MV Andaman Tritan
MV Andaman Tritan is a popular lower mid budget Similan liveaboard.
It’s one of the cheapest boats with en-suite double cabins and the single cabin is great value for solo travelers (most boats don’t have single cabins).
While the communal areas of Andaman Tritan are not as spacious as boats like Hallelujah or Pawara it does have nicely presented cabins at an affordable price, and as it only takes 17 diving guests you will never feel crowded and you’ll get plenty of personal attention.
In recent seasons Andaman Tritan (formerly called DiveRACE) has been a “lucky” boat that always seems to be in the right place at the right time for seeing whale sharks. But if the big stuff isn’t around the dive guides are great at spotting the macro critters for you to photograph.
There are two master cabins on the main deck with en-suite bathrooms. Master cabins each have a double bed plus an extra single bunk.
Also on the main deck are three deluxe cabins in either twin bed or double bed layout. Deluxe cabins have private en-suite bathrooms.
There are two standard cabins on the upper deck with twin bunk beds. The two standard cabins on the lower deck are each sold as single occupancy cabins. Standard cabins do not have private bathrooms.
