WHAT TO EXPECT?

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.
