Marco Polo

A week of adventures around Similan, Surin and Richelieu Rock.

If your going diving in Thailand, the sites visited on this trip are just the ticket. The sites around Similan are just mind blowing with huge gorgonian fans. You can also spot Whalesharks at Richelieu Rock.

The MV Marco Polo is a 23 metre boat offering 6 day and 6 night itineraries departing Phuket every Saturday from December through to May giving you the opportunity to explore some of the amazing sites along the way. She welcomes a maximum of 14 guests aboard each charter allowing for a more personal service from the friendly crew and dive masters leading you through the trip whilst helping with any questions or queries you may have.

The MV Marco Polo comfortably accommodates guests in 3 air conditioned double cabins, 4 fan cabins with bunk beds and 1 honeymoon cabin with a king size bed. All cabins come with storage, reading lights, electricity 24 hours a day and an individual interior. There are 2 shower cabins, 2 open air showers and 3 additional European style toilets with sinks. The food aboard is a variety of traditional European and local Thai cuisine cooked freshly everyday suiting the needs of most customers. Dietary requirements can be catered for when advance notice is given.

The dining area is furnished with tables and chairs providing ample space for divers and is located next to the salon which is the perfect place to view pictures and videos or listen to your favorite CD’s at the end of the day. The sundeck has shaded and un-shaded areas furnished with deck chairs and tables where you can gather with everyone to discuss your diving experiences. The spacious dive deck is covered allowing you to store and prepare your diving equipment in the shade. All dives are done from the mother boat and the 2 ladders guarantee easy access into and out of the water.
