It should be mentioned that the entire belly of the boat is available for the crew, which is not at all a matter of course on other boats. There are several bathrooms and cabins available and in addition all employees get a flight home paid once a year.

No disposable water bottles. We have water dispensers with purified and mineralized water. Feel free to take your favorite water bottle with you. But you will get a bottle as a gift from us on arrival anyway :).

If you want to save a little space and weight when traveling: soap and shampoo are available from the dispenser in every bathroom.

Of course we bring our plastic waste back to the harbor. Furthermore, we regularly move out to make our contribution to less plastic on islands and reefs.

We may serve you with freshly tapped beer. This is not only a treat for the palate but also reduces the waste that would be created by cans.

Bar&Lounge Area

The bar area is the ideal place to relax after the dive in one of the wicker chairs or beanbags. Behind the bar Thomas, the bartender, serves you with freshly tapped beer, cocktails, wine, juices or soft drinks.


The spacious sundeck offers enough space to lie and linger in the shade or in the sun. At night, stars can be watched and if the weather permits, it is also possible to sleep there under the open sky.

Dive Dhoni

Diving is done from the dinghy, the so-called dhoni. This is 12 m long and 4 m wide and offers enough space for all divers. All diving equipment remains on the dhoni and thus no towing of equipment is necessary.
