Spirit of Niuguini

Spiritof Niugini Ext1b optSpirit of Niugini at 115 feet ( 35 meters) has comfortable accommodation for 16 passengers in 8 staterooms.  She offers diving itineraries in Milne Bay, with its spectacular corals & critters.

"Although I haven't had a chance to see the Spirit since her 2016 refit, one of my diving buddies was on her & brought back a good report.  "Boat looks nice after the big refurb last year.  Cabins were gutted and replaced completely.  More room onboard than on other boats in PNG and she has a proper sun deck, two lounges, outer and indoor dining."   She's always been a good solid choice and I'm more than happy to recommend her ... especially given her new  "snazzy" look !"  ....
