The KP Explorer, formerly known as the Andaman Tritan, is an economy Malaysian Peninsula liveaboard visiting the Tioman Island marine park and surrounding wrecks. It is a simple and comfortable 25m boat staffed by a team of dedicated local crew that are familiar with the local sites, serve delicious local food and provide warm service before and after every dive.
5 of the cabins have private ensuite bathrooms and there are a further 4 cabins which share bathroom facilities. All cabins are air-conditioned and the boat features an extensive dive deck as well as full entertainment and safety facilities. With a capacity of only 17 divers, there are many liveaboard boats larger than the KP Explorer, however it feels like a bigger boat since there is always plenty of space, whether you're in the shaded outdoor dining area, the air-conditioned saloon or on the sundeck.
Guests tend to spend their time in the huge dining area where the meals served are a mixture of South East Asian and international cuisine, or for the sun lovers there is a large sundeck on the upper deck where you can work on your tan between dives.
With nitrox on board and with 7 crew and 3 dive masters, you can see why many consider the KP Explorer to provide all the services and attention you would wish when diving around the best sites that Peninsular Malaysia has to offer. These short cruises use the Country Club Marina in Singapore, so they could be ideal for divers that are visiting Singapore or the Malaysian Peninsula.
