MV Deep Andaman Queen Liveaboard
The MV Deep Andaman Queen (formally the Queen Scuba) is a 28m (92ft) vessel completed in 2003. She was built to be one of the more comfortable boats plying the Andaman Sea. One of the best things about this boat is the fact that she can take up to 21 guests–so those of you who like to travel in a fairly large group have other options now.
Price includes accommodation on board, all meals, most drinks, divemaster services, tanks, weights, and belts. Hotel transfers from Phuket and Khao Lak are also included in the price as long as it's part of our scheduled departure times as above. We will also pick you up at the Phuket airport for free on the day of departure as long as you are willing to wait there until the van arrives at about 17:00. Please plan your flight to arrive early as we cannot wait for late or delayed flights.
Price does not include personal diving equipment or national park fees. National park fees are 400 baht per person per entry (Similan and Surin), plus 200 baht per day. This is payable in Thai baht on the boat and is an additional charge imposed by the Thai Government as of November 15, 2001. A four-day trip is 1,600 THB, five-day trips are 1,800 THB. We never know what exactly the government will be doing from year to year, but this is the situation as it currently stands.

Note: We can take no responsibility for scheduling or itinerary changes due to changing weather, political situations, natural disasters or other events beyond our control. We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance for any kind of trip you do anywhere in the world. We also recommend that you have DAN or other diving accident insurance up to date and current in case of an unanticipated evacuation or other treatment that may not be covered by your regular insurance.
