LIFE ON BOARD
each to their own
The deck, spaciously structured with different zones, offers to each their own intimate space. It is ideal for guests to collectively share the high moments together, while offering to each a quiet corner to relax, read a book or chat quietly whether it be under sail or on a stopover.
varied meals and options
The three daily meals, inspired by regional specialities and prepared on board with fresh and local produce, will be served according to the ambience of the moment: as an open buffet on the deck, table service on the poop deck or in our charming saloon.
In order to make your encounters with the cetaceans more accessible, to diversify your activities and to give you the freedom to enjoy your stay, we have at your disposal snorkelling material as well as 2 family size canoes. Our tender is there to taxi you to and from the shore during our halts.
private cabin or berth
The layout on Norda is conceived in such a way that it can accommodate groups or families who wish to share common sleeping quarters as well as couples or individuals who wish to have their intimate space in a private cabin.
