Colona VI has a very good reputation as one of the most professionally run, friendly and relaxed Thailand liveaboard cruises. This is largely due to the dive staff who will do all they can to ensure that your trip a hassle free and fun experience. They are always on hand to answer your questions, whether you need to know the name of that unusual fish they showed you, you need tips on taking underwater photos, or you want to see an impersonation of Huggy Bear from Starsky and Hutch!.

There are options for 2, 4 and 6 day trips. We recommend the 6 day Andaman Sea safari which includes all the best dive sites in the area, such as the Similans, Richelieu Rock and Hin Daeng.

Freshen up anytime in your cabin's own private bathroom ... no need to worry about queuing first thing in the morning! The only double bed cabin is the Honeymoon cabin on the upper deck, but is always the first to be booked so be quick if you want that one!

Meals are served in the spacious shaded outdoor area which is designed for socialising. At the rear of the upper deck is a cushioned lounge area, perfect for reading a book or taking a nap between dives.

Colona VI has enriched air nitrox. If you've never dived with nitrox before, why not learn on board? Interested in learning to blend your own nitrox fills? The staff can teach you that too. Sign up now for an enthralling Thailand liveaboard dive experience and education. It's likely to be great fun too!
