Boat Description

Chertan is a liveaboard operating in the stunning Papua New Guinea. Just 10 guests are accommodated in 5 cabins - making it perfect for families or small groups. The Executive room sleeps 3 people and has an en suite bathroom. The two Middle Deluxe cabins have 2 single beds, toilet and sink. The 2 Standard Base cabins have 2 single beds and share toilets and showers with the boat bathrooms. The stylishly wooden panelled lounge and dining room has seating area, bar and TV for looking at the days photos. Papua New Guinea is a remote diving paradise. This large archipelago of islands is ideal for the more experienced diver looking to try something new. At sites like Wahoo Point and Cobb's Cliff you can encounter large pelagic species such as hammerhead sharks, manta rays, whale sharks, Minke whales and orcas. The macro life is also world famous with plenty to see on muck dives in locations like Sponge Heaven and Little China: nudibranch, ghost pipefish, shrimp and cephalopod galore!
