Merdeka 3 is the ideal boat for a 5D/4N cruise that offers more than just diving. Each trip’s itinerary ensures that every guest relaxes and enjoys every moment on board. The diving is normally done at the best dive sites before day trip boats arrive, and although there are dives on offer later in the day as well, you can have a free massage, go snorkelling or kayaking, visit beaches, caves and even Koh Phi Phi at night.
There are six air-conditioned cabins on Merdeka 3, each with its own private bathroom, and most with huge sea-view windows. Most cabins have a double bed, but some can be configured as two single beds.
Also known as ‘spaboat’ because you can enjoy free massages and spa treatment, and most alcoholic drinks are included in the rates as well.
The boat offers trips that depart every Monday morning, all year round, and return on Friday lunchtimes. During the high season the trips include Koh Haa, Hin Daeng and Koh Rok, as well as Koh Phi Phi. In the low season, the boat goes to Racha Yai & Noi before going to Phi Phi. Every dive is planned to be in the best location, and at the best time of day, hoping to avoid crowds. Other activities are included in the rates, and even for those who have never dived before there’s the chance to do a try dive for free.

Merdeka 3 Itinerary
Merdeka 3 has two itineraries.
During the low season (May - October) the boat sails to Racha Yai & Racha Noi, south of Phuket, then across to the world-famous Phi Phi islands.
In the high season (October - May) Merdeka 3 goes to Koh Phi Phi, then Koh Haa, Koh Rok and Hin Daeng & Hin Muang.
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.
