The Best Diving in Thailand and Myanmar
Take diving in Thailand and Myanmar to a new level. Explore the best dive sites on one of our tailor-made liveaboard trips.
To help our guests plan the perfect Thailand diving holiday, we have created routes suitable for all times of year by offering a variety of destinations and starting points that include Phuket liveaboards, Khao Lak Liveaboards, and Koh Lipe Liveaboards.
When Dive the Andaman Sea
Like most destinations for diving in Thailand, locations in the Similan Islands and Myanmar have a wet and a dry season. In the wet season, conditions can be poor, so it’s not possible to explore the dive sites all year round. Plus, the best marine life like whale sharks and manta rays tend to visit more throughout the dry season.
On the Andaman coast, the wet season runs from June to September, and the Similan and Surin National Marine Parks are closed during this time. However, because the weather patterns are very regionalized, diving around Koh Lipe remains possible.
We have scheduled all of our Deep Andaman Queen trips to best suit the seasons, ensuring optimum conditions for dive courses, fun diving, underwater photography, and overall enjoyment.

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!

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!)

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.
