I was particularly impressed with and comforted by the safe and supportive approach to diving your tour leaders, dive guides and instructors have, the boat was well run and I was able to enjoy each and every dive. There was an obvious concern for the environment and even a sense of giving something back with the green fins campaign.

The gateway to some of the best diving in the world.


Scuba Catís crew is very experienced (some have been with us since the start in 1994) and receives constant praise from our guests. Our dive crew have logged thousands of dives in these waters and have retained their enthusiasm and sense of wonderment. They excel in finding small and rare marine life specimens that are hidden to the untrained eye and are happy to show you how to photograph these creatures without destroying the coral.

Why not continue your PADI Diver Education whilst on board with a PADI Speciality?

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. For more information see our available courses.

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?
