NAI’A uses two rigid inflatable skiffs to provide uncrowded diving on a wide variety of reefs and seamounts with maximum flexibility to dive the way you choose.
NAI'A offers Enriched Air Nitrox (EAN) to divers who are certified to use Nitrox by any reputable training agency. We use a sophisticated high-capacity membrane system to achieve the standard 32% (NNI) mix. The NAI'A system and its operators are also capable of providing specific mixes between 21%-100% by special request for recreational or rebreather diving.
You can become certified as a PADI Nitrox Diver during your NAI'A cruise. The PADI course is succinct, interesting, simply presented and designed with traveling live-aboard divers in mind. The course involves approximately four hours of lectures culminating in an exam and you then have the option of using Nitrox immediately. If you would like to take the PADI Nitrox Diver course aboard NAI'A, please request this upon booking so that we can confirm the availability of the instruction during your chosen cruise date.
Nitrox and Dive Computers
Many people like to dive Nitrox using a programmable-mix Nitrox computer to achieve the maximum bottom-time benefits that the gas allows at depths shallower than 130 feet. NAI'A has Nitrox diving computers available for rental use. However, it is not necessary to own or rent a Nitrox computer to use Nitrox successfully or safely. In fact, many recreational divers choose an air computer with Nitrox to profit from the considerable extra safety margin that the gas provides as well as the significant benefits in energy and alertness. The most commonly cited advantage by Nitrox users is that they feel less fatigued and suffer from fewer headaches over repetitive dives on multi-day dive trips. That is, Nitrox divers often feel like diving more!

Fiji’s many pristine deep reefs are perfect for rebreather divers who dive deeper to see giant gorgonian coral and sometimes schooling hammerhead sharks.

“I have just had a marvellous 10 days aboard Nai'a. As usual, your Fijian crew are rather special, and all the other guests felt the same. It was so great to be aboard again.”
