Deep Andaman Queen Runs Trips In Other Countries [Show]

MV Deep Andaman Queen is a very popular luxury scuba diving liveaboard boat that sails to the best dive sites of Thailand, and sometimes into Burma’s Mergui Archipelago. All cabins have private en suite bathrooms & air conditioning. There are several cabin types to choose from, including quad, triple, twin, double & master.

NEW for 2019 the boat is getting a full renovation, making it longer. There will also be one extra Master cabin and one extra standard twin cabin. Images will be uploaded as we get them from July - October 2019. We already have most cabin images.

On the lower deck there are three 'standard' cabins, which have air conditioning and private bathrooms. These include 2x twin, a triple and one with four beds. On the main deck Deep Andaman Queen has two deluxe twin cabins, three deluxe double cabins and two master cabins. All have large windows and doors which open ouot onto the deck.

There are many wonderful things about this purpose-built diving boat, including its comfortable cabins, large communal areas and diving facitilities such as the huge diving deck. Starting with the dive deck & platform, which enables everyone to move around safely and easily before or after a dive. There are areas and rinse tanks for cleaning equipment & cameras, plus freshwater showers. Being purpose built means that everything is in the correct place, such as easy to access or out of the way. This includes the boat's compressor and Nitrox membrane system. For ease and convenience of scuba diving entry and exit, it is a dream-like boat. In addition, there are motorised tender dinghies to retrieve divers and transport guests to the pristine beaches which the Similans are famous for.

However, it’s not just the diving platform that makes a great liveaboard boat. Diving guests are only underwater for four up to hours per day, and non-diving guests are very welcome to join trips – at a reduced price. The other twenty hours of each day aboard Deep Andaman Queen can be spent in wood-lined air-conditioned cabins, on the sundeck or shaded lounge at the very top of the boat, in the saloon or the open air dining area at the back of the main deck. There’s always room to socialize or somewhere to get some privacy.

Deep Andaman QueenSafety is the first and most-important thing for diving safaris to the Similan Islands, and the professional organization and on-board facilities and equipment enable Deep Andaman Queen to stand out among the others. However, from a guest’s point of view, the whole reason for going is to relax and/or have fun. The crew and diving staff on Deep Andaman Queen pride themselves on ensuring that every guest, whatever diver level or cabin price paid, receives a professional & friendly service, and has lots of safe fun and/or relaxation.

There are many reasons to choose Deep Andaman Queen for a Similan diving safari, including the new boat & its facilities, its staff, and the wonderful food to be enjoyed on board. Scheduled transfers from around Phuket and Khao Lak are for free, and the boat receives no more than 25 guests on each trip, ensuring that there is plenty of space to enjoy every moment on board.

The trips are usually four days & nights in length, with some five days & nights during peak-season periods. Once in a while, Deep Andaman Queen sails into Burma for week-long trips in the Mergui Archipelago.

Booking / Enquiry

Deep Andaman Queen has several itineraries, as listed below. All trips have free scheduled pick ups from around Phuket and Khao Lak on departure day, as well as free drop offs after the trip.

Trips leave in the evening on departure day, and return mid-late afternoon on return day.

Please note that some other websites show the 4D/4N trips to be 5D/4N, but this is misleading because you're on board for less than 96 hours. Also the longer trips at Christmas and New Year should be shown as 5D/5N, not 6D/5N. The other websites try to make it look like you're getting a longer trip (which you're not) and if they advertise a 'per day' rate, it's easier to mislead you further. We show it as it is, and we are honest as possible.

The itineraries below are the most-common for each trip, but these can sometimes be changed for a number of reasons. Small changes are made due to weather & sea conditions, special marine life sightings, overcrowded dive sites, local-authorities' instructions, and the needs & requests of the paying guests. The safety & comfort of all guests is most important at all times.
