Featured Trip Report
Cocos liveaboard, MV Adventure

Accommodating up to 20 guests on board in comfort, this liveaboard offers 4 dives a day and with free nitrox you can really make the most of the incredible underwater action of Cocos.

Between dives you can relax in the saloon/dining area which features TV, DVD player, music system and computer with internet (so you don't have to be out of touch, even somewhere so remote). The long crossing is made easier by the comfort of the saloon and there is a movie library as well as a generous array of books and magazines, both marine-related and general interest. The guests sleep in cabins which are either double/twin or triple share, all with air conditioning and ensuite facilities.

Divers will appreciate the features of the dive deck which include 20 individual storage spaces, 2 showers, 2 rinse tanks and a camera table. Safety is emphasised by the use of mini personal diver locators, plus each cabin stores life jackets and a fire extinguisher. If you are seeking comfort style and adventure on a Cocos liveaboard then consider the MV Adventure.
