Available For Charter
Comfortable, safe and economical, our ship Helena is suitable for researchers, group tours and family adventure voyages. Whether it be exploring, snorkelling, beach combing or research dives, we can cater for you.
The Helena’s main engine is sufficiently powerful to maintain cruising speed against the often strong tides around the Islands of Raja Ampat and her main hold can carry a large amount of equipment. We have previous experience chartering for research with dive facilities available on request.
