Our vessel


The vessel allows for a unique and unforgettable voyage in terms of the experience and quality of service and diving. Eight comfortable cabins each with private en-suite bathroom, hot and cold water, air conditioning which may be individually controlled and plenty of electrical outlets give you all you need.

 

The master and superior cabins on the main deck have windows whilst the lower deck cabins have portholes that allow for natural light and the enjoyment of sunrise and sunset.

 

Most time however will be spent out on deck enjoying the fresh air from on the afterdeck, sundeck and dive platform. Or you can relax in the lounge, enjoy a drink at the bar or have some quiet time working on photos, reading or just meditating.

 

All dives are carried out by panga, (tender) giving us easy access to all the dive locations.

 

The on-board chef prepares three delicious meals a day, with international and Ecuadorian fare. Snacks and fresh fruit are always available.
