Like most cases in life, you can apply the adage 'you get what you pay for' to a liveaboard trip.
There are many different boats to chose from, budget price to high end luxury boats, some offering more compact three day trips, others offering five, six or even nine day trips which include Burma's Mergui Archipelago. All liveaboards are essentially the same, they offer diving from a platform which you can 'liveaboard'. It is the service provided and the facilities on board that can add that extra something you are looking for.

"We contacted Thailand Dive and Sail beginning August 2012 for our October holiday. Having booked into a resort we requested daytrip diving plus OWD courses for our two teenagers. Rick had the complicated task of satisfying this request outside normal diving season and he came up trumps. A great French speaking instructor was provided for our kids and we now have an additional two qualified OWD in the family. We did two day's diving from Phuket, one exclusive day's diving on the local Boonsung Wreck and one day's diving in the Similans. Rick and Clive personally did the transfers to Phuket in their fun pickup, all the equipment provided was brand new Aqualung and we had a fantastic four days diving. Don't hesitate to use Thailand Dive and Sail for your daytrip organisation. We will be back to test their live on-board services in the near future. Thanks guys for Diving with a smile ;)"★★★★★ by Ziquet68 28.10.2012 0.3
