We have two fully equipped Similan liveaboard boats, MV Dolphin Queen and MV Similan Explorer, with everything you need to fully enjoy your time diving in the Similan Islands
MV Dolphin Queen
MV Dolphin Queen is our first liveaboard boat that does 4 Day Similan Liveaboard trips and 5 Day Myanmar Liveaboard trips.
Top Deck Cabin – Sleeps 2
Main Deck Cabin is the same
4 Bunk Cabin
Sleeps 4 people
MV Dolphin Queen has 3 decks. The main deck has 8 cabins for our guests. All cabins are air conditioned. There are 2 more cabins with double beds on the upper deck. All cabins have 220v plugs, so you can charge your camera battery packs or your lights. MV Dolphin Queen has a wooden hull, and this means less sound from the engine room.
On the main deck at the stern is the dive platform which has more than ample room to store and put on your gear. There are also 2 Bauer compressors with an air cooler and 40 tanks. Close at hand are our 3 boat crew, who are there to help you gear up and help you on your dive entry and exit. The crew fill the tanks so all you do is dive. There are 3 spacious toilets with showers and 2 showers on the dive deck.
The galley is also on the main deck. The food is prepared by the cook and her assistant who can cater for special needs.
The upper deck is where you can find the wheel house (captains quarters) at the bow. At the stern is the spacious eating area. Here you can help yourself with coffee, tea, water, electrolight drinks throughout the day and night, as well as fruits which are always on the table.
The sun deck gives you room to stretch out and relax on our comfy recliners. Remember to put on lots of sun cream!
