MV Andaman is one of the best value liveaboard boats visiting the Andaman Sea. She can accommodate 20 guest and features three different cabin options offering a variety of comfort for all budgets. All cabins are equipped with air-conditioning, storage space and sea view windows. Choose from either our two new double cabins complete with ensuite bathroom, our two standard double bed cabins at the front of the boat or an individual private bunk (with curtain) in one of our recently refurbished (2011) 6-berth sea view cabins.

The dive deck has also been redesigned to service all customers with maximum space and flexibility whilst our 3 toilet/showers have been enlarged and refurbished and now feature hot water showers.

The middle deck covers a spacious dining area where we all meet for our three buffet-style meals a day and relax between dives. Now with extended deck space, the two communal dining tables with cushioned seating encourage our famous social and informal atmosphere onboard.

Between meals you will find free snacks, fruit, cookies, tea, coffee and water plus a selection of fish identification books and magazines.

The large, partially covered sundeck remains the same, plus we have extended this area to run the whole length of the boat – you will be spoilt for choice. Here you will find a selection of sunbeds, sun mattresses and hammocks: some in the open air and some under cover for when the sun is at its strongest.

The new “star deck”  is uncovered, giving a panoramic view of the night sky – perfect for that after dinner drink or early morning coffee. The many comfortable beanbags are the main feature of this deck, which can be moved around the low tables to suit your group size or can be tucked into a quiet corner to give you some privacy should you prefer to read your book or just gaze out to sea.

On the final evening of the 3 day and 4 day trips, instead of a night dive we invite you to join us for a relaxing evening onboard, starting with cocktails at sunset followed by a barbecue dinner on the sundeck. Usually a lively night for us all and on the 7 day trip – you’ll get two! .

The dinghy gives you the opportunity to spend some time on the beautiful beaches.
