MV Sea of Fantasy I dive boat review
The MV Sea of Fantasy I has a total of 8 cabins available, with 6 of these with shared bathrooms. This beauty compensates for the lack of a saloon on board by providing guests with plenty of space to move around, relax and unwind. The spacious dive deck puts a smile on every diver’s face- easy access in and out of the water! Guests can also relax and have a chat with their fellow diving buddies on the sundeck or shaded area while lounging on the comfortable seating offered.

“We went on the Sea of Fantasy years ago (2010) and it was totally random. I only decided to write a review now because I am doing a liveaboard to Raja Ampat and the reviews were such a great help to make decision. So, when I stumbled on the MV Sea of Fantasy I was actually searching for a particular dive shop, I wasn’t finding it and then I found Eden divers which operates MV Sea of Fantasy, based in Patong, Phuket. We, girlfriend and I, took a tour and were very impressed so we decided to take a trip on the vessel to the Similan Islands. The boat is spacious with max. of 15 divers and there was still plenty of room. We stayed in en-suite cabin which was roomy enough for two people to be comfortable. Thai crews on the boat were very friendly and helpful, also reasonable number of dive masters and instructors to look after everyone. Captain Werut (Not sure how to spell) was amazing and obviously very experienced in term of cruising and diving the Andaman sea. He advised us for a few tips about diving in the area because we are two new divers. We are planning to go liveaboard again now but in Raja Ampat. We sure would come back on the Sea of Fantasy and strongly advise anyone who wishes to embark for a diving cruise to do so!”

“My husband and I had a wonderful time diving in the Similan Islands. I just wanted to say that the boat and diving crews onboard the Sea of Fantasy were totally great, professional, helpful and kept us safe at all time. It has been a highly enjoyable experience and we are very thankful to the crew for it. The SImilans Islands are, indeed, beautiful and the marine life is full or surprise and you cannot get tired of exploring around. Definitely recommending!”
