MV Gentle Giant is a 27m long Similans liveaboard that dives more than just the Similans. These unique 5 night cruises take in more of the best dive sites in the Andaman Sea than other boats: Similans, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai, Richelieu Rock, Koh Haa, Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Phi Phi, King Cruiser Wreck and Shark Point.

There will be up to a maximum of 20 divers on board, staying in a range of cabins all of which are ensuite, and have seaview windows.

The main social area where guests hang out is the air-conditioned saloon where you can relax in comfort and watch movies on the 55” flat screen TV, listen to music, or browse the library of general and diving related reading materials. Outdoor social spots include the spacious partially covered sundeck which has sun mats and sun loungers for your comfort. There is also a large shaded dining area with soft bench seating where you can hang out and enjoy the fresh sea breezes.

The spacious dive deck features individual diver stations, storage spaces for your smaller pieces of equipment and rinse tanks. Additional diving facilities include the availability of nitrox and 15 litre tanks so you can maximise your underwater time on this complete Andaman Sea cruise.
