Cenderawasih Bay liveaboard, MV Panunee

There are 9 cabins with shared bathroom facilities and 2 with a Queen bed and en-suite bathrooms. The boat can accommodate 20 guests, or 22 on a full charter, yet still manages to retain quite a spacious feel.

The dive deck is quite roomy, with individual spaces helping to avoid congestion, and features a camera table and separate rinse tanks and air hoses for photographic equipment. Elsewhere you can always find space on the sundeck upstairs where you can soak in the rays, relaxing in comfort on sun cushions.

On the main deck of the liveaboard you will find the air-conditioned saloon which features all the entertainment facilities you might hope for, such as TV, DVD and music system, plus a well-stocked movie library.

Bottled soft drinks are free throughout the trip, ensuring you will never go thirsty, and the portions of fresh food should keep you well fed. Meals are buffet style and enjoyed in the open air restaurant area.

From June to January, MV Panunee operates in Indonesia, and January to May dives in Myanmar, the Similan Islands and the Andaman Islands. This means the crew of the Panunee are used to scuba diving in some of Asia's finest regions and will be delighted to share the experience with you.
