The Andaman Tritan runs short 2-night liveaboard safaris out of Singapore to the Anambas Islands region of Western Indonesia. These trips will appeal to advanced divers and wreck lovers, searching for a new and affordable location to dive in Indonesia.
5 of the cabins have private bathrooms and there are a further 4 cabins which share bathroom facilities. All cabins are air-conditioned. With a capacity of only 16 divers, the compact Andaman Tritan never feels very crowded, whether you're in the shaded outdoor dining area, the air-conditioned saloon or on the sundeck.
Guests tend to relax and socialise in the dining area where the meals are served, or for sun lovers there is a large sundeck equipped with mattresses on the upper deck where you can work on your tan during surface intervals.
With nitrox on board, a boat crew of 7 and 3 dive masters, an extensive dive deck as well as full entertainment and safety facilities, you can see why many consider the M/V Andaman Tritan to provide all the services and attention you could wish for when diving in Indonesia.

Diving Environment: Lying in the South China Sea between Borneo and Peninsular Malaysia is the Riau Archipelago (which includes Acasta Reef and The Anambas islands). Far from shore the Riau Archipelago is not a destination that daytrip boats can reach so it remains the sole playground of liveaboards. Distance from shore means there is less human impact meaning greater visibility unaffected by river run off and low diver numbers. You will likely be the only boat there. Here you can find a combination of wreck (Igara Wreck, Acasta Wreck, 7 Skies) and reef diving (Anambas Islands). In this region you may dive with giant moray eels stingrays, cuttlefish and octopus. Turtles are commonly seen here, both hawksbill and green. There may, if you are very lucky, even be a passing whale shark. Visibility is 15-30m, water temperature is 27-29C.
Non-diver rate: 10% off the published price.
Single supplement (if you do not want to share accommodation): This is optional - single travellers may choose to share a cabin or pay a supplement of 70% of the published price.
