This liveaboard cruise runs on a fixed schedule from November to end of April. Departing every Friday morning and returning on Sunday evening.
Our liveaboard, the "MV Marco Polo", leaves Tap Lamu for a 3-day diving safari to the best dive sites on the Northern Islands of the Andaman Sea.

Your liveaboard tour starts on Friday morning. Together with a maximum of 11 other guests, you board the Marco Polo, receive an initial briefing from your tour leader and move into your cabin to enjoy the first few hours on board. 30 NM later we reach Koh Bon, your first dive site.
More experienced divers will also be given opportunity to dive at Koh Bon Pinnacle, one of the best Manta cleaning stations in Thailand. With a trip up North we will reach the next dive site, Koh Tachai, which is known to be a great place to spot a Manta Ray or even a Whale Shark. For the night dive on that day, we lie protected in front of the Surin Islands before we go to the world-famous Richelieu Rock the next morning. Awaiting you in the three following dives will be an astounding biodiversity and an impressive underwater scenery. For the night dive we will be back to Koh Tachai, where we will also do the first two dives on the following day.
