MV Mandarin Queen

Amazing dive sites of South Andaman

At the beginning and end of the 2024/2025 season, MV Mandarin Queen 9 will make a total of six four-day, four-night liveaboards to South Andaman destinations. On the liveaboard, you will dive the beautiful sites of Koh Haa, Hin Daeng, Hin Muang and Koh Lipe. Join us!

MV Mandarin Queen 9 is a steel-hulled ship completed for safari use in 2023, with which a diving holiday is luxury both on the surface and under the surface!

The ship's 37.5-meter-long and 8-meter-wide stabilized hull offers a stable ride even in bigger waves. In cozy common spaces on the main and sun deck, the surface time between dives is vacation at its best, when you relax in the beautiful scenery.

The ship has a total of 12 air-conditioned and modern cabins and they can accommodate 24 customers comfortably. The ship is decorated in a modern way and there you can find all the necessary comforts, from television to media players. Photographers have been taken care of with their own camera room, where you can service the camera easily and comfortably. The brand new ship is real luxury, where even the smallest details have been taken into account.

According to Thailand's marine park regulations, large vessels are not allowed to drop divers at dive sites to protect the corals from propeller currents. Mandarin Queen 9 has two smaller boats on board for transfer to dive sites. Getting into them is easier than a regular rubber dinghys.
