Description

Welcome on board the M/V Pawara, a luxurious, custom-built, steel-hull boat sailing the Similan Islands. Her name translates as 'Treasure of the Corals' - sail with her and you will see why.

The MV Pawara is equipped with a 35 metre hull and large hull stabilisers, providing a stable platform to explore all the best dive sites of the Andaman Sea, including the Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock.

Twelve cabins comfortably accommodate 24 guests who can enjoy a 35 metre saloon complete with TV/DVD player, free Wi-Fi internet and PlayStation, comfortable and improved dive deck, spacious 72 metre sundeck and both indoor and outdoor dining areas.

The saloon and the dining room are both air conditioned and guests also have access to a large shaded area on the main deck. All cabins except budget cabins have private bathrooms.

Mini breakfasts, breakfasts, lunches and dinners - as well as snacks - are provided throughout your stay on board the MV Pawara. Buffet-style service is provided in the dining room and fresh coffee, tea, soft drinks and drinking water are free-of-charge, 24 hours a day. There will be plenty of fresh seafood and fresh vegetables throughout your trip.

Free snacks include fresh fruit and fruit yoghurt shakes. Local beers are also available for purchase. Other dietary requirements can usually be catered for - let us know. Dining service begins with dinner on the first night of the trip.
