6 Berth bunk on M/V Andaman Lunch on M/V Andaman Sunset on M/V Andaman sundeck

Since 1997 the M/V Andaman has been a firm favourite with all our divers, drawing our customers back again and again to dive onboard one of the friendliest and most relaxing liveaboards in the Andaman Sea.

Double bed cabin on M/V AndamanTHE LOWER DECK

Now with a choice of three different cabins styles offering a variety of comfort for all budgets, all cabins are equipped with air-conditioning, storage space and sea view windows. Choose from either our two double cabins complete with ensuite bathroom, our two standard double bed cabins at the front of the boat or an individual private bunk (with curtain) in one of our recently refurbished 6-berth sea view cabins.

The dive deck has also been redesigned to service all customers with maximum space and flexibility whilst our three toilet/showers have been enlarged and refurbished and now feature hot water showers.

Colourful coral at Similan IslandsTHE MIDDLE DECK

No changes here – the covered middle deck is still the same spacious dining area where we all meet for our three buffet-style meals a day and relax between dives. Now with extended deck space, the two communal dining tables with cushioned seating encourage our famous social and informal atmosphere onboard.

Between meals you will find free snacks, fruit, cookies, tea, coffee and water plus a selection of fish identification books and magazines.

A beautiful beah at Similan IslandsTHE UPPER DECK

The large, partially covered sundeck remains the same, plus we have extended this area to run the whole length of the boat – you will be spoilt for choice. Here you will find a selection of sunbeds, sun mattresses and hammocks: some in the open air and some under cover for when the sun is at its strongest.

The new “star deck” (as we like to call it!) is uncovered, giving a panoramic view of the night sky – perfect for that after dinner drink or early morning coffee. The many comfortable beanbags are the main feature of this deck, which can be moved around the low tables to suit your group size or can be tucked into a quiet corner to give you some privacy should you prefer to read your book or just gaze out to sea.

On the final evening of the 3 day and 4 day trips, instead of a night dive we invite you to join us for a relaxing evening onboard, starting with cocktails at sunset followed by a barbecue dinner on the sundeck. Usually a lively night for us all and on the 7 day trip – you’ll get two!

Happy divers on M/V AndamanTHE TRIPS

Would you prefer to spend the majority of your time diving either the Similan Islands, or maybe focus on the northern dive sites of Koh Tachai, Surin Islands and Richelieu Rock? With our flexible itinerary you can choose exactly how long your trip will last plus choose which part of the Andaman Sea you want to dive the most.

On the southern trips you will have plenty of time to dive many of the famous dive sites in the Similan Islands plus have one or two dives at Koh Bon – more if the mantas are in residence! In-between dives you can either relax onboard, snorkel on the shallow reefs or go ashore to the white sand beaches.

For the more energetic, try a walk on the tropical rainforest trail between the large and small beaches on Koh Miang (#4) or climb to the top of the famous rock formation on Koh Similan (#8) for beautiful views over the bay.

Ao GuerkOn the northern trips you have the chance to dive the more challenging and adventurous dive sites of Koh Tachai plus Richelieu Rock, and the less frequented dive sites of the Surin Islands, where you can also have some beach time, either at the Moken (Sea Gypsy) village or at the National Park Headquarters.

You can still enjoy the best of both worlds, covering the full range of dive sites, beaches and beautiful scenery in the Similans and the Surins, on the Andaman's classic 4 day/4 night trip.

Or – if you have enough time to spare - combine two trips for the ultimate 7 day trip in the Andaman Sea. Choose to dive more in the north or the south without feeling you are missing out on the other location – both 7 day trips visit all the islands, it’s up to you where you want dive more. The choice is yours!

Would you like to keep a permanent memory of your diving trip? Our videographer will be onboard filming both above and beneath the water and at the end of the trip you will have the chance to view and purchase this personalised memento of your time onboard.

DIVING DEPTHS ON OUR LIVEABOARDS

On Sea Dragon liveaboards we plan our dives to a maximum depth of 30m and you must be certified to dive to this depth. The majority of insurance companies will not honour any insurance claim that is made if the customer has dived deeper than the recommended guidelines for their certification level.

Required certification levels include:

  • PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (or equivalent)
  • PADI Adventure Diver (or equivalent) including the Deep Adventure Dive
  • PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent) plus the Deep Adventure Dive

If you are not certified to dive to 30m and wish to join one of our liveaboards, we can offer you a choice of the following options:

1) Take a PADI Deep Adventure Dive (B1,500 + liveaboard trip price)

This is the easiest option and requires no extra time, as it is conducted during the first dive of your liveaboard trip. This dive is a required dive in the PADI Advanced Open Water course and you will receive credit towards this certification when you complete this dive. You will receive the PADI Deep Dive Speciality manual which is yours to keep and can be used again if you decide to complete the full PADI Deep Dive Speciality course.

2) Upgrade your certification level to PADI Adventure Diver (Click here for prices & details)

3) Upgrade your certification level to PADI Advanced Open Water Diver (Click here for prices & details)
