Golden Dawn

MV Golden Dawn Ext1 opt786

The 80-foot (24-meter) Golden Dawn is strong as an ox yet very comfortably appointed.  she covers much of the most remote territory in PNG and is currently offering custom charters only.

"Craig de Wit likes to explain that he can trace his ancestry back to an 11th century Dutch pirate.  I figure that's got to make him one of the best captains out there!  He knows the waters of PNG as well as anyone and plans & executes itineraries which take you to the most remote & far flung corners of this captivating nation."   ...   Dominick Macan

Private charter only

The lovely Golden Dawn takes only 10 divers, making her extremely popular with divers who truly want to get away from it all and experience Paradise with a select few companions.

Golden Dawn also offers all the best scuba equipment including nitrox, re-breathers & re-breather training (not included in the base rate). She carries 2 kayaks for your enjoyment and has satellite telephone, fax and email.

Between dives you'll enjoy the scenery-surround from either the shaded sundeck or the forward deck where you can catch some rays or relax inside where you'll find a super library of marine books plus audio-visual equipment, all in the inviting interior decorated in beautiful native woods.
