The Yemaya has a very large indoor salon which displays plenty of cozy seating options. Plus, there’s a big flat screen television which has all the wires needed to plug in your camera so you can view your best shots of the day! Also, there’s a DVD player as well as an extensive DVD and board games library.
Moreover, the dining room is located outside, in a completely covered area with the side open. Indeed, you can enjoy the view, the fresh aire while eating delicious and freshly prepared dishes.

Scuba Diving with the MV Yemaya
The Cocos Island of Costa-Rica, the Malpelo Island of Colombia and the Coiba Island of Panama are all UNESCO world heritage sites. Most noteworthy is that they are part of the same submerged mountain chain as the famous Galapagos Islands are.

Indeed, that’s how it should always be when scuba diving, but this dive vessel makes it even more important. Of course, the dive masters and guides are highly experienced and they will assist you in this adventure. Finally, the Yemaya is equipped with all the latest scuba diving technologies and the diving is done mostly from the diving tender.
