Description and details
Diving on the Giamani liveaboard in Thailand
Giamani Liveaboard is the ideal experience for lovers of diving, relaxation, incredible beaches and cultural and culinary discoveries with a temperature between 25 ° C and 35 ° C throughout the year.
Nowadays, it’s scarce to see and observe beauty. With all the pollution, rush and corruption, beauty has become an endangered currency. Thankfully, Thailand didn’t cease to provide the most captivating and dive oriented areas, along the blue Andaman Sea: Aboard Giamani we take you along a trip to discover the Similan Islands, Richelieu Rock, Phi Phi islands, as well as Hin Daeng and Hin Muang for 2 up to 6 days.
It’s not a strike of hazard that leads us to choose the Andaman Sea but our knowledge of all its treasures. The seabed is subdued with beauty: manta rays, sea turtles, barracudas evolve in multicolored coral reefs. The crystal clear waters and the Similan Islands caves render it a perfect spot for diving. On land, the fauna and flora are of an infinite variety and dazzle the traveler: more than 800 endemic species of birds, elephants, monkeys, coconut trees as far as the eye can see, rubber trees, mangroves, etc.
Features of the vessel
Giamani is not like any other boat, it is custom made to provide all guests with the ultimate services whether they are diving related or not. This 24m long vessel has only 5 en-suite cabins: 1 Master cabin and 4 deluxe cabins and each one is well prepared, air-conditioned and contains a mini-fridge and an individual shower. We specifically limited the access to a maximum of 10 divers to make sure that each and everyone receives an excellent experience and has a delightful trip.
Fun activities in-between dives and delicious food
This yacht is not extremely spacious but it’s built to be warm and cheerful. The inside saloon is air-conditioned, includes a TV and a vast marine library for all the curious minds. The open-air saloon area is ideal for dining where you can gaze at all the breathtaking scenery while enjoying the fine cuisine of our chefs. They were selected from the best and have only one goal; to prepare only delicious and mouthwatering food in each meal. We are not restricted to western food, but also to vegetarian, vegan or local Thai food. The latter is a must if you want to savor the exotic Thai cuisine.
Welcoming, warm and professional team
