MV Oktavia

The MV Oktavia was originally built in 2003. The liveaboard vessel was then fully renovated in 2007 to provide even more comfort and space for scuba divers. The M/V Oktavia is 30m long and 6,5m wide. The size and weight of this great liveaboard boat makes it very steady in the sea even in rough waters. An extra large dive deck allows for much space to gear up and to comfortably enter the water. Oktavia is a quit boat with a wooden hull that effectively reduces the engine noise. Of course, safety is top priority and M/V Oktavia fulfills all international safety standards.

MV Oktavia offers two very large and comfortable master en-suite cabins and 13 “blue ocean cabins”, large cabins with ample space which are all equipped with air conditioning, fan, reading lights and large panorama windows. Usually there are only two guests per cabin, unless a family chooses one of the triple bed family cabins. This live aboard boat is very attractive for families with children and groups. M/V Oktavia is one of the biggest boats cruising the Similan and Surin Islands which means more leisure space and no cramped areas with a maximum of 20 diving or non diving guests on board it allows less than half of what the boat originally was built for. The staff of the M/V Oktavia welcomes babies and children of any age and will take good care for them while the parents can fully enjoy diving in the Similan Islands. The Swedish owners are always on the boat, ensuring that the ship is well maintained and guaranteeing a high service level

The huge sun deck of the Oktavia lets you enjoy stunning views over the Similan and Surin Islands and spectacular sunsets in the Andaman Sea. The “Party Deck” offers comfortable sitting space with lots of large and comfortable armchairs and sofas for reading books, sharing diving adventure stories and eating. Speaking of which; excellent food is served from breakfast to lunch and dinner. The crew of the M/V Oktavia guarantees small dive groups with max 4 divers per guide – and divers are split according to experience and comfort level. The max. dive time is 1 hour (everywhere else 50 minutes). Scheduled are 4 fantastic dives per day including the choice between sunset- or night dive (only 3 dives on day 5)
