Possibly the best liveaboard diving yacht in Thailand, The Phinisi offers up to 18 lucky guests a choice of wonderful cruises at all of the best dive sites in The Andaman Sea. The atmosphere, service, food, management and every detail makes its dive cruises an unforgettable experience.

The Phinisi has seven guest cabins, including twins, doubles, and shared. Each cabin has independently-controlled air conditioning & a private bathroom with hot & cold freshwater showers and proper western toilets. Towels & bedding is changed daily. There are shelves, cupboards and a mini safe in each cabin, too. Two of the cabins have four single beds, and are therefore ideal for friends, families or solo divers. For more privacy, there are also twin-bed cabins that have two single beds. Finally, The Phinisi has double bed cabins for couples.

There are several very comfortable communal areas on The Phinisi. These include air-conditioned comfort and outdoor areas which are shaded or exposed. Starting with the large air-conditioned lounge saloon, this is a wonderful place to relax with a drink or to watch a movie or diving media on the large flat-screen TV. There are comfortable sofas & stools and tasteful décor. It seems a shame to come on a diving holiday in tropical Thailand and then sit indoors, but sometimes the temptation is just too much.

dive deck and diving equipment The PhinisiOut on deck, there is a beautiful outdoor dining area that is covered but gives you panoramic views. Plus there are semi-covered areas for chilling out, and a large sundeck for those who want to top up a tan or gaze at the stars. Such is the luxury on board The Phinisi, that you could be forgiven for not wanting to go diving. However, the dive sites, experienced team, and the boat’s facilities ensure that you will enjoy the diving as much as being on board. Tender dinghies make the start and end of each dive easy, and the Divemaster guides know the area very well. Nitrox is available, and so are PADI diving courses. Motorized tender dinghies are used so that the start and end of every dive is safe & simple.

The Phinisi offers three different itineraries in Thailand. For 2018-2019, there are 4 Day / 4 Night trips to the best diving locations between Phuket and the mainland. These are commonly known as Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa, Racha, Phi Phi, King Cruiser & Shark Point. In addition, the boat offers 6-night cruises to The Similans, Richelieu Rock, Koh Bon & Koh Tachai. Starting in November 2019, The Phinisi will combine these two trips to offer the very best diving cruises in Thailand that are ten nights in length and ensure that you get to visit every dive site!

The Phinisi Itinerary

Booking / Enquiry

There are a few different itineraries on The Phinisi. Some trips are at ‘The Southern Islands’ which are Koh Haa, Hin Daeng & Koh Phi Phi. Most trips are to ‘The Northern Islands’ which are Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock. The 10-night trips in Thailand combine north and south. These combined trips start in the south if the departs from Chalong, or start in the Similans if the boat departs from Tab Lamu.

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.
