MV Chertan Liveaboard offers a once in a life time untouched SCUBA diving experience in PNG! Seeing anything from the smallest rarest of Nudies to the weird and wonderful creatures that are attracted to the rich ecosystems of the surrounding areas. While aboard we may also stumble across the largest of the large Pelagic trophies such as Mantas, Hammerheads, Dugongs and Whale Sharks!


Join us on our island hopping tours and experience the true magic of Papua New Guinea. You'll visit the local pristine white sandy beaches on remote uninhabited islands and on selected trips, also bush walks can be arranged to visit the beautiful birds of paradise. For those who dare, come and explore the eerie Skull Cave and take a leap back in time to learn about the historic culture surrounding cannibalism in Papua New Guinea.
