MV Andaman reviews

GREAT VIBES
“I went into this liveaboard experience alone and blindly. I am a single girl that just wants to dive. That being said, being alone can be very lonely or you can meet awesome people. Which is what happened! The staff was amazing, both the diving staff and the Thai crew. Two thumbs up to the Thai crew who knew everything I needed before I even knew I needed it. The food was amazing.. they also had options for vegans/vegetarians (and not lame options either). The dive crew really made you feel at home and they always had cool things to point out underwater. The best part of the trip is the people you meet along the way. I’m now in a private facebook group with the people I met on the liveaboard and we all keep up with each others travels/adventures. Unforgettable experience and totally worth it!!” Read review on Trip Advisor

Great first liveaboard!
“Diving: The diving was really enjoyable and manageable with 4 dives / day spaced out. The dives themselves were well led.
People: There was a good mix of people from USA, France, China, Korea, Russia etc. age range 30yo+ who made it a very relaxed and pleasant environment.
Crew and dive masters: Well organised and nice crew who made it a smooth and easy trip.
Recommended as value for money.” Read review on Trip Advisor
