Since 2007, the imposing figure of the MV Giamani, an internationally-owned Phuket liveaboard, has been operating dive trips in Thailand and Myanmar.

Accommodating a maximum of 10 scuba divers, the high-bowed Giamani is very spacious and there is always plenty of room for the guests to find their own space. The cabins are all air conditioned with sea view windows and are comfortable and tastefully furnished. The 4 Deluxe cabins are en-suite and 1 Master double/twin cabin are all air-conditioned and have ensuite bathroom facilities.

You can choose to spend your relaxation time in the air-con lounge which is fully equipped with all the entertainment facilities you could wish for including TV, DVD player, music system and library. If you prefer to hang out in the open air, cooled by the sea breezes, then you can either sit in the shade in the liveaboard's roomy outdoor dining area on the upper deck or head to the bow and catch some rays on the sundeck.

The dive deck is spacious and the boat features separate camera rinse tanks and a camera table, so it's ideal for serious underwater photographers. Firmly established as a leading light in the Phuket liveaboard scene, the steel hulled MV Giamani could be a great choice for you.

    Customer rating - Excellent
    "We had an excellent crew and dive master (Ricardo) on this boat, everyone very friendly and helpful! The organization of the trip, food, diving, etc was admirable good. We had a cabin with own bathroom and this was very comfortable and clean. :)" - , Belgium, 20 April 2014 ...

    Customer rating - Excellent
    "Everything about the trip was beyond expectations. The liveaboard boat was safe and in excellent condition. The cabins were clean and comfortable. Food was excellent, especially considering the allergies. Staff was superb - Ricardo in particular was deserving of praise. On top of that, the diving was even better. Some tough current on a few of the dives, and one was cancelled due to the tsunami warning. But 2 manta rays on Koh Bon was worth it! Eagle ray following that ... but no whalesharks (Please speak with your boss about that)." - , USA, 24 April 2012 ...

    Customer rating - Excellent
    "I had a great trip on board of the MV Giamani, really excellent! The staff (both Thai crew and dive staff) were extremely friendly and professional. The choices of the Phuket dive sites, the briefings, and the guides were all great. The food was good, but could maybe use a little bit less oil ... taste is great though. The boat was in very good condition, and the dive deck was tidy, spacious, and operated efficiently." - , Australia, 23 November 2010 ...

    Customer rating - Excellent
