The Thailand Aggressor, a 35m motor yacht with a steel hull, brings a touch of class to the Thailand diving scene, bringing its trademark features of comfort and safety to the Andaman Sea since 2013. Operating a northern route to Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock, and a southen route to Hin Daeng and Koh Tarutao, the Thailand Aggressor liveaboard sleeps up to 16 guests in twin or double ensuite staterooms which come complete with TVs and a hard drive of entertainment.

As you might expect of a boat from this reputable fleet, there is a cosily-furnished saloon and separate dining room on the main deck where you can relax in air-conditioned comfort. Entertainment facilities include flastcreen TV, DVD and music system plus library of books and magazines. Internet is available via the satellite system at extra cost. On the sun deck you can soak up the rays, chill in the shade or cool off in the tub. Enjoy a glass of wine or a local beer as these are free of charge on this trip!

Photographers will appreciate facilities like the computer, photo and video editing facility, multiple charging sites throughout the boat, as well as the dive deck's camera rinse tank and camera table. All dives are made from skiffs capable of carrying 9 scuba divers. The emphasis on safety on this liveaboard leaves many other local options in the shade, complying with international SOLAS standards and featuring multiple radios, radar and signalling devices.
