MV FeBrina, together with skipper/owner Alan Raabe, has been working in Papua New Guinea waters since 1991 when the vessel arrived at Walindi Resort. The quality diving experience MV FeBrina offers can be quantified by the high number of repeat clientele she enjoys.
FeBrina cruises from her home port, Walindi Plantation Resort, visiting areas further afield such as Witu Islands, Fathers Reefs, South Coast New Britain and Rabaul. FeBrina's signature itinerary is Kimbe Bay, Witu Islands and Fathers Reefs which is offered in April, May and June, September, October and November.
During July and August, FeBrina operates mid year itineraries, diving Kimbe Bay, Fathers Reefs and Lolobau Island. Selected mid year itineraries travel from Walindi to Rabaul and return. January, February and March see FeBrina exploring the Southern Coast of New Britain, based out of Rabaul. On selected itineraries during the year, the boat also visits the New Hanover area up towards Kavieng.
The areas FeBrina dives are home to prolific and diverse marine creatures and corals. Each area has it's speciality, and most of the cruises cover at least two and often more destinations allowing many different types of diving in the one voyage.
Most diving is from FeBrina's very well laid out dive deck, with easy access via the water level dive platform. Some of the reefs are current washed .... without current the spectacular marine life would not be there, however, the wide range of dive sites in each area means that it is not necessary to dive at a site if currents are unmanageable at the time.
FeBrina is a very comfortable and stable vessel, offering seven, roomy, air conditioned cabins, all with en-suite facilities, in a combination of double, twin and single configurations for a maximum of 12 divers. The well laid out dive deck and water level duck board make your diving a breeze. With permanent moorings on most dive sites, your gear all set up and ready for you and an attentive dive crew on hand to assist with camera gear, diving couldn't be easier.
