Diving on the Norseman in Italy 

Norseman liveaboard

The Norseman is a splendid liveaboard that looks like a ‘PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN’ ship when the sails are hoisted. This traditional wooden vessel will take you to some amazing dive sites in the Tuscan Archipelago. The Norseman is best known for fining hidden anchorages and concealed coves. This small vessel only accommodates six guests which mean you won’t have to worry about the liveaboard being overcrowded. Some of the great marine life you will see are an octopus, nudibranchs, sardines, amberjacks, and many more.

Interior and relaxation areas

The Norseman has the capacity to house up to six people in three bunk-style cabins. These cabins only have the bare necessities for a good night’s rest. In the cabins, you will have access to fans and all of the guests will share bathrooms.

As for relaxation you can chill in the salon area that has comfortable sofas positioned in a U-shape. You can also head to the hull of the boat which doubles as the sun deck and you can soak up some vitamin D.

Dive deck on the liveaboard

The Norseman may not be the biggest liveaboard but it makes up for that with a professional and friendly crew. You will find the dive area has a ladder leading down to the dive sites. There is Nitrox onboard for certified divers.

Food on the Norseman

The food on the Norseman is well prepared and you will serve three meals each day. The meals will be internationally and fresh Cuban inspired dishes. Meals will be served in the dining area where everyone will be served together. There will also be snacks served throughout the day.


With this liveaboard, you will get to explore some of the best dive sites in the Tuscan Archipelago. A normal dive itinerary will last for 6 nights. The liveaboard prides itself on finding the best-hidden anchorages and secluded coves.
