Specifications

The diving from MV Sawasdee FaSai is done from the large and low diving deck at the rear of the boat. The captain uses CCTV cameras to communicate with the dive staff to ensure safety at all times. Guests’ private and rental diving equipment is stored at the dive deck for the whole trip.

Divers normally enter the water from the large dive deck, and at the end of each dive they are picked up by the tender dinghy if getting to the main boat’s buoy rope is inconvenient. Enriched-Air certified divers can enjoy free Nitrox fills, and anyone who doesn’t have their own scuba diving gear can rent high-quality items from MV Sawasdee FaSai.

MV Sawasdee Fasai specifications SunDeck

MV Sawasdee FaSai’s team of local crew and western diving staff are experienced and service minded. Safety is the most important factor for these diving cruises, but comfort and sociable fun is vital to enable guests to enjoy every minute on board. There is lots of space for guests to move around and either chat in pairs or groups or sunbathe alone.

The boat has a lounge with AV entertainment and dining areas to enjoy the delicious food that is served throughout the cruise. Diving makes you hungry, and the team understand that snacks & cookies are important between meals. The meals are a wonderful mixture of western and local cuisine that caters for all tastes and includes vegetarian options.
