Welcome on board

Relax on the trampolines, sip a cold glass of wine, and sample delicious fresh food as dolphins play around the bow. Or chill out with a good book in the spacious shaded area at the stern of the vessel.

We have a 20hp rigid tender, as well as a 23ft 60hp Fiji long boat to ensure we can reach those far out diving and fishing spots. This gives you the freedom to pick the activity you want, when you want.
