Gentle Giant dive boat review

The 27 meters Gentle Giant liveaboard offers scuba diving cruises on the Andaman Sea, in Thailand. Thanks to the vessel’s longer itineraries of 5 nights, divers get to explore both the north and south Thaï Andaman Sea in one trip. Renovated in 2017, the MV Gentle Giant operates only a few times (6-7 times) between November and April each year.

The cabins

The Gentle Giant features 10 cabins, welcoming a maximum of 20 divers on-board each trip. The cabins all include air-conditioning and a private bathroom facility. Moreover, you’ll have a sea view window and safety deposit box in each of them as well. Most cabins are twin shared, but 2 are master cabins featuring double beds.

Gentle Giant’s on-board facilities

Indoor, you will find a large salon area with flat screen television and sound system. Most noteworthy is that the outside is definitely the favorite place to hang out! Indeed, that’s where you will find the covered dining area, but also the massive sundeck. As pictured below, the sundeck is not short on space and provides amazing views of Thailand‘s landscape.
