Built in 2016, the Natural Paradise was well designed, making the most of their four decks with plenty of outdoor leisure space including a full length sun deck featuring a barbecue alfresco dining area and an eight-person Jacuzzi.

All nine cabins are well furnished with either two twin beds or one matrimonial bed (suites are king size). In addition they contain plenty of storage space, private bathroom, hot water and air conditioning. Indoor and outdoor social areas and lounges provide plenty of options for relaxing in your downtime, while your naturalist guide answers any questions about the wildlife, biology and geology of the islands in nightly meetings.

During the day you'll enjoy a variety of excursions including hiking, snorkelling and dinghy rides, giving visitors a variety of unique experiences.


A big bonus of the Natural Paradise are the exceptionally large cabins for the boat's price point. Ranging from 16 to 32 sq m, guests will enjoy plenty of space in addition to modern amenities and in the case of suites, private balconies.
