No.
You can join any trip as a non-diver, but if you want to scuba dive, then you have to have a minimum of an Open Water Diver license and have been diving in the last 12 months. If you have not been diving in the last 12 months, we advise you do a refresher day trip in Phuket or at home prior to the trip’s departure.

We expect no issues but in the unlikely event of injury, it only makes sense to be prepared. Check your current travel insurance covers you for scuba diving activities. Be sure to contact them directly to make sure. If they do not then we recommend DAN Scuba Diving Insurance.

Yes, Nitrox % is available at an additional 300 Thailand Baht per cylinder. Please order this prior to your departure date as the cylinders have to be transported from the mainland to the liveaboard prior to your arrival.

Yes.
We have DIN adaptors onboard for you to use as we use Yoke valves.

After multiple days/dives, it is recommended that you do not fly for 24 hours after the last dive of your trip.

One of the best parts of vacation is not having to worry about meals, right? We’ve got that covered, too, with meals prepared right on the boat! The food is fresh, locally sourced whenever possible, and served up at perfect temperatures. This isn’t boring and bland cafeteria food – this is deeply nourishing, satisfying, and flat-out delicious; perfect to fuel you for the day! 

Between meals, help yourself to the freshest farm-to-table fruit you can find as well as other snacks and beverages. If you have food sensitivities or specific preferences, please let us know in advance – we’d really love to accommodate your needs whenever we can. If we can’t we’re happy to store food that you bring for yourself right in the boat’s kitchen area.
