M/V Mistral

Mistral, the 34m steel hulled vessel, joined the award winning fleet in May 2010.  Her state-of-the-art design was based on diver’s comfort and ease.

Mistral has four spacious double cabins, located on the upper deck and eight twin cabins on the lower deck.  Each cabin has an en-suite bathroom, individual controlled A/C, safety deposit box and bedside controlled music and lighting.

The restaurant and saloon area is situated on the main deck.  With bright modern décor, the restaurant provides a warm welcoming ambiance to enjoy the dining experience.

The saloon is a comfortable relaxing area ideal to view footage, images or watch a movie.

A large and spacious dive deck complete with a designated camera room makes her the number one choice for photographers.

A haskel pump ensures mixed gasses can be filled quickly and accurately making her completely tec friendly.
