Astrea Yacht

Astrea

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Astrea  Explorer is a 16-passenger motor yacht, originally constructed in 1998, and refurbished in 2012. Passengers are accommodated 8 double cabins, all with air-conditioning and private bathrooms, and the yacht also includes a spacious dining area, lounge and bar, TV, computer, as well as both open and shaded sundeck areas. This yacht is somewhat of a rarity in that in runs two very different types of itinerary - one week is a scuba diving tour and the next is a tour of the islands with Naturalist guides. The yacht is fully equipped for diving tours, including a camera rinse tank and table, as well as nitrox being available and there will be specialist marine guides also present. This yacht is definitely an interesting choice, depending on your preference for marine life or the flora and fauna of the islands themselves!
