At 27 metres in length, MV Camic is a typical-size liveaboard boat which sails around the Similan Islands & Richelieu Rock. The boat has earned a reputation as something a bit special. MV Camic is a well-known boat for its flexible schedule and delicious food. The mouth-watering meals are something to look forward to throughout the diving day. This includes Thai and western cuisine, served buffet style.

The boat has two types of cabins, which are master en suite with double beds upstairs, and twin-bunk cabins on the lower deck. All cabins are air conditioned and clean. There is a covered communal area where the delicious meals are enjoyed. On the top and at the front of the boat are areas for guests to enjoy the sea breeze, sunbathe, gaze at star-filled skies or watch out for jumping dolphins.

Dive-deck-On-Board-MV-CamicTrips are flexible depending on each customer's needs, and the itinerary rotates on a weekly basis, making sure that different dive sites are visited all teh time. Sundays - Wednesdays Camic is at The Similan islands, then it sails north to Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock & Koh Bon for 3 days. 

Camic guests can choose which date they join and for how long they stay aboard. This is acheived by the main boat staying out at sea all season, and guests are transferred out by speedboat from Khao Lak in the morning of their first day. Then after one, two or three nights on board, they are returned to Khao Lak by speedboat. The main boat does not stay moored in one place or at one island. It cruises around on a weekly schedule, visiting all the best dive sites in the area.

The boat visits The Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock. There is time to relax and really get into the fun diving, or even take part in PADI dive course to increase your certification and experience. PADI courses on Camic are unbeatable value. In fact, excellent value is pretty much what MV Camic trips are all about. Air-conditioned comfort and safe diving are all that many people need, without breaking the bank on expensive luxuries.

MV Camic Courses

Booking / Enquiry

Not only is MV Camic a great-value and easy Similans liveaboard to do fun dives from, it is also one of the best and least expensive to take part in a PADI diving course while on board. There is a wide range of diving courses that can be completed while you enjoy cruising around the crystal-clear waters of the Similan and Surin Islands. Our unbeatable prices are inclusive of materials & certification. Please take a look at the table below and be sure to let us know in advance about any onboard PADI diving courses that you are interested in. In most cases, it is possible at short notice. But to ensure the materials are in your preferred language and the instructor will be available at the perfect time and for the right dives of your cruise, it is a good idea to book, or at least enquire, before the trip.

Please note that the dives are not ‘extra to the cruise.’ They are part of your chosen cruise package, but you will be taught by a qualified and experienced PADI instructor for that many of your Camic liveaboard cruise dives.

Had a great time on the Camic! Very pleasant trip with super friendly and competent staff. I'm definitely coming back😄 Would've loved to see some mantas or whalesharks but no luck this time.

I enjoyed my dives and all the dive sites except one due to a strong current. The dive leader was great! Good food and accommodations were comfortable. One complaint though. Clear instructions were given to guests to throw nothing overboard. However, I witnessed several times after meals staff throwing left over food overboard and dumping dirty dish water into the sea.

Smooth operation. though people are coming and going everyday, you feel valued and special to your dive leader and your dive group. Food is good. Crew is great and take care of your needs. One point, on one day it was scheduled to do 3 dives at Koh Boh (sp) to see the mantas. It was clear after the first dive that the vis was bad, currents very strong, and the chance of seeing mantas was low. Instead of just sticking to the schedule i think the dive site should have been changed. Dive leaders were great ...read more

Both crew and the Instructor were both very professional and friendly. Excellent diving! I'll withdraw a few points due to a stomach issue which had to come from the food onboard. Having said that, I was the only one with issues so it could be just my stomach being oversensitive.

I had a great time on a short (1 night) stay on the Camic. I have only good things to say about the Dive staff and crew, food, and facilities. Rented full gear with no issues. Always felt safe diving. And of course, the Similan islands were beautiful !!!

from 1st contact with Jamie everything went smoothly. he replied sooner and more reliably than any of the other dive shops i contacted. and he is sincere. he responded to every question almost immediately (does he ever sleep) and he made all our transportation arrangements as well. the camic is good, its not luxury living, but we knew that. and the staff and dive instructors were all awesome. its a bit chaotic as everyone jump s in, they could space everyone out a bit, but overall first class. thank you ...read more
