Whale (Phuket) has undergone a complete renovation for 2018, and is now like a brand-new boat. Under its new ownership, the boat is running trips to the best dive sites in Thailand throughout most of the year. Up to twelve lucky guests can enjoy the comfort of six air-conditioned twin cabins.

At 20 metres long and 5 metres wide, Whale (Phuket) is an ideal size for safe & comfortable diving safaris for its limited number of lucky guests. There’s an air-conditioned lounge saloon with a large tv and several areas out on deck to relax alone, in couples or with friends. All cabins have air-conditioning, storage, a window & mirror. The guests share three bathrooms at the rear of the boat. There’s a motorized dinghy to retrieve surfacing divers and to take you to the beaches. A full set of safety & navigation equipment is also on board. The dive platform at the rear of Whale (Phuket) is well planned & large enough to enable everyone to gear up and step into the crystal-clear warm waters of the Andaman Sea.

Whale (Phuket) has two different itineraries during the high season. One goes to Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock, and the other visits Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa, Phi Phi & Koh Lipe. Unlike most other liveaboard itineraries at this price, Whale (Phuket) gives you an extra night on board. Instead of finishing in the afternoon of the fourth & final day, you stay on board for an extra dive, dinner & one more night in your comfortable cabin. Then you disembark the following morning. Most four-day liveaboard trips in Thailand are four nights and 14 dives, but on Whale (Phuket) you get four days, five nights and 15 dives!

The delicious food is prepared by expert cooks who know that diving is hungry work. Meals are served buffet style throughout the cruise, including dinner on the first evening and breakfast on the final morning. Vegan, vegetarian and other dietary requests can be catered for, but please let us know in advance.

dive platform and rear of boatDuring the Similan low season, trips are three diving days & four nights, and they sail to Phi Phi and around Phuket’s best dive spots. Although Phuket dive sites get lots of divers during the day, it’s very different on a liveaboard diving trip. Not only can the day dives be timed to miss the day trips’, you get to dive very early in the morning and at night, when there’s almost nobody else there.

Finally, it's important to note that Whale (Phuket) trips are guaranteed! While most other liveaboards require 40% or more of the boat to be full before they can confirm departure, Whale (Phuket) will sail with just one or two guests on board. This is very useful if you want to book early for the discount and be sure that your trip will happen, even if no one else joins.
