Like her sister boat The Junk, the Phinisi is a beautiful, traditionally built wooden vessel.
She caters to a maximum of 18 guests in a choice of quad, twin and double cabins, all featuring aircon, ensuite bathrooms and ample space.
For social areas, there’s an indoor saloon with a 42″ flat-screen TV as well as books, movies and games, a sundeck with loungers and beanbags and an al fresco dining space.
All meals (included in price) are served buffet style with free soft drinks. For a small extra charge there’s also a nice selection of beers and wines on offer.
There’s 3 Thailand trips on offer:
Guests can look forward to up to 4 dives a day, with a norm of 3 day dives and 1 night dive. This is excellent value for money, as quite often liveaboards only offer 3 dives a day.
In between dives, there’s various land excursions such as beach visits.
Where possible, the captain is happy for guests to suggest favourite dive sites. For extra, you can pay for nitrox or to complete scuba courses.
No other liveaboard let’s you discover Thailand diving as wholesomely as The Phinisi and for this reason she’s one of our favourite options.
