Diving is one of the most popular activities is Thailand, all levels of divers drawn to the calm, warm waters and rich variety of marine life. Diving is on offer all over the country but liveaboard diving is concentrated on the west side in the Andaman Sea. The islands and rocky outcrops in these waters are home to some of the most fascinating marine life in Thailand. Some are accessible from land but the more remote areas like Richelieu Rock are much better from a diving cruise as they are several hours from land. Most diving liveaboard itineraries take between 4 and 10 days depending on how many places you want to visit.
Those who want the experience of a traditional Southeast Asian sailing boat can choose between the atmospheric, if slightly older, ‘The Junk’ and the traditional but luxurious SY Diva Andaman. Divers looking for simple backpacker style, will enjoy the Flying Seahorse. The MV Deep Andaman Queen, MV Andaman Tritan and Marco Polo are more modern with spacious cabins and bright windows. At the luxury end, you can travel in complete comfort on the Thailand Aggressor with a stylish sundeck and private bathrooms in the cabins.
