Scuba Diving Liveaboard and Sea Kayaking in Phuket, Similan Islands & Krabi National Parks with MV Andaman Seafarer

Situated in South East Asia, in the Malay peninsula, this 'pearl of the Orient' with white sand beaches and great diving national parks, is bordered on the east with Cambodia, north with Laos, west with Burma (Myanmar) and South with Malaysia. Thailand offers among the very best sightseeing and vacation places in the region and the world. Its accommodation system is with no doubt  of western standards with lower costs compared to the equivalent in the western world, and the rest of Asia. Thailand is a remarkable resort destination with places like Phuket, Koh Samui, Phiphi islands and Krabi, ranked among the best beaches in the world.

The weather is warm year round and the country is ruled by two monsoons: the northeast and southwest monsoons. They give to the place different seasons on the west and east coasts. The west coast, where lie the wonderful Phuket and Similan Islands, is ruled by the southwest monsoon which gives the area its dry season between November and April. The east coast where Koh Samui and Koh Tao lie is ruled by the northeast monsoon which gives the area its dry season between April and October.

Diving liveaboard operations around Phuket run from the beginning of November until early April, the best time being between late November and late March. The water surroundng Phuket is home to an abondant marine life and features great pelagic life with sharks, whalesharks, manta rays as well as an extremely various and colorful coral reef life.







The M.V Andaman Seafarer is a comfortable wood and steel dive liveaboard vessel built in 1994 and recently overhauled. She accommodates up to 16 passengers in four A/C cabins and as most of our customers book on "VIP passenger" cabins, hosting 2 persons only in large bunks. Most of the cruises have a maximum of 6-10 guests. Each cabin has four big single bunks (200x90x20). She has two showers and  toilets.

The decks are wide and spacious to provide guests with maximum diving convenience and tropical living style. The vessel is equipped with radar, a GPS navigation system, a depth sounder, a CB radio, a VHF radio, 2 generators and a 4.7m Avon Rib dinghy with a 25 HP outboard engine.
