And now for something completely different…

Welcome to Thailand, perhaps one of the most popular dive destinations in the world!

This liveaboard is a great first experience for young divers new to boat life because the conditions are so favourable. The water is warm and the dive sites are easier, an experience on this Thailand liveaboard will prepare you for more daring adventures like Socorro or the Galapagos!

The sheer number of dives you will do over these 8 days will help you solidify your skills and increase your comfort in the water. Plus, think of all the cool stuff we’ll see!

Why we love diving in Thailand

The colors! Ghost pipefish and brilliant harlequin shrimp. Then we have the sharks (reef and leopard), the turtles, and of course lets not forget the fish!
