From October 2017, Nemo 1 is a brand-new purpose-built diving liveaboard with a steel hull. At 27m in length and 5.5m wide, it is easily big enough to accommodate its capacity of 20 overnight guests as well as sail through any rough seas that may be encountered. There are two types of cabin; four bunk & double bed. All are air-conditioned, clean and ensure a good night’s sleep. In addition, there is a large covered outdoor dining area as well as a small lounge saloon that is air conditioned.

Nemo 1 is known as a 'platform' or 'flexible' liveaboard diving boat. This is in reference to its trips, and not the actual boat. Unlike most scheduled liveaboard trips, which normally sail out in the evening and return to port a few days later, platform boats stay out at sea all season. Divers are taken to the ship by speedboat in the morning of their first day, and they stay on Nemo 1 for one night, two nights or even three nights. This system means that you can easily fit in a liveaboard diving trip to fit your holiday schedule. Nemo 1 does not stay in one place. The boat has a weekly itinerary that visits more than 20 different diving sites. Only the very best dive spots are repeated.

Sun deckWhat makes diving from MV Nemo 1 so special is hard to define. Firstly, the pickups in the morning are guaranteed to be on time, ensuring that the speedboat leaves as scheduled and nobody is kept waiting. Dive guides and instructors are all professional and helpful, and can speak several languages. The food is delicious and plentiful and the small dive groups enjoy carefully-chosen locations under the sea. An extremely experienced Swiss couple own and run the company. They use their years of diving at The Similan Islands, Koh Bon & Koh Tachai to know what guests want, need & deserve. Everything runs just like a Swiss watch, and diving and snorkelling guests can relax and enjoy excellent trips. PADI courses are available on request. Please note that overnight divers on Nemo are required to dive with a dive computer. Those who don't have their own can borrow one for free, but only guests who book through us.

MV Nemo 1 Itinerary

Booking / Enquiry

Please carefully check the itinerary that matches your chosen trip. Nemo has several itineraries, depending on which day of the week you join.

All trips start with pick up from Khao Lak hotels (6.45-7.45am) and 8.00am departure by speedboat from Tab Lamu Pier, Khao Lak, Phang Nga.

3-4 dives per day.

Return to Tab Lamu Pier on your final day is at 4.45pm, and everyone is taken back to their chosen destinations around Khao Lak.

Beach visits are not possible at Koh Bon (no beach) or Koh Tachai (closed to the public).
On days at the Similan Islands, beach visits are sometimes possible on most days, but we never promise. This is because so many factors affect the ability and decision whether or not to visit the beach. These factors include the exact location of the boat and its next dive site, how crowded the beach may be, the time of day, and if the the boat needs to be somewhere else to fill up with fresh water.

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.

MV Nemo 1 is a great place to take part in a diving course. The Advanced Open Water (AOW) course is by far the most popular, as it allows you to become fully immersed in the divers’ environment. It involves very little theory, but lots of great diving. Nitrox, Adventure Deep are other courses which are popular on Similan liveaboard trips. Some people even decide to try diving or learn and become certified.

That was my first liveaboard and I must say you set the bar pretty high. Thank you for this beautiful adventure!

I LOVED this experience. I can't wait to come back and do this again! I am a new diver and felt so comfortable with the team and am now more independent in the water. There was so much to see in the water and I am still excited by all of it. The ease in which everything was planned helped tremendously too. The customer service was some of the best ever.

Jamie from No Troubles Just Bubbles was amazing. We had lots of questions and worries about booking something so new to us but Jamie answered them all quickly and patiently, keeping in touch with us throughout. He also helped us to book local accomodation and onward travel for after our dives. Our time on board Nemo 1 was fantastic. The whole itinerary ran smoothly, the staff on board couldn't have been more helpful and the food was delicious: easily the best we had whilst in Thailand. We did 6 dives over 2 days and each dive was to a beautiful spot in the Similan islands where we saw so much amazing marine life. Our dive guide was friendly and knowledgeable, making our time underwater worry free. We were all sad when our time was up and wished we'd booked for longer! Thoroughly recommended. ...read more
