infiniti new exterior shot opt 3

The Infiniti, a 39-meter (133-foot) steel vessel, accommodates 22 guests in 11 cabins. Her itineraries include Tubbataha, Visayas, Bohol, Malapascua, Leyte & Wrecks of Coron.

 

A word from Dom :  “The Infiniti, after a successful tenure in the Andaman Islands, moved to the Philippines where she adds a mid-sized option to the previous mix of liveaboards.  Although the cabins are frankly a bit 1970’s, she has lots of deck space, nice interior living areas and the crew runs a very good operation.”…… Dominick Macan
