MV Hallelujah - one of our popular value for money Similan liveaboards

Hallelujah has a large diving deck and platform, with plenty of storage space for ease and convenience. While not scuba diving, guests can relax in the air-conditioned saloon/dining area with its entertainment and sound system. The delicious buffet-style meals can be enjoyed in the indoor or open-air dining areas.

Sun worshippers can head upstairs to the huge sun deck which spans the length of the liveaboard and is equipped with chairs and loungers. This is also a great place to enjoy panoramic views of the beautiful tropical islands and watch the sun set over the turquoise sea.

All the air-conditioned guest cabins are spacious and have private en-suite bathrooms with hot water showers. They have large windows which allow guests to enjoy the stunning scenery from the comfort of their cabins as well as doors that open on to the outside of the yacht for a cooling breeze. The whole vessel is stylishly furnished with wood panelling throughout the interior. MV Hallelujah is a superb choice for top quality accommodation and great diving made easy while cruising on this Similan liveaboard.

Customer reviews:

"Very well laid out boat, briefings were clear and short. All of the staff on the boat were very helpful, and knowledgeable. " - , USA ...

"The liveaboard trip with the M/V Hallelujah was fantastic in most aspects, and I would gladly recomend this vessel to other divers thinking about doing the same cruise. I had a tiny hope of seeing whale sharks on this Similan tour... and we did!! This exeeded my expectations, and I consider my self very lucky to have seen them not only once, but three times. All in all, a great trip" - , Norway ...
