Introduction to the Deep Andaman Queen Liveaboard
Welcome to the pride of the Andaman sea! The MV Deep Andaman Queen, new refurbished in the
year of 2012, is a 28.5-meters long and 7-meters wide, twin-engine steel hull motor boat, with the
highest safety standards on board. She will be operating along Thailand's western coast and offering
incredible diving safaris to locations that include Similan , Surin national marine parks and Richelieu
Rock along with exclusive safaris to the little explored Mergui archipelago in Burma. Since November
until the end of April 2012. From May until August, she is ready for charter rent in the area of
Andaman southern sea, offering the chance to enjoy the incredible diving on offer in areas such as
Koh Haa and Phi Phi along with the world class diving at Hin Daeng and Hin Muang and the coral
gardens of Tarutao National Marine Park.
All cabins onboard MV Deep Andaman Queen have air conditioning, en-suite bathroom and toilet,
warm water shower, We have a variety of cabins configuration to suit our guests varied needs, from
standard quad, triple and twin share cabins on the lower deck, Deluxe Double bed and Deluxe Twin
bed cabins on the main deck. Not forgetting the pride of the vessel, our Master cabin, which boasts
the best panoramic view any liveaboard master cabin can offer. MV Deep Andaman Queen also
offers our guests one of the largest and most comfortable dive platforms in South East Asia; designed
for divers.
MV Deep Andaman Queen is a PADI Dive Center that offers the Enriched Air (Nitrox) Diver course,
Advanced Open Water course and many specialties. You can feel confident that our experienced dive
crew can take care of your every diving need, whether you are a seasoned pro or a brand new first
time diver!
MV Deep Andaman Queen also carries a Nitrox membrane system onboard; we can fill cylinders with
a mixture up to 32% Oxygen. Our Professional PADI Dive Instructors are certified gas blenders to
ensure your safety.
One of the pleasures of diving with MV Deep Andaman Queen is that you don’t have to worry about
long surface swims after a dive! We will ensure you are picked up safely and quickly by one of our
two dinghies or by our big boat. Once safely back on the boat, the crew will assist you with your dive
equipment and offer you a cool drink. Enjoy our delicious food after the dives and continue with the
relaxing schedule of the trips.
The Exterior
Deep Andaman Queen Liveaboard is a large vessel with plenty of space to move about and relax
between dives; whether you would like to sunbath, read a book, or watch some movies in the saloon,
we have what you are looking for.
The saloon onboard Deep Andaman Queen is very comfortable, with large panoramic windows, a
TV/DVD/music entertainment center, cushy couches, and a full selection of marine life books & diving
magazines. The main deck outside of the Saloon is a shaded seating area (dining area) where you can
enjoy watching some scenic views across the islands.
In front of the Captain’s cabin, there is a large bench perfect to sit and watch things pass by.
Sunbathers can enjoy the top desk, where there is a large 60 square meter half-shaded sun deck
equipped with sun beds, lounge chairs and soft sofas. The sun deck is very popular among our guests
as you can read your favorite novel or take a nap during the surface interval on our nice clean and
comfortable leathered sofas. This is also the best place to spot friendly dolphins cruising along with
our boat. In the evening, you can relax and chat about the day’s diving while enjoying an amazing
night sky. Taking in some of the best star-gazing in the world, many guests choose to sleep on the top
deck and wake up to a beautiful sunrise.
MV Deep Andaman Queen offers our guests one of the largest dive platforms in South East Asia -- it
is the pride and joy of our boat. It consists of a very wide and spacious kitting-up area on two levels, a
separate entry/exit platform, two exit ladders with two fresh water showers to rinse yourself or your
equipment after your dives. You will also find two large buckets with fresh water for rinsing cameras,
dive computers and torches.
MV Deep Andaman Queen has a convenient fill-in-place air station with two compressors. After each
dive, we refill your cylinder at your station without removing your gear so there is no unnecessary
moving around. You just put all your equipment together on the first day, and for the rest of the trip
you can relax and remember to Dive, Dive, Dive!
The Cabins

They have worked several seasons in the Similan and Surin National Marine Parks, Burma Bank,
Phuket southern sites, Hin Daeng, Hin Muang , Adang, Rawi, Lipe and Tarutao. When you’re diving
with our professional dive staff, they will show you all the amazing wonders the sea has to offer.
Your guides will also work to find the specific marine life you are interested in.
In some cases, if you are an experienced diver and just want to have a dive site briefing, then you
and your dive Buddy can go on your own. However, you must follow the diving rules and
instructions given by our Dive Staff to ensure your safety.
