What is it like to join a Similan Islands Liveaboard with MV Oktavia?

Whether you have years of experience or new to the diving world, the thought of joining your first Similan Islands Liveaboard Cruise may be somewhat daunting:  “What is life on-board like?  Who will I be sharing the trip with?  What will the food be like?  Will there be any other activities other than diving?  What sort of marine life can expect to see?”

All valid questions and all ones I think this great video will help to answer for you!

Filmed during one of our 5 Day/5 Night Similan Islands Liveaboard Cruises, this wonderful video gives you a great impression of time spent on-board MV Oktavia.  Staring our passionate crew and incredible guests as they visit The Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, and Richelieu Rock, you can see first-hand the magic that waits you under the beautiful blue waters of the Andaman Sea.

Spend time on-board with an incredible mix of divers and snorkelers from around the world and make life-long friends as you share this breathtaking experience together.  Meal times are a great way to get to know each other and swap your stories of the day.  With freshly prepared Thai dishes and a cold beer, what better way could there be to end each day of your adventure.

Other Activities

It’s not all about the diving though.  During the first two days we visit Similan Islands No. 4 and No. 8 (Koh Miang & Koh Similan).  Using our dingy as a taxi we’ll spend the afternoon on the white sand shores of the stunning Similan Islands where you’ll have time to stretch your legs, relax in the sun, or to climb the Viewpoint and take in the magnificent views of the bay and surrounding islands.

It’s easy to see why we have more and more returning guests each season to join our MV Oktavia family.   Our new season starts 23rd October 2017 and runs through until May 2018, so please check out our Prices & Availability Page to find the date that suits you!
