Diving safaris head further from the coast, where water is crystal clear and the marine life is diverse. The number of species is the same as in nearby Phuket, but the nutrient-rich waters ensure that the species grow larger and the schools of fish are huge.
On a safari, the schedule is relaxed and even as the dives are done four a day it doesn't seem too much. After every dive is served something to eat and You can take a nap whenever You feel so. The relaxed dive life charms you easily, and it’s not uncommon for you to want to come on liveaboard again.
In the name of INTO Liveaboard, we publish all our liveaboards for which INTO divers are joining, so you know for sure when you will get great dives and surface time with like-minded divers. On INTO Liveaboards you always dive with an experienced guide and our own INTO divegroup.
The price of a liveaboard may seem pricey at first, but when you think about what the price includes, the daily price is very reasonable.

Safaris are dived for several days in a row, each with 2-4 dives. So you should make sure that you do not violate the no-fly recommendation, but wait at least 24 hours before flying after the safari.
It’s also good to note that safaris usually take two more dives on the last day.
