MV DiveRACE Class E Runs Trips In Other Countries [Show]

MV DiveRACE Class E is a brand-new luxury diving yacht designed & purpose built by professionals to guarantee comfortable Similan Islands cruises for to up to 20 lucky guests. DiveRACE Class E is 35m long & 7.5m wide, and can easily sail through any sea conditions it’s likely to meet, while offering great stability, safety & comfort for all on board. 

Dive RACE Class E was created to be a top-quality diving ship, giving passengers comfort & convenience at all times. There is a large sundeck, 10 comfortable cabins, and indoor & outdoor communal areas. DiveRACE Class E guests can relax between dives at some of the best locations in the world, including Richelieu Rock.

Dive RACE Class E is actually able to accommodate 28 lucky guests, but when in Thailand its quad bunk cabins are limited to only take two guests, therefore reducing the total guest capacity to 20. All cabins have air conditioning & private en suite bathrooms. The main-deck luxury cabins have large windows with a small balcony. The low but comfortable beds can be arranged to be a double or two singles.

Saloon-onboard-DiveRACE-class-EOn the wall, inside the large saloon/lounge, sits a 60” 3D television which is ideal for playing movies & diving videos at any time of day. The food is simply delicious and consists of local & western cuisine, served throughout the day. You are welcomed back from each dive with a hot towel and a smile. The whole team are service minded & friendly. Dive RACE Class E also offers a Thai massage service, which can be enjoyed in a private room or outside. The diving staff are happy to help find all kinds of marine life or other special diving requests. There are PADI courses commonly taught on Dive RACE Class E cruises, too.

Please note that some websites are misleading about the length of the trips. A 14-dive 4-night trip should be shown as 4D/4N because it departs in the evening, with no diving on that day. But some websites like to make the trips look longer than they really are* and show the trips as 5D/4N, and the 5D/5N trips as 6D/5N. 

*Maybe to make the 'cost per day' look unrealistically-cheap.

Phenomenal experience on DiveRACE! This was our first liveaboard trip, and nothing was short of amazing. Friendly crew, excellent service, delicious food (homemade!), and great divemasters. The rooms were spacious and very clean. I would highly recommend Dive Race. The crew and service were truly topnotch!
