MV Andaman

3 Days/3 Nights From THB 16,600

MV Andaman Is a Great Choice For Your Similan Island Adventure

MV Andaman only takes 20 guests, which is surprising for a boat of its size. They’ve used the space available incredibly well, you’ll never feel crowded in the 5 areas to relax in between dives. The common areas are spread over 3 decks, the most popular spot being the split level sundeck.

Don’t worry if you’re not a sun lover, ample shaded space is readily available. Hammocks, bean bags, sun mattresses or just simple cushioned benches around tables let you relax the way you want.

The regular team of 6 boat crew and 5 guides have been together a while so a very smooth cruise is ensured. The experienced and friendly guides give you the best chance of seeing just what the Similan and Surin Islands have to offer

Your diving fuel is fresh cooked onboard. Plenty of variety with multiple options of Thai and western fare available at every meal. Snacks and fresh fruit are always available so you won’t go hungry. On the final evening MV Andaman staff will prepare a BBQ and cocktail evening, a very popular part of a great trip.

MV Andaman cabins are all air-conditioned and come in three configurations. Two ensuite double, two standard double and two 6 berth cabins. All have a full sized windows so everyone has a view. Three communal toilets are shared between 16 guests so it will be rare that you’ll have to wait any significant length of time.

Safety Features

MV Andaman has very high safety standards so everything you might require incase of emergency is provided. 2x Life Rafts, GPS, VHF radio, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, 100% oxygen, first aid kit, lifejackets, and a dinghy. All dive staff are emergency first aid trained so there’s plenty of help readily available.

Flexible Schedule

Quite a unique schedule allows divers to stay onboard for 3,4,7 or even eleven nights. You will repeat some dive sites on the longer trips but who wouldn’t want to spend as much time as possible at Richelieu Rock!

Trips depart and return from Khao Lak or a few miles further north at Khuraburi Harbour. Both are convenient places to start your Similan Island liveaboard safari.

This allows divers to stay for just 1 Night/2 Days if you’re on a tight schedule or even just a two dive day trip. Both boats [...]

A scattering of white sand beaches and impressive granite formations top off the stunning scenery. Diving in Similan islands will probably be the highlight of your Phuket adve [...]

Dazzling colour changes and perfect camouflage make octopus a favourite with everybody diving in Phuket but how do they perform this magic trick, well it's not mirrors, sorcery or witchcraft it's a complex combination of muscle, nerves, brain and skin pigments. By far the most common octopus we see when diving in Phuket is the day octopus (octopus cyanea) so we'll base our facts around this very convenient creature (we don't do night dives). [...]
