Comments The M/V Giamani is the only liveaboard in Thailand catering for small groups of only 10 divers in 5 comfortable en-suite air con cabins. Apart from the personal service and small friendly atmosphere there are other practical reasons that make this an excellent liveaboard choice. A relatively small ship of this size is able to moor up on top of the dive sites and dive entry and exit is directly from the dive deck with no need to transfer in and out of skiffs.

The owners of Giamani spare no time and effort in making sure their guests are comfortable, well fed and professionally looked after throughout the trip

The diving was very enjoyable even for the very experienced members of the group. Visibility between 10 and 20 m on every dive with clear blue skies and calm seas. A good variety of marine life and soft and hard corals
