The dining saloon in the centre of the vessel serves as a meals area, briefing area, theatre room and general meeting place. All guests can be comfortably seated in this room. The 42 inch wide screen TV is often the focus of attention for briefings, movies or documentaries, or the trip slide show. This is also an area that many people use to work on their laptops, and with wireless internet available (when in range), this is a great place to send emails home about your day’s diving adventures.
The bar contains a good range of quality Australian & New Zealand wines, plus beer, UDL spirits and soft drinks, all at very reasonable prices. Our crew are happy to serve you, or if they are performing other duties, you are most welcome to serve yourself. We use an honour system for all your purchases during the cruise, so there is no need to worry about payment until the last night of your trip. On our scheduled dive trips, the house wine and soft drinks are included during your evening meal.
The top deck is a great place to relax between dives, with undercover and open areas containing timber tables, chairs, comfortable lounge seating and sun-lounges. Here you can relax with a book, take a quick snooze, catch some sun rays, or share stories of the marine life you encountered on the last dive. It is also a great place in the evening, where you can enjoy a quiet drink or get together with fellow divers. During your trip we always plan at least one alfresco BBQ dinner on the top deck.
The dive deck contains individual stations for 26 guests with dry storage above and a storage box under for every 2 divers.
