MV Colona VI

Thailand Liveaboard Diving MV Colona VI Built in 2000 and locally constructed, MV Colona VI provides you with all the comforts you will need for your live aboard diving trip. She has been sailing smoothly for 8 seasons and is one of our most popular boats, with many customers returning to sail with her time and time again.

MV Colona is a wooden hull live aboard vessel. Neat and tidy, there is plenty of space for diving safely in the dive deck, where 14 divers and 2 guides are easily and comfortably accommodated. The diving deck is in fact organised to provide individual tank holders for each diver with ample space for storing your other equipment. All the tanks are filled on the spot by experienced and certified crew. Nitrox is also available on this vessel and there are tables beside the tank storage area for storing your computers, including a fresh water tank, for rinsing computers and cameras in particular.

She has 6 twin cabins and 1 double cabin all fitted with air condition, electric sockets (no need for pin adapters as these are international, working at 220 a.c.) fridge, cupboard space for your personal items and a large panoramic window to gaze at the stars at night and the turquoise waters in the morning just as you open your eyes to a new day.

Meals in MV Colona VI include both Thai and European cuisine, with a variety of delicacies to please all pallets. Colona VI runs a buffet, which effectively means that you can eat to your stomach’s content.

Tired from a hard day’s diving you can relax in the upper deck with free coffee, tea and water or you can order a beer, wine or soft drinks at a small charge. Cushions all around offer a sense of home in Colona VI, while you watch a DVD or listen to your favourite CD tunes. There is also an on-board library should you feel inclined to expand your horizons in-between dives.

MV Scuba Cat

Liveaboard Diving Thailand MV Scuba Cat BoatNewly refurbished in 2008, the MV Scuba Cat operates in the Similan waters and is the largest diving liveaboard catamaran in the country. Those divers suffering from sea sickness will find this vessel most comfortable and stable owing to its construction and location.

MV Scuba Cat Liveaboard is a unique diving platform in that it is moored in the calm waters of the Similan Islands and only travels from dive site to dive site within the National Marine Park. Our MV Scuba Sport speed boat transfers divers to the MV Scuba Cat almost daily, depending on the season. Once transfered onto the vessel you have a choice of staying as many days as you like, doing up to 5 dives a day. You also have the opportunity to rent an ocean kayak or we can take you to the beautiful surrounding beaches where you can sunbathe to your heart’s content or, if you are looking for a different kind of sport alongside diving, you can take part in our famous sunset volleyball matches on the beach. Life on board this vessel is easy going. There is also ample space to relax on top of its 80 square meter sun deck, where you can chat about all of your day’s adventures. The MV Scuba Cat live aboard is a fine place to make new diving friends exploring the spectacular underwater world of the Similans.

She boasts a low level dive platform with ample space, making equipment preparation and access to the water very easy for everyone on board.

If you are a beginner diver, and unsure of your diving skills, this should be the ideal boat for you to start your liveaboard career, since you will be diving in the safety of the protected waters of the Similan National Marine Park, with plenty of shallower water dives sites around. MV Scuba Cat will take you to dive sites such as Honeymoon Bay, Boulder City, Hideaway Reef, Deep Six, Breakfast Bend and Elephant Head Rock among others.

MV Scuba Cat accommodates up to 20 divers in its twin share cabins. All cabins are spacious and have upper and lower berths, reading lights, fans, lockable boxes and a view of the ocean through your window, first thing in the morning when you wake up.

The crew on board are always friendly and willing to answer any questions, help you with anything you need and teach you about the underwater world, always with your safety and that of the environment in mind.

In the low season MV Scuba Cat liveaboard journeys to the protection of Racha Yai and Racha Noi islands, where transfers to the vessel take place daily. Racha Yai is the best place to learn scuba diving, since the underwater currents are mild. The dives sites in this area are rich with aquatic life and hard corals reefs. Racha Noi on the other hand, fit for more experienced divers due to the strong currents, offers dive sites full of soft corals, home to larger fish and manta rays.

Book with Island Cruises all year round, for a journey into the stunning underwater world of the Similans with the choice of as many diving days as you wish and the added bonus of maintaining your independence by not having to follow a particular Cruise schedule as with all other vessels.
