MV OKTAVIA is one of the largest  and sturdiest live-aboards that travels from Khao Lak cruising the Similan islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin islands, Richelieu Rock and Boonsung wreck. It takes a lot to rock her and you will find your stay onboard very comfortable, even if the seas get a bit rough.

With a maximum of 20 guest on the ship there is plenty of space and comfort – even when she is fully booked.

The 'Blue Ocean' standard cabins are large and, spacious and feature either one double bed or two bunk beds. Where possible, single travelers occupy their own cabin, but when we are fully booked, two same-gender guests may have to share a bunk bed cabin. A single supplement of 33% will guarantee a private cabin. All “Blue Ocean” cabins are equipped with central air conditioning, fan, reading lights, shelf unit, two large panorama windows, sheets and towels.

Two large Master Cabins of 27 m2 are located on the upper deck and stretching across the entire width of the boat.They feature individual air-conditioning, fan, king size bed, desk, fridge, tv and lounge chairs. Comfortable, inflatable spare beds are available, so that a family of 4 fits comfortably in one Master Cabin.

All cabins have electrical outlets, running 220 volt electricity 24/7.

There are 4 shared European-style bathrooms with hot showers as well as 3 showers on the swim deck. On the upper decks ,  large and comfortable armchairs and sofas are very invitiving to relax. You also find there a media-PC, TV, DVD-player, a book exchange library and some board games. The large sundeck offers plenty of space with sun beds, yoga mats and a large sofa area eitghter in the sun or shade.

MV Oktavia offers a unique option of tour lengths. While the main vessel goes out to the diving sites for four or five days at a time, those wanting only to be at sea for two or three days can come back early or join mid-cruise by speedboat. Therefore the options are 2, 3, 4 or 5 days diving on a large and comfortable ship around the tropical islands of The Andaman Sea.
