Liveaboards in Thailand are one of the best ways to explore the Andaman Sea, and our Koh Lipe Liveaboard takes in the best of all of the dive sites around this fantastic paradise island at the far southern reaches of the Andaman Coast. Koh Lipe National Park comprises over 20 different dive sites in the Butang archipelago and Tarutao National Marine Park. Nowadays, the island of Koh Lipe itself is a popular tourist destination with many bars, restaurants, and accommodations. So for guests wanting a quieter and more luxurious pace of life, our Koh Lipe Liveaboard is the perfect solution. 


Koh Lipe is among over 30 small islands and coral reefs located in Tarutao National Marine Park - which is one of Asia’s oldest Marine Parks. MV Deep Andaman Queen is one of a select number of operators that visit the marine park, and spectacular underwater scenery awaits. The dive sites are in excellent condition because many are infrequently visited and some are hard to reach from shore on a day trip. It's truly some of the best scuba diving in Thailand. Although only a short distance away, the diving around Koh Lipe is different from what you’ll experience on our Similan Islands liveaboard, South Andaman Liveaboard, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang Liveaboard, or Myanmar Liveaboard.

The locations we visit on this unique liveabaord offer a variety of different types of diving, from shallow coral reefs and dramatic wall dives to rocky pinnacles and macro muck dives. Highlights of the trip include plenty of diving around Stonehenge, 8 Miles, Koh Adang, and Koh Sawang. Soft corals, vibrant reefs, and abundant marine life make underwater photography easy. Macro lovers will be in nudibranch heaven, and there are plenty of Maldivian Seasnails too. School of pelagic species flank the pinnacles and reefs, and shark diving enthusiasts can sometimes spot leopard sharks or whale sharks.  The perfect Thailand diving trip for newbies and seasoned pros alike, diving around Koh Lipe has something for everyone.

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.

Filippo Marelli, 23 Jan 2018 -

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!

- Nancy Lyndhurst, 30 Dec 2018 -

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!

- Christina Estrada, 28 Nov 2018 - 

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!

Jane Pegg, 10 Nov 2018

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!)

- Amy MacLucas, 11 Dec 2018 - 

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.

- Kongpu M, 3 Dec 2018 -

Best route from Similan Thailand to Black rock Myanmar. Fantastic UW scene which you could be choose. For 7 days 8 nights rides with friendly crews that’s make your vacation on this liveaboard will be unforgettable.

- Mandy Pearson, 9 Feb 2018 -
