A Similan Islands Liveaboard With Real Class

MV Dive Race Class E is the latest Thailand liveaboard to cruise the Similan and Surin Island National Parks. Constructed in 2015 to international standards this 34.5m by 7.5m steel hull ocean going vessel was designed with stability and comfort in mind allowing longer trips to Myanmar and the South Andaman sites of Hin Daeng and Hin Muang.

Built by divers for divers this luxury class vessel has a very comfortable air-conditioned entertainment area for guests to enjoy movies and games, a huge sundeck with an outdoor sofa to chill and enjoy the stunning island scenery. The dive deck is spacious and allows easy access to the large dive platform although most of the diving is conducted from the dinghy.

The cabins are top notch, plenty of space and the luxury cabins even have their own balcony! All are en-suite and air-conditioned.

A mix of Asian and Western food is served to guests in the covered outdoor dining area and there will be an outdoor BBQ on the sundeck at least once on every trip, a great opportunity to enjoy an evening drink and discuss the days diving.

Nitrox Tanks Ready To Use The Archives

Why Do Scuba Divers Use Nitrox?

Nitrox or Enriched Air Nitrox to give it's full name is the most popular PADI speciality course that we teach and for good reason. It's relatively cheap, can be done in one day, straight forward and really is beneficial to the diver. Excessive absorption of nitrogen into our body tissues is the factor that limits a divers time underwater. So by simply putting more oxygen into our scuba tank, therefor reducing the amount of nitrogen we [...]

Octopus Are a Common Sighting In Phuket Diving Rare & Peculiar Critters

How Does An Octopus Change Colour?

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). [...]

The titan triggerfish in Phuket are not going to win any modelling contracts but they can add a little excitement to a dive. A head that's 2/3rds of its body mass, independently moving weird googly eyes and a set of teeth that wouldn't look out of place on a hyena.
