With 10 crew to cater for the needs of a maximum of 15 scuba divers you can be assured of plenty of personal attention. Guests can relax in the air-conditioned saloon/dining area where you can find the entertainment facilities, or on the large sundeck where you can soak up the tropical Phuket sunshine in style or enjoy a beer or soft drink.

The liveaboard's interior is beautifully furnished with wooden paneling throughout the vessel. SY Diva Andaman like any diva, loves to travel in style and enjoy the finer things in life, while cruising the Similans the greater Phuket area, and Myanmar.
