This liveaboard cruise runs on a fixed schedule from November to end of April. Departing every Sunday and returning on Thursday evening.

Our flagship vessel, the "MV Marco Polo", starts in Tap Lamu to begin a 4-day diving safari to Thailands best dive sites such as Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock.
Your liveaboard tour starts on Sunday evening. Together with a maximum of 11 other guests, you will go on board the Marco Polo in Tap Lamu, receive an initial briefing, move into your cabin and enjoy the first evening on board.
Overnight our captain will drive you safely to the Similan Islands, about 35km away. On the morning of the first day of the safari a dreamlike backdrop of the Similan Islands will await you with its crytal clear waters, granit rocks and white sandy beaches.
The first couple days of diving will be in the Similan National Park, including Koh Bon and Koh Tachai, both very good places for large fish encounters.
The northernmost point of the Phuket liveaboard is Richelieu Rock. The boat spends a whole day at this isolated offshore dive site, so there will be plenty of opportunities to marvel at the incredible abundance of fish, the biodiversity in the macro range and, with a bit of luck, a whale shark.
On the following days the boat returns south again. On the last day there are two more dives in the Similan National Park before the boat makes its way home to Tap Lamu. For the last dive of the tour we have a special treat for you with the fish magnet Boonsung Wreck.
