MV Scuba Cat is an ideal scuba diving platform. The design of a very large catamaran boat operating amongst the protected waters of the Similans makes this the most "friendly" boat to be found, seasickness is rare. This truly is a boat for people who don't like boats and is an excellent choice for someone's first liveaboard experience. With the efficiency of the operation and convenience of scuba diving we are able to offer up to five dives a day for those who wish. In keeping with our philosophy of a relaxed atmosphere, we are happy to drop guests of on the beach provide ocean kayaks for your enjoyment as well as arrange our famous sunset volleyball game. Non divers are most welcome and are sure to enjoy the variety of activities available.

MV Scuba Cat is without a doubt the most comfortable and stable diving platform touring the Similan Islands. Our scuba divers can gear up in spacious surroundings and enter the water six abreast. So, the day is over and the sun is setting. Could it really be any better than this?
