SY Diva Andaman is a traditional SE Asian Schooner of 35 meter length and 7 meter beam. She offers 7 comfortable cabins fully furnished with air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom and flat screen. Her capacity of max 14 guests guarantees that each can have a real feeling of privacy anyplace aboard meaning that the already spacious boat is even more comfortable for an extended liveaboard in the Similans and Mergui Archipelago, Nitrox is available on board.
Built with traditional materials in a typical South- East Asian style, SY Diva Andaman also complies with all international marine safety standards.
Besides a relaxing luxury dive cruise with idyllic panoramas, divers and non-divers will enjoy our broad range of activities included in our package, such as island touring, snorkeling and kayaking. Within the supplementary services offered aboard you will notably appreciate the traditional Thai massages, a relaxing moment with a cocktail as well as a selection of fine wines and Grands Crus. The boat features two specially designed wine ´cellars´ to keep wine at the correct temperature in the tropics. The chef will surprise you with such delicacies as foie gras prepared in front of your eyes. Nothing about this vessel, crew or trip is ordinary.
