuilt in 2010 and are larger than those on most dive vessels with plenty of stowage for gear. They are bright, airy, and comfortable and have both 110v and 220v power.

After each dive you can rinse your camera gear in our two large fresh water dip tanks, then stow and service it in the adjacent camera room where compressed air is at your fingertips for cleaning and drying parts.
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.
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.
“Fiji is a hot spot of biodiversity. We’re here for the rich colorful soft coral reefs as well as the unusual stuff - the strange little creatures and endemic fishes.”
