Run by an extremely-professional but friendly European team, MY Genesis 1 is a very popular liveaboard diving boat based in Khao Lak. Genesis sails with no more than 12 lucky divers to The Similan Islands for three days & two nights, then after a night in port visits Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock, which are easily Thailand’s best diving spots. Therefore, guests can choose which area best suits their diving level and experience, and many stay on board for the full 6D/5N to see all of the best diving Thailand has to offer.

My-Genesis-1-liveaboard-BoatThe boat is 25m long and has seven air-conditioned cabins. Five are twin bunks, and the other two are singles. Each cabin has its own air conditioning remote control, enabling guests to adjust the temperature and get a good night’s sleep in preparation for the best diving experience. The attention to detail by the local crew and western staff ensures that guests (both divers & non-divers) enjoy safe & comfortable, but fun & friendly trips.

Unlike most other Similan Islands liveaboard diving boats, Genesis sets sail in the morning, but not too early. Divers on Genesis still get to enjoy three dives on the first & final days of each cruise, and four on the middle day. The 3D/2N trips alternate between the two main diving areas, instead of trying to cram all of the dive sites into one typical 4D/4N trip. Also, some divers prefer to only visit the easier Similans, or the more challenging ‘northern sites.’

The trips to the Similan Islands have excellent diving at great dive sites, plus you get the chance to visit the iconic Donald Duck Bay and get some sand between your toes. Open Water Divers or above will really enoy these trips.

The 'Northern Tour' starts at Koh Bon, and then you dive at Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock. There are no beach visits on this itinerary, but the three dive locations are the best in Thailand. Open Water divers can join, but Advanced or experienced divers will get more out of the trips.

For certified divers, Nitrox fills are for free on Genesis, and there is also a range of diving courses that can be taken, all at competitive rates. The equipment, facilities, food and whole experience are excellent on MY Genesis 1, and these are just some of the reasons it’s so popular.

scubaD Genesis
Dived: 20 April 2019
Boat rating: 9/10
Wonderful experience. The Thai crew was fantastic and eager to help all the divers. The food was also wonderful! The dive guides were very organized and we had a clear schedule daily. There are only 12 divers, which created a cozier and more intimate atmosphere. Majority of divers were between 30-45 years old but still great for divers of all ages (I’m 23). The boat itself was in great condition, as was all the dive equipmen t. Rooms were a little tight, but expected at this price range. They did have lots of storage though, with 2-3 cubby holes per person in each room. Great trip overall! ...read more

The boat was ok for 2 nights and 6 divers plus 2 DM´s. Not sure how it would be with 12 plus 3 DM´s on board. The staff did a good job, especially the 2 chefs! The cabins are missing a few inches if you want to be able to change comfortably standing inside with door closed. 1 shower, one toilet and one combined shower/toilet. Was not a problem with 8 on board. AC was good and did not make any noise. For a longer trip I thin k we would choose a bigger boat. Over all it was a good trip on board for 3 days! ...read more

This review will be in two parts as I booked through Jamie of No Troubles, Just Bubbles for my stay on Genesis 1 North Tour I can not praise Jamie highly enough. Every email was answered quickly and thoroughly and every effort was made to ensure the trip was just right for me. It was perfect. I will definitely be contacting No troubles, Just bubbles for my next trip. Seamless from start to end and even a text after the trip to see how it went. Thank you. Genesis 1 North Tour was AMAZING! It takes a lot to blow me away as I have over 700dives and have been on the circuit for a while. However the crew were all lovely and split a full boat into three groups of four to ensure we all got a bespoke service underwater. The food was amazing. There was plenty of space for UW camera gear and chargers etc. It was exactly what I wanted. Stefan, Corinne and Tom were amazing and the dives were top notch too. Richelieu rock is still in excellent health and the three dives we did there were all very different despite being on the same place. Thank you all so much and I hope to see you again. ...read more

Boat rating: 10/10
My parents and I joined Genesis for the Surin national park trip. Our favourite part was Richelieu Rock, arguably my favourite dive site in Thailand! We were lucky to dive it three times. Beautiful, healthy, soft and colourful coral on the top, and interesting and unique landscape and creatures on the bottom portion. The liveaboard had AMAZING FOOD and we ate like kings for three days. Thank you to the Genesis staff for ta king good care of us and most importantly thank you to JAMIE for answering my millions of questions and helping us every step of the way. ...read more
