In addition, each stateroom has twin beds that can be converted to comfortable queen beds for couples, and include private bath and shower facilities, dressers, and closets. When not dreaming about whale sharks and their next dive, guests can enjoy the air-conditioned salon on the main deck, furnished with dining tables and TV/lounge area. Sunning and viewing areas on the top deck offer ample seating and a hot tub where you can regale stories of hammerheads from your day. 
 
This contemporary liveaboard is equipped with all amenities avid divers could need. The dive deck is expansive and outfitted with individual gear bins, air, and nitrox filling stations, tank racks, and a separate fresh water rinse tank for underwater camera equipment. Photographers and videographers will also be delighted with the dedicated camera table and recharging stations.

Plus, its equipped with a satellite telephone for emergency calls worldwide.
