MV Oktavia

tab bg image

Visiting the Similan Islands with the MV Oktavia will give you the chance to explore the best dive sites in Thailand aboard one of the most comfortable budget boats available.

Travel out early in the evening, at approximately 17:00, getting to the Similans in time for a good nights sleep before 2-5 days of serious diving. A professional diving team take good care of you throughout your trip and a dedicated boat team look after your every need on board: from an experienced captain, boat boys and engineer, to a great cook who always seems to have a fresh selection of food waiting for you. You will arrive back in Khao Lak full, satisfied and having had an excellent Similan diving trip.

The MV Oktavia, at 30m long, is one of the larger and more spacious boats taking divers to the Similans. It was built in 2003 but was refurbished in 2007 making it one of the best maintained boats on offer. This liveaboard boat can take up to 21 divers, all in standard twin or double air-conditioned cabins sharing 4 shower room facilities. There are 2 ensuite Master cabins onboard, these are very spacious and are also air-conditioned. There is a large dining area where the Thai and International meals are served and on the sundeck is a shaded area for relaxing between dives. A newly extended dive deck sits on the back of the boat; this area has ample space for kitting up and preparing for a dive. The MV Oktavia has Nitrox on board for divers wishing to use it.
