The MV Oktavia is a large wooden liveaboard heading to the Similans; it is a comfortable and spacious vessel in the budget category. The 30 metre long boat is well looked after by a Swedish team who send it to the boat yard every season for renovation, this means that it is consistently in excellent condition. One of the owners is frequently on the boat too, meaning that trips always run smoothly. It can take up to 21 divers in a choice of double, twin or master cabins. The master cabins are very large with ensuite facilities, while all other cabins are also of a substantial size and share 4 clean and adequate shower room facilities. All cabins are air-conditioned.
The common areas are also very large, with a shaded out door dining area where Thai, Western and International food is served at meal times. The sun deck on the upper deck has shaded space, perfect for relaxing on after and before diving. In keeping with the spacious theme, there is an extended dive deck towards the back of the MV Oktavia, it is well equipped for efficient kitting up and storing equipment.
The MV Oktavia has nitrox for those that wish to use it. It is required that all passengers on this liveaboard are Advanced divers. If Open Water divers would like to join they will need to complete the Adventure Deep Dive.
