Your Host: Milne Bay Enterprises Ltd T/A MV Chertan of Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea

Welcome to some of the finest scuba diving experiences in New Guinea, and some of the best opportunities to discover nature's most unusual creatures. Join us aboard the luxury dive vessel M.V. Chertan, captained by Rob van der Loos and his experienced, capable crew.

Please note the MV Chertan has undergone a MAJOR refit to include:

The two cabins in the front of the vessel have been combined to make 1 large cabin with a queen size bed and one single bunk. This cabin has been outfitted with its own bathroom and air conditioning unit. This cabin is ideal for a 3 member family or can be shared with two guys, or married couple.

The two middle cabins are currently fitted with their own toilets, no showers

The back two cabins remain the same.

Furthermore one bathroom has been turned around and now only has access from inside the vessel.

All guests now have direct access to the dive deck directly from the rear of the lounge.

The dive deck has been lengthened by almost four feet giving a lot more room to the deck.

Soon to be available again:

Living Reefs of the Indo-Pacific
a photographic guide by Rob van der Loos

Living Coral Reefs is a field guide to locating many of the smaller crittors living on the reefs that usually use a host animal. Many of the pages show a large photo of the host animal on the left hand side and on the right. Smaller photos showing what critters live with or on the larger host animal. Other chapters deal with critters in the MUCK. All photos were taken in Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea.
