    A great liveaboard with personal service Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin & Richelieu, Thailand in April

    The great thing about the Giamani is that because it is a relatively small boat you are guaranteed almost exclusively dives, with small groups. The quality of the dive leaders is good, and their knowledge of the dive sites is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble for any member of the crew who are all there to give you a fantastic diving experience. The food is great quality and plentiful, catering for all tastes. Richelieu Rock is an amazing dive site - truly a world top ten and at last being properly protected by the Thai authorities.

    Small diving group. Great dive guides. Well organised.

    Great trip that improved my diving skills! Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin & Richelieu, Thailand in March

    I had the 5-day Similan, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, and Richelieu Rock trip. What a trip! Ric helped me improve my diving skills throughout the trip as I got the AOW certification. Meals and snacks were delicious and it was great relaxing on the sundeck after every meal and dive. Unfortunately, Koh Tachai did not meet my expectation, but other dive sites - Koh Bon and Richelieu Rock offered amazing scenes. The crew members and Van the dive guide were all friendly, as well. I'd recommend Giamani.

    Great boat, great dive team, great crew, great diving, great food! What else could you want? Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin & Richelieu, Thailand in March

    We saw at least 80% of all the fish in the dive books. There is also loads of macro life, various shrimps, crabs, nudibrachs and a wide variety of corals. Great under water topography makes for interesting underwater scenery. Above water the dive team were professional, knowledgable, safe and great company in the evenings too. The boat crew tended to our every need, they even hang up your wetsuits at the end of each dive. Chef was fantastic and cooked a huge variety of quality food.

    Amazing liveaboard experience! Hin Deang, Hin Muang, Koh Haa, Phi Phi & Phuket, Thailand in October

    Diving Hin Muang (purple reef) was the diving highlight. But really Ricardo, Thomas and everyone else on the boat were amazing and treated us like family. The food was great too -- fresh baked bread! Highly recommend.

    Could not have asked for better Koh Raya Noi & Phi Phi Islands, Thailand in July

    Even though we were to only ones to register for the trip they didn't cancel or change our itinerary so we ended up with a private trip for the same price! Everyone treated us like friends!

    Amazing Koh Raya Noi & Phi Phi Islands, Thailand in July

    We were actually very unlucky and had bad visibility for our diving but Ricardo managed to adjust and we had an awesome time anyway.

    Great diving on a great boat! Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin & Richelieu, Thailand in March

    We are a family of 5 with children in their early twenties and went on a 5-day trip to Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock. Having dived in some 15 countries around the world, we choose Thailand primarily for visiting family reasons and only had modest expectations for the marine life and the quality of the diving. How wrong we were! The abundance of marine life particularly at Richelieu Rock exceeds anything we've previously seen in Egypt, Indonesia or the Maldives. OK, the plankton was so rich that visibility suffered particularly at Richelieu below 15 meters. However, that's probably the price you have to pay for getting all these huge schools of so many large fish in addition to all the slugs and other small stuff. Also, visibility was better at the bolder structures of the Similans. Being our first liveaboard trip we can only compare with our previous visits to dedicated dive resorts around the world and the Giamani experience came out very well in that comparison. Ricardo, Martino and Sini - the dive crew - was highly professional and knowledgable, the equipment held high standards and the Thai boat crew was both helpful and very competent. The boat was well maintained and of high standard and we were very happy that we had chosen a boat with a guest capacity of only 10, i.e. small enough that you could establish a friendly, casual atmosphere with everyone. The only slight negative comment regards the food. Not that it was bad, rather that it was mostly bland, probably in order to not offend anyone. Being great fans of Thai food it was a pity that the cook was so cautious with regards to the spices. On the other hand, the selection was wide at every meal and even the vegetarian members of the family had no problem finding alternatives. We are indeed considering another trip, possibly up to Burma and would certainly choose Giamani again.

    Highly professional and competent crew. Well maintained boat of high standard. Great with only 10 guests onboard.

    Crew was amazing, Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Surin & Richelieu, Thailand in November

    We were probably unlucky with the big things, no sharks, no mantas. But crew, boat, and the nicety of the whole package more tha made up for it. Ricardo, Martino and Megan was outstanding, and Ricardo is a caracter you always dream of meeting.
