MV Miss Moon dive boat review

MV Miss Moon is one of several liveaboard vessels based in the northern Thai city of Ranong. This Similan liveaboard is owned and operated by Andaman International Diving Centre – a locally run diving operation with greater than 15 years experience in the local waters. A wooden hulled Diving vessel in the more traditional Thai liveaboard style, the MV Miss Moon offers small groups and variety of itineraries and voyages in the waters of both Thailand and Myanmar (Burma).

You can check the availability and prices for this Boat here.

Liveaboard Layout

Weighing at 35 tonnes, 18m long and 4m wide, the Miss Moon boat is one of the smaller safari vessels on offer. Capable of 12knots, the Captain will normally cruise at 7-8 knots as your wend your way around the beautiful dive sites of Thailand and Myanmar (Burma).

It’s direct competition would be other smaller and more inexpensive vessels such as the MV Giamani or MV Thai Sea.

With berths for only 10 divers and/or guests, this is a cosy and friendly environment in which to spend your diving holiday. The Miss Moon has an experienced and friendly staff who do their upmost to meet your needs.

Cabins

The Miss Moon liveaboard has 3 ‘Standard’ cabins. Simply furnished with twin bunk beds and fans. There is a further ‘Standard’ cabin with a double bed for couples. Then, for an additional fee the ‘Master Cabin’ is available with double bed, air-conditioning, fans, flatscreen TV and wardrobe/closet. Expect to pay 5-10% more the ‘Master Cabin’ facilities.

Outside on the main/upper deck there is a dining and relaxing area where there is TV, sound system and hot and cold drinks, fresh fruit and snacks available. This is an area where you will likely spend a lot of your time, unwinding and comparing notes with your fellow Scuba divers on what you’ve seen beneath the surface!

Miss Moon Dining Area

Moving forwards towards the bow of the vessel there is a ‘garden sundeck’ with grass where you can top up your tan or take a little afternoon siesta.

Elsewhere on the MV Miss Moon diving boat you’ll find 2 marine toilets and 3 showers.

Scuba Diving onboard MV Miss Moon

Down on the dive deck level is where you find 14x12litre tanks and 3x15litre tanks being filled by twin Bauer compressors. DIN and yoke fittings are available but, if unsure, it may be wise to bring an adaptor for your personal DIN regulators.

As with most diving in the Similan Islands and Burma, the diving is ‘drift’ style – with your guide launching an SMB at the end of the dive during your safety stops prompting a pick up by the Captain. However, should individual pick-ups be required – or visiting one of the islands – a dinghy with 25hp outboard is on stand-by for safety.

Food onboard is a mixture of local and western flavours. You are sure not to lose any weight!

Itineraries

One of the impressive things about this particular vessel is the choice of different voyages available. So, whether you have a hankering for visiting the northern waters of Myanmar or, alternatively, have your fingers crossed that you’re one of the lucky ones to see a Whale Shark around Richelieu Rock – there is something on offer.

Prices range from a barely believable THB19,000 for the simplest and cheapest 4 day trip to THB102,500 for a master cabin on one of the longer itineraries.
