Liveaboards To The Southern Andamans

Liveaboards To The Southern Andamans

A Great Thailand Liveaboard Option If you’re Short On Time

Koh Ha, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang don’t get as much as the limelight as the more famous Similan Islands but you have no less of a chance of encountering manta rays and whale sharks here than you do further north. You won’t find many boats that sail this route but if you’re fortunate enough to be here when one does then it’s definitely worth a try.

Phi Phi is also considered the southern andaman. During our green season from June to October a couple of liveaboards run short trips around Koh Phi Phi and the Racha Islands. Great little trips that work out cost effective and maximise your dive sites in a few days.

Explore The South Andaman Sea Without The Crowds

The South Andaman dive sites can get a little busy at times. Avoid the crowds by joining these short liveabord safari's that will hit the dive sites when the day trippers are still in the minibus. A diverse range of dive sites spawn a diverse range of marine fauna from from macro at Koh Doc Mai to the giant manta's and whale sharks at Hin Daeng. All of the best Phuket dive sites in one short break!
