Dolphin Queen Similans & Myanmar Liveaboard

Although considered an economy Similans liveaboard, Dolphin Queen is surprisingly large and spacious. The main deck on Dolphin Queen has two double bed cabins, one twin share bunk bed cabin, and three four-person share cabins, with each bed fitted with a personal curtain for a little privacy. The Dolphin Queen liveaboard has a further two double bed cabins on her upper deck. All cabins use shared bathrooms, all have air-conditioning, and all have 220v electrical sockets, so guests can charge their gadgets. The covered outside dining area is large enough to accommodate all guests even when trips are full. Also, there is a sun deck where guests can relax in between dives.

Itineraries offered on Dolphin Queen are mostly four-night cruises to the Similan Island, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai which include fourteen dives, plus several six-night trips to Myanmar, which include eighteen great dives around the Mergui Archipelago and Black Rock. Actually, only a couple of boats including Dolphin Queen venture into Burmese waters, so dive sites never feel busy. In fact, it’s almost certain that when divers from Dolphin Queen enter the water for dives in Burma, they’ll always have the entire dive site to themselves.

In between dives, there is a TV and DVD player, as well as a sound system, where guests can watch a movie or two, or listen to some music. There is also a library of marine books to help divers identify critters from their dives.
