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.

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.

  1. Steve Atkinson

    Some of the best diving in the world, excellent food, good crew and dive guides: not the Hilton afloat, but what real diver cares about that?

  2. Charlie and Moira

    Great boat, great diving, great crew! We had a fantastic trip. Thanks SeaBees! Exceptionally lucky to spend around 6 dives with giant oceanic mantas ❤️❤️.
