MV Sawasdee Fasai

Thailand Liveaboards

MV Sawasdee Fasai Similans Liveaboard

The MV Sawasdee Fasai is one of the best designed Thailand liveaboards operating to the Similan islands. At 37 metres long and 7.8 metres in beam she comfortably holds a maximum of 26 - 30 guests.

The one thing that makes Sawasdee Fasai really stand out is the thought that has gone into the general design and decor of the whole liveaboard giving a modern yet Thai-style feel all around. With her superb modern design including a massive luxury lounge area she really stands out in comparison with other liveaboard options. She was also completely refurbished in 2016 vastly improving the already excellent decor and facilities.

Dining Area

All meals are served at the large, comfortable open air dining area situated on the main deck. Tea, coffee water and fruit juices are readily available in this area throughout the trip with staff on hand to help with any requests. Food is a mix of Western and Thay-style buffet with vegetarian and vegan options available on request. This outside dining area is also great place for hanging out and enjoying the fresh air and the wonderful scenery of the Andaman sea.

MV Sawasdee Fasai - lounge area

Saloon

Also on the upper deck is the spacious air-conditioned lounge area with extremely comfortable sofas, large flat-screen TV and DVD player. With large, wide windows there ia always plenty of light and wonderful views making this a great place to hang out and escape from the midday heat.

MV Sawasdee Fasai - dive deck

Sun Deck

The sun deck is a large and spacious place to hang out and top up your tan or enjoy the cooling sea breezes of the Andaman sea. The views of the Similans islands from here are terrific and at night time it is a perfect place for star-gazing. With very little man-made light around the Similans islands, the views of the stars can be simply breath-taking!

Similan & Surin Park Fees

To help with the costs of reef protection and regeneration schemes, the Thai government has introduced a national park entry fee for all visitors to the Similans and Surin islands of 500 baht entry per person plus an additional 200 baht per diver per day. Please note that the Similans Islands and Surin Islands are different national parks so an entry fee will be required for each park and each time you enter. For the 4 day/4 night trip including Richeieu Rock you enter the Similans Park twice and the Surin park once. Park fees would currently be as follows:

  • 4 day/4 night (diver): 2,300 baht
  • 4 day/4 night (non-diver): 1,500 baht

This fee is in addition to the price of any liveaboard trip. The fee will be payable in cash (Thai Baht) direct to the boat tour leader on the day of the trip.

Disclaimer: As this is a government fee, we take no responsibility for any changes.
