Renovated years ago, MV Peterpan is a 26 m long boat designed with simplicity and comfort in mind.

MV Peterpan dive boat review

MV Peterpan can accommodate up to 22 divers in her 11 roomy cabins. Entertainment facilities such as: TV; DVD player; a wide collection of movies and music, will definitely kill any boredom that may arise. The spacious air-conditioned saloon has battery charging stations – a big plus for divers!

Sun lovers can opt to stay on the sundeck and relax on the comfy mattresses on board. There’s also a shaded open-air area where guests can dine and enjoy some refreshing drinks.

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

Should divers want to stay longer and dive further under water, they can utilize the Nitrox blending available provided they are suitably EANx-certified. But wait! There’s more! Diving insurance is also included in the standard price of the trip. Amazing, huh?

You can also take some PADI and SSI diving courses while aboard Peterpan. Aside from the standard cabins, there is also a VIP honeymoon suite- perfect for newly-weds who are spending their honeymoon in the turquoise waters of Thailand. To complete this fantastic experience, mouth-watering cuisine is served buffet-style for everyone on board!

MV Peterpan on board facilities and services include:

  • 156m² dive deck and platform with fresh water showers
  • Camera rinse tanks
  • Movie library, general & fish ID books

Budget Range/Rate: Starts at around US$802 for 4 nights tour

Customer Reviews

“Amazing; all along the four fantastic days spent on board the Peterpan, it was amazing! The instructors, the captain, the food, the crew and the boat all of it was excellent.

We’ve booked a package and payed in advance. Everything was fine in processing the payment online. The staff was courteous and prompt in answering our questions by e-mail.

The Similan Seven Sea Is the actual diving crew that is on board the MV Peterpan. I thought it was really smart that they divided the divers in teams of 3 or 4 and selected depending on experience. Everybody was super friendly and so professional. Everything was well organized and they clearly put the focus on safety. We had Kwan for guide for most our outings and he’s totally great! They knew very well the diving sites, showing us very interesting stuff.

The vessel had more to offer than what I was expecting. The TV room was great! Everything was kept clean and the boat was spacious enough so you can have your own space sometimes. The sun deck was perfect to get a nice tan between the dives and chill out at night. Rooms are basic but comfy and spotless, you spend so little time in there anyways that the cleanliness and a certain level of comfort is the only thing that really matters I think. As for the meals, it was always good and mostly different and freshly cooked every day. We had 4 meals per day so no you are not there to starve! Fruits and snack were available all the time. When they say, eat dive and sleep and repeat, they weren’t joking! Will sure do it again !”

“I was travelling solo around Thailand earlier this winter and I had the greatest part of my trip on the Peterpan, diving around the Similan Islands. The boat crew was showing a positive attitude day after day, always smiling, being helpful and cheerful, it was really a pleasure to be around them. I think they enjoy their work and you can tell by the great service they provide! There was always plenty of food and it was tasty and various everyday! The dive guides were amazing as well. I am quite new as a diver and this trip sure has increased my confidence in my skills. It was a beautiful part of the of the world to discover and I sure recommend to dive with the MV Peterpan!”

2 liveaboard reviews for “MV Peterpan

  1. I’ve been on various vessels in the past years but my favourite would have to be the MV Peterpan during my trip to the Similan islands in Thailand. It is a great value for money with it wonderful staff and extremely helpful guides and boat boys.
    The food is also something to commend about. Meals are served 4 times a day in the main saloon on the main deck. It is a fusion of Asian and western cuisine and is served buffet style. I usually book the VIP room in the main deck with its en-suite bathroom, comfortable queen sized bed and cool air conditioner. The rooms also had big windows that over looked the beautiful waters outside. The diving is always great around Similan.
    My experience with the helpful boat boys and the professional guides is one of the best that I’ve had so far. They always seem to go above and beyond to make sure you’re having a great time and I really appreciated that, plus the free insurance coverage.

  2. Perhaps all the good reviews that I read are from people that either travelled in very low season or they were on a veryyyyy loose schedule and are veryyyyy laiiiiid back. This place is a fine mess. To book with them, to have transport organized, luggage stored, etc. All of this seems to be a very complicated procedure. They have put my friends luggage on another boat, when they were supposed to STORE it safely while she was on the liveaboard. Then, they asked me, and many other, 10 000 times to pay when we already did and told them many times. The transport was a mess, everything taking way longer cause they apparently don’t map anything prior to schedule a route to take people to their places. Anyways, I have never seen such disorganized dive club – liveaboard. In term of diving and the boat, the story gets better. Obviously, the Similan Islands. are a paradise for divers and I guess all the fuss was worth it considering the great diving. On the boat it wasn’t too messy I guess. Spacious and comfortable, we had a great 4 days at large. I’m sure there are better options out there but anyways if you book with them make sure you are on no tight schedule.
