Liveaboards in Thailand are one of the best ways to explore the Andaman Sea, and the South Andamans provide spectacular underwater scenery and some of the very best scuba diving in Thailand and beyond. The dive sites on our South Andaman Liveaboard include the pinnacles of Hin Daeng (Red Rock), Hin Muang (Purple Rock), Koh Haa (5 Islands including Koh Phi Phi and the Racha islands), and a selection of premier dive sites on route back to Phuket. Many of these locations are only accessible to a few boats, such as MV Deep Andaman Queen, and are only open for scuba diving at certain times of the year.
While many Thailand liveaboards only operate in the North Andaman, we have developed this itinerary to show our guests the full variety of underwater experiences that are available. Although only a short distance away, diving in the South Andamans is different from what you’ll experience on our Similan Islands liveaboard, Koh Lipe Liveaboard, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang Liveaboard, or Myanmar Liveaboard. There is a mixture of pinnacles, rock islands, walls, and sloping reefs, all home to a fantastic array of soft corals and macro life. When you dive the south Andamans, you’ll have the chance to experience shark diving with leopard sharks, whale sharks, and black tips, and see pelagic marine life like manta rays.
The King Cruiser wreck is one of the most popular dive sites on our South Andaman Liveaboard itinerary. It’s the wreck of a passenger ferry that sunk back in 1997. All passengers and crew were safely evacuated, so don’t worry, it’s not a ghost ship! The wreck itself is now teeming with life and covered in soft corals with plenty of nooks, crannies, and passageways to shine your torch down.

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!
- 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!

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.
