MV Pawara is the flagship of one of Phuket’s most respected diving centres. She is a 35m steel-hull cruise ship, specifically designed for luxury liveaboard trips, although the cost of joining one is much more affordable than many may expect. The staff and crew are among the most established and professional in the region, having been in operation for twenty years. This nice new boat and its cruises are often fully booked due to their repeat custom and from word-of-mouth recommendations. Therefore, booking early makes sense, not only to ensure a place but also to benefit from early-bird discounts at the beginning of each diving season. The excellent reputation is based on service, thorough preparation, & safety. This wonderful luxury liveaboard diving vessel offers its guests wifi and other luxuries in the air-conditioned cabins, each containing queen-size double or twin beds, and all but the budget cabins have en suite bathrooms. The maximum number of guests per trip is just twenty four, some of whom are non-divers and benefit from discount on the cruise price. Nitrox (enriched air) is available for free to divers who are certified to use it.

Pawara liveaboard guests are mainly based in en suite cabins with individual air-conditioning units. However, there are two 'budget cabins' which share a bathroom but still enjoy air-conditioning. In total, there are four cabin types on two of the boat's four decks. The Master cabins have double beds and the best views. Deluxe cabins are twin bunk only, and the standard cabins can be twin share or queen-size double. All guests enjoy exquisite buffet meals, fruit, snacks, tea and coffee throughout the cruise. In fact, the food and service are what most of our customers rave about.

The service that Pawara’s staff and crew offers customers is both professional and helpful. Although their prices are not as high as some other diver operators, they still make their customers feel special. From being picked up at the hotel to the drop off at the end of the trip, everything feels like it is done from the heart and with an honest smile.

on-the-deck-Pawara-dive-boat-similansSailing out at sea for several days requires thorough preparation. There are no convenience stores, dairies or vegetable gardens out there. They always make sure that everything is covered, plus extras for emergencies. Vegetarian guests are catered for, as are children. With guests from all over the world, they do an excellent job of making sure that everyone is taken care of. This doesn’t just apply to food and drinks, either. Spare sets of equipment and tools and skilled technicians need to be on hand for any unexpected situation. Safety comes first - at all times. The boats and dinghies are new and well-maintained. There are more than enough life jackets on board, but hopefully never needed. Pawara also has responsible rules and regulations regarding dive times & depths, diving in certain conditions and alcohol consumption. Rental equipment on Pawara is all new and well-maintained, as should be expected.

Pawara Liveaboard is owned and run by the same team as MV Sawasdee Fasai which is a recently refurbished luxury liveaboard dive boat.

I want to wholeheartedly endorse Similan Diving Tours for the best dive experience that I have ever had. The website was easy to navigate and it made it easy to choose the trip that I wanted. Jamie was great in helping me decide on the trip/boat that best matched my experience and interests. I can't say enough for what a great experience it was. The ease of use, follow-up and communication both pre and post dive was excellent. Thank you.. more

"We booked a 4d4n a liveaboard excursion in October on MW Pawara cruising to the Similans and Surin islands. Organisation was perfect and fun with Jamie Dodson who made us very comfortable. The boat and crew were very friendly and professional."
