The Phinisi is a very special diving yacht that offers guests diving cruises to the best locations in Thailand. Also there are some trips into Myanmar’s Mergui Archipelago. The Phinisi is operated by the most-experienced & professional team, ensuring that every diving cruise is one to remember forever. Relaxing luxury, a special atmosphere, & enjoyable cruises are guaranteed on this wonderful yacht. Although its design is traditional, it's actually a modern boat.

There are seven comfortable cabins on The Phinisi, each with a private en suite bathroom, air conditioning, storage cupboards & shelves, & a safety deposit box. The air conditioners are independently controlled, and the bathrooms have hot & cold freshwater showers and proper western toilets. There are two cabins that have four single beds. And five cabins are for two guests, which have a large double bed or two single beds, depending on whether you’re a couple or friends, or travelling alone.

The Phinisi sun deckThe Phinisi has comfortable indoor and outdoor dining & socialising areas that will make deciding which to choose pleasantly difficult. The lounge saloon is large, air-conditioned and beautifully decorated, but why come on a cruise and stay indoors? Undercover outdoor dining doesn’t get any better than this, with unbeatable views and plenty of delicious food. There are also areas to sunbathe or enjoy the sea breeze in the shade. Spending time on board is so nice that you may feel reluctant to go diving. Luckily, entering and exiting the crystal clear seas is very smooth and easy thanks to motorized tenders. Actually, the new Similan Islands rules say that all boats must use tender dinghies for dropping off divers. Most other Similan liveaboards are designed with a flat dive deck at the rear, which for them is now redudant. But the Phinisi team have always been set up for tender drop offs, so they have much more experience and better equipment for this. The western staff and local crew are all extremely experienced and service minded. Sometimes the smallest details mean so much, and you will not be disappointed on The Phinisi.

The itineraries give you the best liveaboard diving in Thailand. There is a range of itineraries that include 4-night, 5-night and 10-night cruises. For most of the high season Phinisi alternates 4D/4N trips with 5D/6N trips. There are also a few 'Southern Thailand' trips that go all the way down to Koh Lipe, passing Hin Daeng and Koh Haa. Starting in 2025, The Phinisi will also go into Myanmar's Mergui Archipelago.

But for the 2023-2024 diving season, most trips are 'The Best of Thailand' and go to 10D/10N. These trips visit all the best dive sites from Richelieu Rock in the north down to Koh Lipe in the south.

'Glad I chose The Phinisi as my first liveaboard boat. I am a new recreational diver with less than 20 dives when I did the Liveaboard with The Phinisi. I felt safe during the dives (max of 5 divers per group) and our dive guide looked after all of u more
