The MV Ambai is a new 32 meters boat started operations in July 2012. She receives up to 16 divers in absolute comfort. Traditionally built from Iron wood and other tropical hard wood, the boat is however especially designed to offer the best liveaboard diving cruise experience.
Ambai Liveaboard has 8 boutique cabins with individually controlled air conditioning and ensuite bathrooms with hot water. An inside lounge and restaurant, large shadow deck areas and a Sun deck complete the common parts.
Photographers will enjoy a dedicated room for the maintenance and preparation of their camera, as well as a large screen in the lounge to share pictures and videos. At the rear of the deck, a large dive deck extended by a platform offers an easy and direct access to the three dive tenders.
Last but not least, the staff aboard the Ambai is always ready to provide you the best service at anytime. All you need to do is to enjoy the dives, and let them take care of the rest – even loading and unloading your heavy diving equipment! – Ambai offer free Nitrox to qualified Nitrox divers.
