The Party Deck
The Party Deck is wonderfully appointed with comfort in mind.

There’s also a good-sized salon, where you can screen your freshly shot videos or listen to your favourite CDs.
Meet The Crew
You’ll love being served and pampered by our friendly Thai crew. Whatever your needs on board the “MV Marco Polo”, it’ll be their pleasure to help. You’ll love their smiles (as only the Thais can do), their service, and the way they greet you every day.
Our Captain has many years experience on the seas around Thailand to ensure your trip is smooth, safe and –above all – satisfying.
The Galley Crew consists of two talented cooks, who can turn the simplest snacks into a banquet. When it’s time to eat they’ll also help to serve you and attend to your every your need. If you discover a dish you really enjoy (and ask really nicely), they may even share their secret recipes with you!
Our two “boat boys” are always working to keep the “MV Marco Polo” ship-shape. They also attend to your equipment, filling your tanks and keeping you smiling between dives.
The Tour Leader
Our tour leader couple Anita & Nelson are PADI & SSI Instructors. With years of extensive experience in the Similan Islands, they knows the best spots to find fish and how to meet them in a safe, controlled environment.
Cabins & Catering
There are 7 roomy double cabins, with plenty of space for your personal belongings. All rooms open to the outer deck to give you the full benefit of the cool sea breeze when the sun beats down.
Each cabin has a reading light and 220 V outlets with a constant electric supply. There are three A/C cabins, two of which are equipped with a double bed and an extra single bed, giving you extra space for sleeping or storing your personal goods.
The third A/C cabin, our honeymoon suite, is located at the bow and boasts a King-size bed. All A/C cabins have individual A/C units with remote control so you can adjust the temperature to your own comfort level.
The four fan cabins offer spacious bunk beds for a comfortable night, with enough space for your personal belongings. Like in the A/C cabins, you will find clothes hangers and towel rails to keep things neat while during your stay on board.
Toilet / Shower Area
The “MV Marco Polo” is equipped with plenty of bathroom facilities. There are two shower cabins, two open-air showers and three additional European-style toilets complete with sinks.
You’ll be served traditional European and vibrant Thai cuisine cooked fresh in our specially equipped galley. The cooking area is stainless steel to guarantee hygienic food preparation and a large refrigerator keeps food fresh during the voyage.
A taste of what you can expect..
1. You’ll be greeted in the morning with a light snack before your first dive.
2. Back on the “MV Marco Polo”, we serve a full European-style breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausages, fruits and toast with tea or coffee.
3. Two dives later, it’s lunchtime and you’ll probably be famished. A selection of Thai and European dishes with fresh tropical fruits will be waiting for you on deck.
4. In the afternoon light snacks will keep you going until dinner.
5. A full day’s magical diving is over and we’re all ready to eat, drink and be merry. You’ll be treated to a range of delicious European and Thai culinary delights as the sun sets over the Andaman Sea. Then it’s time to kick back and chill out on deck before we do it all again tomorrow.
