Highlights

    • Outdoor lounge and BBQ area for relaxation
    • Dolphins and occasional sightings of orcas and whale sharks

The Oceania catamaran is ready for exciting luxury dive cruises in Papua New Guinea. Based at the Walindi Resort, Oceania accommodates up to 16 guests in 8 cabins. Each stateroom is fully air-conditioned and features a private en-suite bathroom, daily fresh towels, storage space, a hairdryer, and stunning ocean views. Guests can relax inside our common outdoor areas during their stay onboard Oceania. The indoor salon and dining room are on the main deck and air-conditioned for comfort. An outdoor lounge and BBQ area are on the same level, and the upper deck has room for sunbathing and al-fresco dining.

Located in the Coral Triangle, Papua New Guinea is at the center of marine biodiversity and home to pristine reefs, a wide variety of fish, and a wide range of shark species, including silky and hammerhead. Dolphins regularly accompany the boat to entertain divers, and there are also occasional sightings of orcas, whale sharks, and pilot whales passing by. Oceania has several itineraries that change with the seasons and weather patterns to allow for the best diving possible. The large dive deck at the back of the boat includes individual storage areas, a camera table, and a dive deck bathroom and shower. A dive tender is on hand to make getting to and from the dive sites easy and stress-free.

The Oceania catamaran is perfect for a fantastic dive liveaboard to Papua New Guinea.

Fish fest in the Bismarck Sea

Well run, comfortable boat with healthy reefs and easy diving. The Vitu Islands itinerary gives you a nice mix of reefs and muck dives, and though you are in quite a remote corner of the world, they do everything they can to make things as easy as possible. Keep in mind that for the time being, Visa on arrival is suspended, and local immigration can be slow and difficult to get a hold of. Plan for this.

Fish, muck diving, tasty dinners.
