Narayana, Philippines


Specially designed for Tubbataha liveaboard diving, the Narayana yacht caters to up to 14 guests in 8 cozy cabins. Each cabin features private en-suite bathrooms, individually controlled AC and storage space, and offers the choice of either queen size double or twin bunk beds. The 6 double cabins located on the middle deck also have their own private balcony, perfect for relaxing in-between dives. Meals are served buffet-style at the indoor dining room and are a mix of western and local dishes. Social areas include the outdoor dining and lounge area and sun deck.

Philippine liveaboard dive cruises aboard the Narayana visit the Tubbataha National Park from March - June and El Nido, Coron & Apo Reef from October - December. Diving in Tubbataha reef is only accessible via liveaboard and is fast becoming known as one of the best places to dive in the Philippines. With over 600 species of fish, 11 species of shark, and 13 species of dolphins and whales, it's easy to see why. These trips fill up fast, so it's advisable to book in advance. The National Park of Apo Reef is home to the largest reef system in the Philippines, and full of marine life large and small, offering excellent diving. Add to this the wrecks of Coron and pristine waters of El Nido and you will have a fantastic dive trip.

Tubbataha is nice and Narayana is a safe and economical way to explore it

Narayana exceeded my expectations. Although the dive deck is pretty crowded, the crew tried their best to make diving convenient to everyone. The rooms have huge panoramic windows, the A/C at night works great, the food is mostly Philippine, which is perfect, as it gives an opportunity to explore new flavors. And the diving was very nice: beautiful corals, plenty of fishes, great visibility…
