For anyone who is more focussed on packing in the best diving in Thailand than on the inside of their cabin, Marco Polo is the absolute best choice.
The Sea Bees Liveaboard Marco Polo departs from Phuket’s Chalong Pier, and transfers from the Phuket area are included in the package price.
The Marco Polo has recently had a makeover, and all 6 cabins now have ensuite and air conditioning. All cabins have doors that open directly on to the outer deck to give the full benefits of the sea breeze. Maximum capacity 12 passengers.
The dive deck itself is very spacious and tanks are filled in situ. Two ladders guarantee easy access in and out of the water. Above the dive deck is the Salon and open air ‘party’ deck – a large covered area with plenty of seating where most of the meals are served al fresco. Inside the Salon, the meals are laid out buffet style and there is a TV and music station.
An overview of the Similan and Surin Islands can be found here. We also have some descriptions of the individual dive sites: Koh Bon, Ko Tachai, HinPusa (also known as Elephant Head Rock) and Richelieu Rock.
