SIT BACK, RELAX .... AND DIVE


The Phinisi was built in Indonesia in 2007 and has dived Indonesia, Thailand and the Maldives. She’s now back in Thailand cruising the best of the Andaman Sea and further north into Myanmar’s Mergui archipelago.   She has 7 plush cabins with private bathrooms and individually controlled AC and fans and takes a total of 18 guests.

Communal areas are both beautiful and relaxed.  There is a shaded outdoor area for relaxing and dining at the rear of the upper deck and a lovely sundeck with cushioned loungers.  Naturally, the common areas include an indoor lounge where you can find the charging stations for your electronics and the media center for listening to music or watching a video of your day’s diving.

Food is taken seriously on board The Phinisi. To start the day there is a light breakfast, then after the first dive 'the Full Monty' is served.  Lunch is served after the second dive, an Asian affair with plenty of seafood, various meats, rice, noodles, vegetables and fresh salads. Dinner consists of a full complement of Asian dishes but also western food.  Between meals you'll always find fresh fruit available, cookies in a jar, and after the night dive there will be some snacks waiting for you.
