NAI’A offers world-class scuba diving on remote pristine reefs. Divers experience amazing diving only accessible by liveaboard, such as the Bligh Waters and Koro Sea.

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 and 2010 with the latest technology and facilities specific to the needs discerning dive travelers. This extremely spacious ship 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! NAI’A’s sophisticated sailing rig affords her the range, comfort and stability of a true expeditionary vessel. Her large, diver-savvy Fijian crew is world-famous for their dedicated service, kava-inspired music and can-do attitude that makes for great flexibility as well as a great time!

7-day and 10-day charters are available. All depart and end in Lautoka, just north of Nadi. Contact us for schedules and availability.

NAI'A has accommodation for 18 passengers in 9 air-conditioned staterooms with private ensuite heads. Eight of the staterooms were entirely rebuilt in 2010. Three staterooms have queen-size beds that can be configured as individual singles, two have both a queen and a single bunk above, two have only a queen, and two have twin bunk beds. All the staterooms are larger than those on most dive vessels, with plenty of stowage for gear, and they are bright, airy, and comfortable. While camera and strobe charging is best done in the camera room, each room has both 110 and 220 volt power.

The "NAI'A Triangle" of Lomaiviti, Bligh Water and Namena is the focus of their regular itineraries, covering about 500 nautical miles. Lomaiviti's coral reefs and islands are some of Fiji's most dynamic and varied: voracious sharks to vibrant soft corals.

After an initial "checkout" dive on the afternoon of boarding, NAI'A heads north and east around the flank of the main island of Viti Levu to reach Bligh Water. Several different dive sites in Bligh Water are available including Vatu-i-ra, E6, Mt. Mutiny, and Cat's Meow, depending on localized weather conditions. Generally the NAI’A visits the islands and barrier reefs of Namena, Wakaya, and Gau. On ten-day charters there is more time available to dive the various reefs in the Koro Sea, some of them near Namena and others near nowhere!

As some of the best dive sites are a long way from shore bases, only the some of best-equipped live-aboard diving vessels such as the NAI’A can access these locations. Much of the area remains uncharted and the dive sites untouched. All this makes NAI'A dive sites in the NAI'A Triangle of Lomaiviti, Namena and Bligh Water largely exclusive. You are extremely unlikely to encounter another dive boat during a NAI'A trip -- it will feel like your own private pristine Fiji.

NAI’A also offers Skiff Diving, Nitrox Diving, and Rebreather Diving.
