MV Scuba Adventure

Thailand Liveaboard Diving MV Scuba Adventure

MV Scuba Adventure is an original vessel, comfortable and spacious enough for you to feel at home fining your own space when you need to.

MV Scuba Adventure liveaboard has 5 twin cabins and 2 double cabins, all air conditioned, thereby accommodating up to 12 people.

The covered deck offers a pleasant and refreshing space away from your diving expeditions, where you can relax and enjoy your drinks with your fellow divers, while exchanging experiences of your day’s extraordinary dives.

The dive platform, built with your safety and comfort in mind is spacious and well organised.

The dive crew on board the Scuba Adventure are experienced and have a curiosity that

perhaps even exceeds your own, despite the fact that they have been diving in these waters for years. John, from England, always manages to find something new on each dive and knowing the dive sites very well he will always show you the sights around so you don’t miss anything during your dive. Isabelle, from Belgium, a fluent English, Dutch and French speaker is our number one little-creature spotter so if it’s nudibranches you want to find, along with the manta rays and sharks of course, she is the person to show you. Isabelle and John work very well together and create an atmosphere on board that will give you a sense of safety, good humour and fun.

Dive with Island Cruises into your underwater dreams from our fully equipped liveaboard and experience the wonders of the colourful creatures and rich underwater vegetation of the Andaman Sea.
