Liveaboards in Fiji

Fiji is known as the Soft Coral Capital of the World, and for good reason. Here, the blossoming corals are just as plentiful as they are beautiful, and that’s saying something. The best choice for navigating the many dive locations in Fiji is a liveaboard, and since the coasts are often fairly shallow – boat is often the best way to go.

Nai`a has set new standards of liveaboard diving luxury in every way, especially in comfort and service. Designed by renowned marine architect, W. de Vries Lentsch, and built by skilled Dutch craftsmen, NAI`A was completely refitted in 1993 and again in 2000 with the latest technology and facilities specific to the needs discerning dive travelers. This extremely spacious liveaboard provides for 18 guests (maximum) with all the creature comforts of a quality land-based resort – including hot showers and cool staterooms – but with superior diving and a new view every day!
