MV Explorer is a great boat that has recently (2023) had a full refit, including new cabins. At 26 metres long, it's the ideal length to easily accomodate up to 16 lucky guests without wasting fuel and is easy to manoeuvre. There's a wide choice of itineraries from 3 days to nearly 2 weeks on board. And it's now owned and run by the longest-running Similan liveaboard operator, with 30 years experience.

After its total refurbishment during the low season, there are now just 8 guest cabins, most of which have a private en suite bathroom. On the lower deck the boat has six guest cabins which have a large double bed and a single bunk, but only accommodate two people. Therefore, couples can sleep together, but friends or strangers can also share the cabins. Each has a sea-view window and a private en suite bathroom. Behind these guest cabins you will find three communal bathrooms and the large dive deck. The upper deck of MV Explorer has two double bed cabins which have a window, but these cabins do not have private bathrooms, hence the lower price. At the rear of the upper deck is a large shaded outdoor area where detailed dive briefings are held and the delicious food is served. Here you can socialise with other guests, sit and read a book, or enjoy some drinks after the final dive of the day. And finally, there's a large sundeck to top up your tan or enjoy the stars, sunrise or sunset with a sea breeze.

Throughout each cruise guests are served three or more delicious meals each day, with fruits, cookies, snacks and almost all non-alcoholic drinks available for free 24 hours a day. The chef's team are experienced in creating magic from a small kitchen far out at sea, and those who are vegetarian or have special dietary needs will not go hungry either.

The dive crew are multilingual, and experienced PADI professionals. Each group of divers is limited to four guests with similar experience, and breathing the same gas. Nitrox is available for certified divers, and those who are not Nitrox certified can choose to take the course on board if they want to.

Très belle expérience. Première croisière avec mon fils, l’équipage comme les encadrants sont très sympa et disponibles. L’organisation des plongées est réglée parfaitement. Les cuisinières sont au top. Seul hic : nous sommes tombés en more

Great diving with excellent divemasters/guides. Accommodation was a bit cramped, but a boat is a boat. Food was very good. The only negative is that the beds were very hard. Not enough padding for old bones. I would rate it 9/10 except for the b more
