Now in its 23rd year of operation, MV Nangnuan continues to be as popular as ever. Sailing twice a week to The Similan Islands and Koh Bon, just eight lucky guests are able to join each trip, thus ensuring an unbeatably-personal service.

Unlike many other Similan diving safari boats which fill up their air-conditioned cabins with divers of all levels and a variety of budgets and needs, MV Nangnuan is designed for experienced divers who don’t want to waste money or spend time in large groups. Those diving from this characterful boat need to be certified to 30m, but those who aren’t can easily become so on the first dive of the trip. From then on, the remaining 8 dives are enjoyed around the best dive sites of the Similans and a visit to Koh Bon.

Also in contrast to the majority of liveaboard boats which sail in the evening from Khao Lak & Phuket, MV Nangnuan sets sail in the morning. Guests enjoy nine dives over three wonderful days and two nights before returning to port at sunset on the third day.

Diver-MV-NangnuanThe eight diving guests and two dive staff sleep on the semi-exposed top deck of the boat, enjoying the (mosquito-free) sea breeze without the noise of compressors required for air conditioning. Meals are enjoyed on a large dining table on the lower/main deck, where the diving platform and gear can be found.

For those who care more about the environment and great diving than about wasting money on luxury, diving from MV Nangnuan is the only choice for the best value Similan & Koh Bon diving trips. This boat is extremely popular, so booking in advance is essential.

MV Nangnuan Courses

Booking / Enquiry

Taking part in a PADI diving course is exciting and rewarding. Doing so aboard a liveaboard diving safari is something special. The most popular PADI course on MV Nangnuan is the AOW (Advanced Open Water Diver) course, and it is extremely good value. At 18,255 THB, guests get a day’s diving before Nangnuan departs, then complete the second half of the course on board. This price is unbeatable, and even includes everything you need. In addition, the lucky guests can enjoy more fun diving on the liveaboard trip, because most of the ‘learning dives’ are done locally. For Open Water divers who are not yet certified to dive to depths of 30m, the cheapest and quickest way to do so is the Adventure Deep single dive, which can be done on board, for just 1,800 THB.
