The crew of the MV Camic is well trained, experienced and operate at the highest professional standard. With your comfort and safety as their priority, they are willing to go that extra mile to ensure you have a smile on your face. The dive instructors are multilingual, and the food is one of the tastiest on any boat in the Similans.
As regards safety, the boat is equipped with the required safety features such as extensive first aid kits, emergency oxygen, fire extinguishers as well as a life raft.
Known for its visits to the Richelieu Rock, the MV Camic runs a flexible schedule and offers snorkel excursions, daily dives & flexible liveaboard diving safaris to the Andaman Sea.
In addition to great-value trips, including the free transfers and great food, MV Camic is among the least expensive liveaboard boats that offer a PADI course, such as Advanced Open Water, or becoming certified for beginners.
The MV Camic offers either 4 or 5-night itineraries to Koh Bon, Koh Tachai & Richelieu Rock in the Similan & Surin Islands. Your trip starts with a pick up from your Khao Lak hotel around 17-30 on the day of departure, returning approximately the same time on your return date.

Lunch buffet follows at 13:45 after which you relax and go for the next dive which lasts for approximately 60 minutes. The last dive for the day, the night dive, takes place at 19:30 and lasts for about 40 mins. The rest 3 days follow almost the same activities at different dive sites until the end of the trip on the 4th day.
