West Papua liveaboard, Amira

The vessel is elegantly furnished with wood panelling throughout that enhances the feeling of luxury. There are double and single cabins on the upper deck and twin bed cabins on the lower deck. All of these high standard, spacious cabins have private en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning.

The large dive deck has been designed to give each diver plenty of room and their own individual storage space. Diving is conducted from one of the 3 dinghies, each equipped with radio and emergency oxygen tanks. In addition each diver wears an ENOS locator device for safety purposes, and nitrox is available to those who are certified.

When not diving or enjoying one of the delicious meals, guests can relax in the air-conditioned TV lounge area, in the shaded open-air area, or on the huge sundeck equipped with chairs and loungers for sun-lovers. The attentive, enthusiastic staff are always on hand to see to your every need.

Other facilities include a massage service, dedicated camera room with storage area, an internet facility (available in harbour only) and computer room with CD/DVD burning facilities to edit and save your photos. If you like to travel in style and enjoy the finer things in life on your Indonesia liveaboard diving holiday then a stay onboard the Amira is perfect for you.
