cheap Phuket liveaboard
Update 2018 – This boat is no longer running
Scuba Adventure is a cheap Phuket liveaboard that dives north to the Similan Islands as well as south to Hin Daeng, Hin Muang and Phi Phi islands. These trips can be combined to make an excellent 7 day dive safari to all the best dive sites in the south Andaman sea region.
