Kiana – Sail & Dive Adventures
Departs 8:30 am Monday + Friday
Sail and Dive the Whitsunday Islands and Outer Great Barrier Reef on the 16.4m ketch Kiana. The below decks are fitted out for maximum comfort for 14 passengers. Enjoy the comfort of air-conditioning, large roomy saloon areas and comfortable cabins. Above deck, there’s lots of room for gearing up to go diving, snorkelling or relaxing in the sun. Their skipper, hostess and dive instructor will ensure you enjoy the best of both worlds, sailing and diving by day great food and a relaxed atmosphere in the evenings.
Fully Equipped for Diving including Compressor
Kiana is fully equipped for both snorkelling and scuba diving so all you need to bring is a smile. Kiana has an onboard high-capacity dive compressor so your diving will not be limited to the number of spare scuba tanks that can be carried as is the case with most sail and dive vessels.
Maximum 14 Passengers and Crew of 3
Kiana carries a maximum of 14 passengers ensuring that their guests are never crowded. Their crew consists of a qualified Skipper, Dive Instructor and Cook/Deckhand. A crew of three ensures that Kiana’s guests never lack attention.
All meals are prepared onboard Kiana from fresh ingredients. Their unique “marine hangi” (pronounced hungry) will satisfy the gourmet within you. The Hangi is a traditional New Zealand Maori method of cooking in an earth oven. On Kiana, they have adapted this concept with their own marine version.
Roomy Air-conditioned Interior
Being a deep draft vessel Kiana is particularly roomy below decks. Air-conditioning provides comfortable temperatures in the heat of the tropics. The quality of Kiana’s teak finish provides an ambience that cannot be matched by plastic alternatives.
Kiana has single and double accommodations in shared cabins. If you require more privacy they have private twin cabins available for a small extra charge.
Kiana has two large bathrooms with electric toilets and freshwater showers. Their high-capacity hot water system ensures that hot water is always available.
Kiana has many extras that help to improve the quality of your adventure. For example, Kiana’s galley is fully electric with a dishwasher and microwave/conventional oven. And they even have a Clothes Dryer onboard for those days when you need a dry towel.
Large Permanently Shaded Aft Deck
The tropical sun can be very severe, particularly on those with fair skin from cooler climates. Kiana provides the best of both worlds with ample deck space for sun baking and a huge permanently shaded rear deck where you can cool off. The rear deck also provides protection from the elements on those rare occasions when there is a tropical rain shower.
