    The 24m Inula Catamaran is a unique liveaboard scheduling year round diving cruises to the islands and islets in the Gulf of Chiriqui, Panama. Inula can accommodate up to 9 passengers in four twin cabins and two single cabins. Space inside the small twin cabins is limited and these are typically offered for single accommodation. As such, guests aboard the Inula receive personal attention from the 4 member crew.

    Food is in abundance onboard and features a combination of European and Central American cuisine. Guests will also enjoy fresh tropical fruit and salads served buffet style. Depending on conditions and location, diving may take place on Inula or from the dive tender. Either way, diving with Inula offers scuba divers the opportunity to discover a staggering number of fish. White tip reef sharks, clouds of big eye jacks, schools of hammerheads and barracuda, huge manta rays, humpback whales and massive groupers can all be found here. And you are likely not to see another dive boat during the entire journey.

    An Inula Catamaran Panama liveaboard diving holiday is a fantastic adventure. Book today.
