My first Liveaboard was extraordinary with Steve and his incredible crew! This was also my very first trip to Thailand, although my week was spent on the boat, I couldnt have had a better time! When we boarded the boat on Day 1, Steve, head hancho (rightfully so) welcomes us with a much appreciated briefing. During the briefing we met each other, we were all very diverse and from all around the world. We also met the crew (Rockstars of the boat)! Steve then set us up for the week and talked us through every detail you can think of, idk how he remembers all this! He was so comprehensive, thorough and entertaining. Not only did Steve help to set our expectations, the entire week he helped us have fun, keep safe and make the very most from our trip. I’m also his biggest fan bc he was diligent about helping me get my regulators back after I left them on the minibus after the trip. This was 100% my fault, but immediately after I contacted him worried sick, he had located them for me by the time I boarded my plane home. 🙌🏻

We had 6 days 4 nights liveaboard cruise at Similan and Surin Island on New Year's Eve. Steve and the staff organized a party with presents for everyone and fireworks. Everything was very well organized onboard and the staff were very efficient and pleasant, always willing to help. Lot of food after every dive (4 dives a day) and free drinks and snacks at all times. The cabin was small but comfortable with hot water and air conditioning. Steve gave us very detailed briefings to make sure that we could dive safely and comfortably. All diving equipments are in good shape. Great divings especially around Richelieu Rock where we got to see the whale shark and much more!

Amazing first liveaboard for my husband and I. So appreciated the excellent organization as well as the attentiveness and support of ALL the staff on board. And the extraordinary luxuries like post dive smoothies and warm facecloths! Food amazing-and plentiful. We especially liked the emphasis to respect and take care of the incredible marine environment we are so lucky to be able to enjoy. Gear and dive support/safety top notch. Thanks also for finding me all the cool nudibranchs Steve! (And the whale shark-I like the big things too!)

The Deep Andaman Queen was the best of diving the Similan and Surin islands. Their infrastructure gives you the best possible dive experience. The only challenge I had was getting on and off the Liveaboard on the dives. It challenged me in every aspect with different scenarios at every sites. The crew was very accommodating and will pair you with your experience level. The staff was nice and the instructors are very thorough on their teaching capabilities. I have over 1000+ dives as a recreational master diver and dove in 7 different seas and I’m impressed with their instructors. So, if you thinking of doing an Advanced course, do it with them. You get the maximum dives and experience what you learn with the instructor and they will make sure you understand the skills. The food was good and plentiful. My favorite night was Hot Pot and Korean BBQ night. My favorite dive sites: The Dome, Richelieu Rock and Woosung Wreck. The best part of diving with Deep Andaman Queen is that there are 3 land expeditions. One is a sunset cruise around Similan island and 2 beach hikes with one that has a spectacular views.

Had an absolute blast on the Deep Andaman Queen on a trip to Burma. Steve and the crew run a tight ship and the captain is very skilled at getting you to the right drop site for your dives.Not only one of the best diving experiences of my life but one of the greatest adventures so far.

Perfect organization, good rooms and excellent crew: they'll do anything they can to help. It was my first time on a liveboard and I had a really good time; hopefully I will be on the boat again next year!

The excellent crew, dive guides and food more than make up for some of the pre arrival experiences and uncomfy beds. Some Crew, are forced to sleep on sun deck which limits use at night. Great trip though!

I had an absolutely brilliant time on the Similans trip. I've been out on DAQ twice now; first time just snorkelling, second time diving. The crew and dive staff are incredible, the trip felt really well organised and the team couldn't do enough to help.
