Giamani at Phi Phi

Giamani liveaboard

Phuket based liveaboard Giamani was built in 1998 to IMO standards and was converted into a Similan diving liveaboard in 2007. As well as a 4 day Similan/Richelieu trip Giamani also has an excellent 2 day 2 night itinerary to Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa and Phi Phi. Combining the two trips makes a complete Andaman sea dive safari.

Giamani is a strong, reliable craft with all safety features in place. You can feel the quality when you are aboard her.

Taking just 10 divers, you are assured of personal service and plenty of space on Giamani. No crowded dive deck or dive sites.

Giamani gets especially well reviewed for the excellent food on board, a fusion of Thai, Asian and European. The tour leader is also very well regarded.

Giamani is one of the few Thailand liveaboards still departing from Phuket.

“About the boat Giamani and the crew I can only be ravingly positive. Extremely well organised, super personal service (almost embarrassing sometimes), great crew and super dive guides.
Ricardo is the face of the team, but the whole crew deserves a big thumbs up.” Full review on Trip Advisor

“Great team lead by Ricardo (skipper and dive-master) and his colleagues Francesco and Guido. I found the following were excellent…” Full review on Trip Advisor
