Giamani reaches the very best reefs of Thailand and Burma in comfort and style.
Phuket is Thailand's southern paradise island. Unspoilt stretches of fine white sand are found along the entire west coast of the island. Each sun-drenched beach has a character and charm of its own. With its warm clear waters crammed with colourful, tropical fish-life and corals, set around stunningly beautiful tropical islands, the Andaman Sea boasts some of the best diving around and offers the best diving in Thailand by far.

- Very enjoyable and successful trip. All the arrangements worked perfectly, accommodation on the boat was comfortable and our A/C worked perfectly (a rare thing on a dive boat!). The food was the best we've ever had on a liveaboard, so nice to have proper Thai food rather than a poor attempt at western cuisine. Simon was very competent and also a really nice guy, and Stefan was an excellent dive guide for us - amazing knowledge of where all the tiny things live. The service provided by the boat crew on the dive platform was the most thorough we have ever experienced.
