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.

Book with just 10% deposit.

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

This was our second trip on the Giamani, and as before, we had a wonderful time. The crew on this well-maintained boat makes everything smooth, enjoyable and safe. Our liveaboard to Myanmar and the northern islands of Thailand was perfection. The boat is comfortable, the diving is superb, and the food is very good. Every detail was handled in an organized way by Ingo and Paul, as before, and this made our vacation stress free. A big thank you to Ricardo and the excellent crew on the Giamani!

we had a splendid time aboard the Giamani and are already talking about our next voyage. The entire crew was fantastic and the diving was some of the best either of us have ever experienced. We left minor feed back with Ricardo, nothing of any concern, and found him and the crew to be friendly, accommodating, helpful, generous and professional (excepting the shuttle drivers - there was simply no need to drive that fast or dangerously). We will leave high praise everywhere that inspired us to book the Giamani in the first place. Thank you for a wonderful adventure. See you again in a year or two.

The trip was absolutely amazing. I have nothing but positive things to say about everything from booking to food, accommodations, service and diving. Truly royal service but in a relaxed friendly environment. I will happily recommend to others and will review on trip advisor shortly. Thank you again for everything on your end. Happy New Year!

The trip on the Giamani was absolutely perfect in every way. I don't have anything negative at all to say. When time allows I will put up a "peaen of praise" on Tripadvisor.

My trip was great, really great. I will be back next year. 🙂 I only had one recommendation that I already discussed with Ricardo (awesome guy, by the way). I would put a cover on the climate control keyboard, because it is really bright at night. Besides that, really, really good.

Thank you Paul! It was great & too short!!! Love the crew and had an interesting mix of nationalities, our own United Nations! Your recommendation was splendid and I highly recommend your services as well as the Giamani. Ricardo was excellent as you shared and we had lot on common with being instructors & all. I’m glad I went with the room to myself. I got some decent pics, nothing Nat Geo worthy. Dropped my wide angle, so it will need minor repair. Tried my super macro at R Rock, which didn’t work too well due to a total washing machine of swirling currents! Oh well, Mother Nature has a great sense of humor, even in Thailand I see! Except for minor initial taxi issue, it was as good if not better than you promised. Thanks for everything, especially taking care to reassure me as a solo lady!!!

Hi, Paul! Thanks, we have enjoyed our diving indeed. Itinerary is really nice – allows a full introduction to Andaman diving. Everything worked well. Equipment worked well and Ricardo went an extra mile to bring us white wine, so we had a very nice time.

This was just awesome! Ricardo and his team are incredible. I just wrote a review…. It will be difficult to beat this trip!! Thanks, Anne, Jan 2015
