Classic cruising in the Andaman Sea

Although the Junk typically sails with 12 divers, she is an excellent option for groups, especially if there are families, due to her capacity to carry 18 people.  With 2 triple and 2 quad rooms, which are normally used as twin or double cabins, family accommodation is easy & convenient.

There are 2 outdoor recreational areas giving divers plenty of room to spread out and relax between & after dives.

You find a combination lounge and dining area indoors on the main deck and there's a selection of onboard entertainment lurking behind the hand carved facades of shelves, cabinets and drawers in the salon, along with an extensive library of books and videos.

All of the cabins are located on the lower deck.

Meals are a combination of classic Asian and Western cuisine.  If you are a vegetarian or if you have food allergies, let us know when you book.  The chef will happily accommodate your needs.  The food on board The Junk always pleases ....

In between meals there is always fresh fruit available, cookies in a jar or a selection of banana cake, cheese cake, custard, fruits in heavy syrup, nuts & snacks for the people who have a drink after the day's diving is finished.
