The 23m MV Marco Polo Liveaboard offers 3/2, 4/4, and 6/7 day/night dive trips to the Similans, Surin, and Richelieu Rock from November to April. The boat has 6 air-conditioned double cabins with ensuite bathrooms, catering to 12 guests. All cabins open to the outer deck to give guests the full benefit of the cool sea breeze. There are only 3 dive groups on board, guaranteeing excellent service, stress-free set-ups, and fewer divers on the dive sites.
After dives, the Party deck offers plenty of room to enjoy meals and relax in a shaded space. The spacious indoor salon with TV and music station lets guests view underwater footage or listen to music. This is also where all the freshly cooked meals will be served - a mix of international and Thai cuisine prepared by an experienced Thai cook. Upstairs, guests will find the cozy Sundeck, where they can enjoy their time between the dives and the sunset after the last dive of the day.
Diving takes place at the best dive sites in the Similan Islands, at Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, and Richelieu Rock. With only 12 divers on board, the Marco Polo is very flexible and can schedule more advanced dive sites for the more experienced divers on board, while others may prefer more relaxed dive sites. The Plateau and its nearby Pinnacle at Koh Tachai and Koh Bon’s Pinnacle and The Ridge are close to the fantastic Richelieu Rock and are solid components of the Marco Polo's dive schedule. In the Similans, the best dive sites are picked depending on the weather, drift, and traffic to avoid dive sites getting too busy.

Knowledge dive guides paired with good food make a great vacations
The trip was amazingly organised. We had some little surprises and the crew reacted very well, e.g. the king decided to dive our dive spot and our tour had to re-route. The alternative dive spot was brilliant and not commonly visited. Our boat was the only one which certainly makes a great experience. The timing of the dives was generally planned so that we were rarely in the water with divers from other boats. We had a chance for sunrise and sunset dives. Divers were divided based on experience - beginner, advanced and experienced - and 2 jump groups. We had 3 dive guides - Thomas, Pauline, Maren. The dive guides were very knowledgeable and good in pointing out marine life. The food was amazing - generally one Thai dish and one European dish and both were very good. The crew was very friendly and super helpful. I would recommend this trip anytime. Thank you, Thomas, Pauline and Maren for a great trip.

Marco Polo Adventure
I recently had the pleasure of spending 6 days/6 nights on the Marco Polo Liveaboard run by Sea Bees for an adventure to the Similan Islands. The trip was great in every way. The Sea Bees Office Staff were friendly and welcoming The Marco Polo may be a small boat, but it is comfortable and friendly, the cabins are functional and more roomy than I expected and the size of the boat means everyone mixes ensuring a great atmosphere. The big plus is the Food is amazing The Dive Crew of Maren, Misha and Dave made the trip one to remember, thanks all. Especially Misha, who was mine and my buddies Dive Guide, for making trip one to remember I would 100% recommend Sea Bees and the Marco Polo
