The ocean-going ship can load supplies for up to 30 days and carries passengers mainly to Cocos Island. As a perfect blend of work vessel and modern yacht the ship was specifically designed for long-range expeditions like those to Malpelo and Cocos Island. Divers enjoy sufficient storage for both dive gear and technical equipment like cameras.

The sun deck and the lounge with the adjacent dining area allows you to relax between and after dives. Depending on wind and weather conditions, the approximately 32-hour transfer may include some pitch and toss and a rather rough crossing. Have your general practitioner advise you on the right sea sickness treatment for you in advance!
