Description

MV Oceania is a 27 meter catamaran, newly-built to escort 16 guests around the hidden gems of Papua New Guinea 

This liveaboard will visit Kimbe Bay, Witu Islands and Fathers Reefs out of Walindi Plantation Resort in the Bismarck Sea.

This route will show you a fantastic cross section of what Papua New Guinea (PNG) has to offer. Imagine coral gardens, sea mounts, reef walls, arches and overhanging ledges. The muck diving possibilities are endless and it is common to see dolphins and turtles during your voyage. 

This vessel is fitted with modern navigational and safety equipment, large water and fuel tanks and air-conditioning in all areas of the boat. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

For divers and photographers who want a total PNG dive experience, MV Oceania specialises in combining excellent service and meals with as much bottom time as possible. Non-divers and snorkelers are welcome to join, however this itinerary is very dive focused with no land based breaks. Most dive sites are not suitable for snorkelers due to their depth. 

The cabins have been custom built to include plenty of storage area and make maximum use of the space available. Each comes with individually controlled air-conditioning units and en-suite facilities. The main communal areas are the dining area, dive deck and upper sun deck.

Meals are a blend of Western and Asian cuisines with healthy portion sizes. Seafood, beef, fruit and vegetables are sourced locally. Dietary requests are accommodated wherever possible (advance notice required).

How to Get There

Please refer to logistics section of each itinerary to find detailed info on how to get there.
