Similan liveaboard, the Sea of Fantasy

All cabins are above deck meaning they feature windows and natural light. Single and Twin cabins have shared bathrooms while the 2 Master cabins have en-suite facilities. Most socialising is done in the open-air dining area on the upper deck, where you will take your meals cooled by the sea breezes and against a backdrop of ever-changing Similans scenery. This is where the TV, DVD player and music system are located. The sundeck features chairs and mats and plenty of shading.

There is a spacious dive deck with plenty of room for all guests to gear up without feeling cramped. Space is maximised throughout the boat so it never feels too small. If you are on a budget or short of time, MV Sea of Fantasy could be the one to fulfil your Similan liveaboard dreams.
