MV Scuba Explorer dive boat review

The MV Scuba Explorer can carry a maximum of 24 divers, but the boat is so spacious and airy that even when it’s full, you will never feel cramped. All 10 cabins are air conditioned and have their own en-suite facilities. There’s also some music that you have the option of turning off, in case you prefer without!

Qualified divers can avail the enriched air Nitrox which is needed for them to reach and survive the deeper and more challenging dive sites in Thailand. Aside from the massive dive deck, guests can also expect to relax in an air-conditioned saloon and dining room all in one! Inside, you can find all the amenities that you may need, from the state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment to an impressive collection of movies, not forgetting the general, fish ID and diving books, and fun games. Divers can also use the computer, printer and CD burner! Talk about having your entertainment needs satisfied!

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