The charming dive boat offers a very relaxed atmosphere. With only max. 15 divers plus instructors/guides, you experience a great mood among passionate divers.
The spacious dive deck ensures every diver enough space to comfortably set up the diving equipment. The dive time is unlimited, meaning we stay in the water until we reach 50 bar (in Phuket dives are usually limited to 50 minutes). The boat always picks up the divers where they surface. This allows us to do varied dives and to enjoy drift dives. In addition the M/V Matchanu tows a tender boat for additional safety and beach visits.
