MV Deep Andaman Queen - one of our popular value for money Similan Islands liveaboards

There are Master, VIP and Budget cabin types for you to choose the best match for your budget - all have en-suite bathrooms with hot water. The Deep Andaman Queen's Master cabin is one of the biggest on any liveaboard in Thailand with a King Size bed, panoramic views and a TV/DVD player for your entertainment. There's a complimentary mini bar and the sea views are quite breath-taking. VIP cabins on the main deck have either twin or double beds while the budget cabins below decks have bunk beds. All beds are at least 2m in length ensuring a comfortable night's sleep for tall guests.

The air conditioned saloon is comfortable and large enough for all guests to sit in at the same time. This is the place to cool off, relax and enjoy snacks like fresh tropical fruits and cakes. If you want to watch a movie on the wide screen TV there is a big selection available. Or you can relax on the shaded deck to the rear of the boat where the evening meals are served. There is plenty of sunbathing space as well.

Whether you are a group chartering the whole boat or a solo traveller joining with others, you can be sure of the same attentive treatment from the experienced liveaboard staff who enjoy entertaining their guests. Tanks are filled in their stations, so once your gear is set up you won't have to move it again for the duration of your Similan diving trip. All carrying of equipment is done by the boat crew. With an enriched air nitrox system, large dive deck and 2 motorised tenders, the Deep Andaman Queen liveaboard certainly has plenty to boast about.
