  • “Hin Daeng, Hin Muang, Koh Haa, Phi Phi and Phuket”: Over just 2 nights, discover Thailand’s south Andaman Sea with 7 a total of dives. This is a great option for those tight on time or who’re beginner divers.

Leading out from the indoor saloon, there’s a shaded relaxation and dining area where you can unwind and sip an icy beer or a glass of wine after the days diving. 

Right at the top of the Giamani is the sundeck with mattes – it’s the very best place from which to catch the view, especially around sunset time. 

The dive deck has plenty of space as well as a large camera table and rinse tank to cater for underwater photographers. 

All meals are served buffet style and consist of Thai and international cuisine. Vegan and vegetarian options are available on request.

Scuba fanatic, travel ecstatic and loveable rogue. A rootless divemaster and perpetual adrenaline-junky, Alex holds the esteemed rank of Grand Admiral of the Diving Squad; a title he most nobly awarded to himself. A scuba-junky since 2014, he's dived much of the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Red Sea, Ireland, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Panama. It's hard to say where he'll pop up next for he never settles; forever a leaf on the wind... or perhaps a lone bubble blasted along on the current.
