ABOUT THIS LIVEABOARD

The Thailand Aggressor will take you on an eight-day and seven-night cruise into some of the world's best dive sites located in the Andaman Sea, just off the west coast of Thailand. Thailand is known as "The Land of Smiles" for its warm and friendly people. This island paradise lies only 8 degrees north of the equator and enjoys a tropical climate year round. For divers, the true treasures of the Andaman Sea are found at famous sites in areas such as the Similan Islands and Richelieu Rock, where the warm, clear water draws large schools of tropical fish, manta rays, and the awe-inspiring whale shark. The wealth of aquatic life will delight underwater photographers and marine naturalists. The Similans are comprised of nine islands and nearly all of them are surrounded by huge underwater rock formations, eroded by the action of a relentless sea. These stone giants are home to an amazing variety of marine life, with depths often reaching 40 meters or more. The small rocky outcrop Richelieu Rock is covered in soft corals and offers an amazing variety of marine life, with the chance to see Stingrays, Guitar Rays, Leopard Sharks and large schools of Trevallies and Barracudas. It is also a ‘magnet’ for Whale Sharks and close encounters with two or three whale sharks are fairly common. Thailand LiveAboard diving is definitely some of the best diving in the world!

REVIEWS

Great staff, saw my first Manta Ray on it. Then on one dive, three Mantas came together. Half the group saw a Whaleshark as well, but not me...
