MV Giamani is a purpose-built diving liveaboard that has a greta reputation for luxury, great service, and a wde range of wonderful diving trips in Thailand. Although not the largest of luxury Similan liveaboard boats, MV Giamani has a huge appeal and for very good reason. There are just five cabins on board, and each is extremely well equipped with en suite bathroom. The passenger limit is just ten lucky guests, and they enjoy the sociable and friendly atmosphere aboard, along with excellent service from the staff & crew.

There are four deluxe cabins on the boat’s main deck. Each has a double and a single bed, making them ideal for couples as well as travelling friends. Even solo travelers can join the trips. On the upper deck, there is the new master cabin, which has a sofa, mini bar and unbeatable views of Thailand’s Andaman Sea. Luxury does not need to be on a huge boat, with twenty or more other guests. It can be enjoyed on a mid-size diving liveaboard, and at a reasonable price.

Upper-deck-onboard-MV-GiamaniAnother reason to choose MV Giamani for your diving cruise in Thailand is that trips alternate between The Similan Islands & Richelieu Rock (4D/4N), and Hin Daeng, Koh Haa & Koh Phi Phi (2D/2N). In fact, instead of choosing between these two wonderful options, many guests join both, and stay on board for nearly a whole week.

Facilities on MV Giamani are all up to date and there to ensure that everyone enjoys a great time, in safety & comfort. There are instructors on board to help and teach lower level divers, and there is Nitrox and other features for more experienced divers to fully enjoy the best diving opportunities in Thailand. This includes technical diving and rebreather facilities. Finally, unlike most other Similan Islands liveaboard diving boats which transfer guests 100km by road to Tab Lamu Pier in Khao Lak, MV Giamani departs from Phuket’s Chalong Pier, this means that guests get to enjoy more time on board, sailing around Thailand’s crystal-clear tropical waters, rather than stuck in a hot minivan.

MV Giamani Itinerary

Booking / Enquiry

MV Giamani has several itineraries, so please choose carefully from the list below to match your chosen trip.

Most trips sail in the evening from Phuket's Chalong Pier, but some trips leave earlier or from Khao Lak's Tab Lamu Pier.

Guests who combine 2D2N (south) with 4D4N (Similan) trips can stay on board or spend a few hours in Phuket while the boat is restocked with provisions.

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.
