The dives were expertly led and we had a great time.

Diving the Boon Sung wreck - very good visibility and lots to see. The big gathering of rays at Richelieu Rock and sheer density of fish around, despite the relatively poorer visibility in rough conditions.

Recommended for
Solid dive leadership and crew, good food and the people on the trip.

A great experience with a well organised team giving excellent briefings prior to each dive.

I would have to say the highlights were the pristine reef condition within the Similan Island National Park and Richelieu Rock as well as the prolific fish life. This is a very healthy reef supporting a diverse eco system. Best diving is around 15 - 20 metres giving plenty of bottom time to explore.

Great friendly crew and fellow divers. Dive Master, Steve, was helpful and available for advice. Logistics from pick up at hotel, and return from boat was excellent.

My first liveaboard but definitely not my last!

Fresh cappuccino every morning is a real plus for me. Also the dives were amazing and the guides do their best show you all the cool stuff without compromising the reef

Ekk our dive guide was amazing and showed us so much. Crew were brilliant at getting your ready for the dive and making sure you got on and off the boat safely and in the water in the right place. Dive sites were in such good condition and full of life. Hire kit was good quality.

Recommended for
6 of the 14 dives were great (the last 6), the rental equipment only failed twice (1 aborted dive), the nitrox lasted for 8 of 14 dives before machine broke down.

Outstanding

Just spent 5 nights and 6 days aboard the Deep Andaman Queen travelling through the Similan Islands Thailand. Amazing trip and will definitely do it again with this crew. Diving - sensational. So many fish you would have to shoo them away to take a photo of something. Massive variety and more fish I’ve ever seen travelling around different countries diving. 4 dives a day and each better than the last. Crew - second to none. Steve runs the boat like a true professional and with 20 years diving and instructing in the Similan Islands, his knowledge of the area is remarkable. The rest of the crew are equally brilliant. From the cook through to the dive guides, everyone was exceptional. Special mention to our dive guide Nui ❤️ Food - you will not lose weight on this trip. The variety, freshness and quality of the food was incredible. With a Thai dish and a westerner dish at each meal, everyone is catered for. Food better than most restaurants in Thailand. Rooms - we travelled as a couple and the room had enough space for us to be comfortable with each room having its own ensuite. Clean and well kept. I recommend ear buds as the generator can be a little noisy if you are a light sleeper but ear buds blocked it out no worries. Boat - plenty of space to relax and chill between dives. 3 different decks and 2 are shaded. Spotlessly clean and well maintained. Overall I couldn’t fault the trip. The other guests were great. The dive briefings thorough and informative. Safety was a big factor and nothing was too much trouble. We will dive with Steve and his crew any day of the week.

My Spectacular Trip on DAQ

The Chef put on a theme meal every night that catered for the guests cultures and amazed us every time (Thai Night, Japanese Night, American night, BBQ night, etc) The crew were very experienced and excited to show us the sites. The briefings were detailed and fun and gave a wealth of history to the locations. The facility’s were clean, spacious and comfortable. The Dive sites were tremendous!!!!! I can confidently speak for all the guests on this trip by saying that the chef and the boat crew were amazing and made every day a unique experience!! Special mention to Nui, Steve & the chef. Thank you Marshall
