Fiji liveaboard, the Nai'a cruising Bligh Water

Nai'a has both double and twin stateroom en-suite cabins. All are very large, timber-lined, bright, airy, and clean. The vessel is a 36 metre long deluxe steel hull motor yacht which goes under sail where possible, cruising around the islands of Fiji over clear blue water; an unforgettable experience in itself.

Explore the remarkably rich and diverse Bligh Water, with its lavish coral bommies, visit Mutiny Mount, the exclusive Wakaya Island channel, and the astonishing Nigali Passage. This area attracts many of the world's leading photographers and underwater film makers. The Nai'a often runs special photography trips and, due to its unrivalled reputation, attracts many names from the diving world, such a Stan Waterman, to join their Fiji liveaboards dispensing expert advice to fellow guests.

Nai'a provides complimentary dinner wine during evening meals.
