Aqua Tiki II

Aqua Tiki II is a Eleuthera catamaran more than 18 meters long with 5 cabins. On board, the feel is similar to a small hotel. You will find a spacious saloon with dining area and a reading lounge near the bar where cocktails are served each evening. A cockpit, protected from the sun by a huge awning, is equipped with a fixed table which can seat 8 passengers, and where meals are served. The boat is also equipped with a plancha grill for  evening barbecues. Two trampolines forward welcome you to enjoy sunlight ...

3 professional crew are permanently on board. A hostess provides meals and service on board, while a professional skipper and BEES diving instructor organize the cruise and land and water activities. The number of passengers is limited to 8 divers maximum to keep an optimum comfort and usability. Aqua Tiki II has all the comfort you can expect: sound system, HD LED TV, Blue Ray and a small library.

The vessel is completely autonomous with fresh water: more than 800 liters in its reserve, with a big water maker. A powerful generator and inverter provide electricity on board, delivering continuous 220V with 220V European outlets, 24h/24 in each cabin! Two diving compressors, a dinghi for 8 divers, water sports equipments (water skiing, wake boarding) and 2 kayaks for a walk in the lagoons, complete the picture. Many shore excursions, zodiac or kayaking are possible.

Aqua Tiki II has been specially designed and built for diving in the Tuamotu Islands. A 5,5 meters long dinghi allows a safe entry/exit for/from all dives. Two long dives per day are organized. Both 12 and 15 liters are available on board (both DIN and INT). The dives and meals schedule is adapted to daily tide times to offer you the best of diving conditions. Photographers and videographers are welcome aboard!
