MV Nautica - Dive Burma and Thailand in style

There's a spacious open-air lounge area on the upper deck with comfortable seating. A cushioned area at the rear of the main deck is great for relaxing Thai style and this is typical of the ethos of the company and the boat's laid back and sociable feel. Nautica is a great choice if you're looking for a high quality charter without guests taking themselves too seriously! Music and movies are available from a well stocked library.

The cabins are bright and airy with modern styling. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms, except for the budget cabin on the main deck. All the cabins have individually controlled air conditioning, mini bars, reading lamps and large seaview windows. You have the option of a larger double bed Master cabin on the upper deck, Standard cabins or a Budget bunk bed cabin on the main deck.

You can choose between 9 days diving in Burma and Thailand - the Mergui Archipelago and Similans, or shorter dive trips Richelieu Rock, Similan Islands and the southern islands. Nautica is 1 of only 2 liveaboard boats that dive in the Koh Tarutao and Butang Island areas. Why not take the opportunity to visit these new and unusual destinations while you can!

Customer reviews: 

"Nice quite boat, including us there were only 6 guests which was fantastic. Nice sized cabins, spacious deck areas, good food, good service, good diving. Overall it was a very pleasant trip." - Gerald Chappell, UK ...

"Boat crew was very good. Worked well together very attentive and helpful. Problems on boat were, ran out of cereal and milk after first day - obviously not stocked. Nitrox system did not work - was very disappointed but understand things break. They did bring a technician out by boat to try and fix but could not." - Howard Blitz, USA ...

"Great boat. Very nice to have it slightly smaller (only 10 divers for our trip). Great dive masters, good equipment, very nice rooms and lounging deck. Day 3 on Richelieu definite highlight. Would highly recommend this particular boat." - Hagen Rode, South Africa ...
