Incredibly accomodating and friendly liveaboard

The diva Andaman is a gorgeous sailing boat that is comfortable and peaceful. Unfortunately, I went when the sail were not installed and did not see the boat once operating with the sails. I have chosen the Diva Andaman for sailing too and was a bit frustrated to not see the sails. The quality of the stay and the friendliness of the team made it up for it. Diving crew is extremely professional and was looking every time for the best diving option even though we had some wind and some sites were inaccessible. Highly recommended!

Great experience.

Watching the entire crew work as a team. Well done. The dive crew in particular were. Amazing. The experience on Richelieu Rock probably being the most memorable overall. I loved having a massage on deck on this wonderful boat, and in the company of Charlee.

Incredible

The whole trip was outstanding! The food was incredible. Each meal was prepared from scratch each day and it was obvious that every ingredient was fresh and top quality. The beds were a little hard for me, but it didn't diminish my ability to rest each night. And the DIVING!!! Each dive was outstanding. Our dive guide, Caro, obviously knew the area well and made the trip easy to enjoy. As for the boat, it's obviously loved and well-maintained. I would definitely do this trip again.

Amazing boat and crew, very relaxed and beautiful setting for a diving vacation!

The moment I saw the wooden boat I knew I'd love it. Colour of the natural wood was shinning under the sunset lighting, just beautiful. I got to learn a bit about maintainance of the boat while on board, really respect the amount of works and effort they put into it. Despite a bit mechanical issues during the trip, all crew worked very hard and to solve the problems, for me it really hardly affected anything. It is super comfortable and spacious, lots of room to hang, chill, read or do some yoga moves if you are like me and can't stay still. The diving in the Similans were nice, definitely not the best I've ever had (I'm a spoiled diver) but still enjoyed all the dives! It was sad to see some of the reefs being dead and really makes you wonder on what time scale it happened. Did not see whale shark but it's just wildlife and nature. The dive guides on board were super experienced with the area, AND more importantly, they really try to make the dives as great as possible, always finding things to show you, know the dive site inside out (literally, with all the swim throughs). Diving was made very easy, crew help you with all the equipments and the Dingy picks you up -- there were a few times it took a bit too long waiting for the Dingy on the surface, so could've been improved, but mainly I think it was because one of the two dingy was down and being repaired. The food was awesome, it takes strategy to not to overeat, especially before the dives. The boat is very well prepared for the divers, with vitamins, bug spray, aloe, all the shower stuffs, med kits and safety kits are all well maintained and stored onboard. I brought a lot of the things myself but really turned out unnecessary on Diva!

Excellent first experience on a live aboard!

As my first live aboard, I can't compare this trip to any others but I feel like Diva Andaman has set the bar pretty high. The crew to guest ratio was 1:1 which made for amazing, personalized service. If I reached to undo the velcro on my wetsuit, somebody was unzipping me before I could get to it. We were greeted at the end of every dive with a tray of speciality refreshments, each time something different, and each time delicious. Deploying a SMB during the safety stop always resulted in a waiting dinghy by the time we surfaced, and little things like help getting fins on or off or other miscellaneous things made me feel pampered throughout the entire experience. And the food! I couldn't say enough about the amazing food continuously service aboard. Highly recommend the Diva Andaman.

Interesting trip on the Similan Islands

Diving! It is very nice to lay down outside of the boat, the short trip to an island, the friendlyness of all. The cabins are not so nice. The bathroom was dirty in the shower area, the bed very hard.

Amazing boat, crew and service. Very comfortable cabin, and a five-star experience from beginning to end. The dives were fantastic and the attention we received from everyone was simply VIP level all the way. I cannot recommend the Diva Andaman highly enough.

Would love to go again!

Unfortunately I broke my foot from a fall on the boat, which prevented me from diving during the 2nd week. Despite this accident, I still very much enjoyed the trip. People were fabulous, and food out of this world. However, the service and support received were the very best!!

Memorable trip and thoroughly enjoyed. If diving itself is the primary purpose of the trip then this is not the one for you, but for a balanced diving holiday one of the best

Wonderful lifetime experience. The only disappointment was no sailing as advertised. There seems to be an issue with the mast or crew to do this.
