Similans - Richelieu
Liveaboard M/V Pawara is a 35 m long steel boat covering Similan Islands, Koh Bon, Koh Tachai and Richelieu Rock in Thailand.
She can accommodate up to 22 divers in fully air-conditioned twin bed cabins with en-suite facilities.
A large saloon, a comfortable and improved dive deck, a spacious sundeck, are what discerning divers are expecting.
The Similan Islands are by far the most spectacular group of dive sites that Thailand has to offer and are on par with some of the best diving destinations worldwide. Located about one hundred kilometres northwest of Phuket, the Similans consist of nine granite islands covered in lush, tropical, jungle foliage, surrounded by sparkling clear blue oceans. The beaches are made up of the finest white powdery sand and literally melt into the warm tropical waters.
The underwater scenery features beautiful hard and soft coral gardens. As well you will find huge granite boulders and dramatic rock formations including: holes, overhangs, swimthroughs and canyons. Drift diving is possible here as divers use the current to propel them along the vibrantly rich reefs teeming with unusual and interesting marine life.
Some 50 nautical miles North of the Similan Islands lies one of the best known dive sites in Asia. Just breaking the surface at low tide, Richelieu Rock is probably your best chance to have the whale shark experience. Other large pelagics such as eagle and manta rays are common visitors.
After diving one of the most famous dive sites, rest and indulge yourselves with our fantastic cuisine in our relaxing indoor and open dining areas, with provisions made for special dietary requests.
