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-Boat The 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.
