MV Andaman is one of the best-value Similan Islands liveaboard diving boats visiting the Similan Islands & Richelieu Rock, and can accommodate up to twenty guests. There are three different cabin options, which are 6-bed dorm, regular doubles, and doubles with en suite bathrooms. The owner operators of MV Andaman have been running Similan liveaboard diving trips longer than all others. This experience is shown in the safety, comfort, and value of the trips, as well as them knowing what most divers at this price range want. The boat's steel hull and design ensure stabilty & comfort throughout the cruise. The rates with and without rental equipment are easily the best value, and therefore very popular. Divers who rent Andaman's equipment are also supplied with a diving computer included in the price. The trips go to all of the best dive sites in Thailand, including as far north as the Surin Islands and Richelieu Rock. There are 3-day and 4-day trips, and guests can combine two or three trips at a discounted rate to make a 7-day or 11-day supercruise. Divers of all levels of certification and experience are welcome on MV Andaman, but Open Water divers need to take the PADI  Adventure Deep Dive on board to become certified to 30m (99ft.), or they can join the PADI Advanced course for an unbeatable price of just 5,500 THB.

Onboard-MV-Andaman-LiveaboardIn addition, non-diving guests are more than welcome to join each cruise for snorkelling, sunbathing or just enjoying the fresh air, good food and fine company. Non-diving guests receive more discount than on most other Similan liveaboard cruises.

MV Andaman cruises are very popular, and this is not surprising. The professional, experienced and friendly team make sure that everything is taken care of before, during and after each cruise. The range of cabins makes for comfortable and sociable trips. There are two 6-bunk cabins for divers on a budget. These air-conditioned cabins have sea-view windows, and each bed has a privacy curtain. At the front of the boat there are two double bed cabins, which are possibly the best-value double cabins on any Similan liveaboard diving boat. At the rear of the same deck are two more double-bed cabins, but these have their own private en suite bathrooms. Again, the value of these cabins is almost unbeatable, and they are often sold out long in advance. But it's still always worth asking us if one's available, even at the last minute.

On the boat's main deck there are several large covered outdoor areas, where guests enjoy delicious food & dive briefings, or just chill out on bean bags. Here, the guests can look at the beautiful scenery of the Similan & Surin Islands without getting too much sun. You can fill out your logbook in and after-diving enjoy a drink.

Andaman's top deck is for sun worshippers and those wanting to chill and socialise. It's easy to get a better view of your surroundings from up here, and guests spend a lot of time relaxing, chatting, sunbathing or gazing at the clear star-filled skies at night.

When I went to Similan a few years ago, I used a different boat. Honestly, the facilities and food were better on the previous boat. However, the food and facilities on this boat are not bad. The biggest advantage of this boat is the crew. Lucinda i more
